Three Monitors Shortcut to each Monitor

Hi, I imagine the software does this but I can't find out how..

I am an Ultrauseless convert, but one thing I liked was the ability to click the next monitor icon, and it offered me a list of my 3 monitors that I could easily click on to move from 1st to third monitor etc. I know I can do this with "previous monitor", but I like the option selection option, or failing that an Icon for each monitor that shortcuts to each monitor. IE 1 2 3.

Can this be done, or is there another better way

Alternatively a Control Alt 1 2 3 for move currently selected window to said Monitor.

Second this! I'm using a 2x2 quad-monitor configuration, so Previous/Next aren't particularly intuitive and can take a few keystrokes to get the window to the right monitor.

Actually, what I'd absolutely *love* would be a set of directional HotKey actions similar to the current "Move window to next monitor" HotKey action... i.e., "Move window to monitor (above/below/left/right)". Then I could just setup hotkeys for Ctrl+Win+ArrowKey to move in the appropriate direction.

Failing that, a simple "move window to monitor #x" as networkn suggested would work too. Although IMO, for a grid layout of monitors, being able to just tap the arrow key in the desired direction would "feel" more intuitive than thinking in terms of "monitor #x".

Hi There!

Actually I didn't like the button click show a graphical representation of the window list, but if if could do this and then I could type a monitor number on the keyboard that might work. 1 2 3 icons on the Window Title would be ok for 3, but not ok for 6 I wouldn't think...

I think something very similar should be turning up soon: http://www.binaryfortress.com/Forum/index.php?topic=1500.msg6704#msg6704.

My three monitors are in a row, but I do like the idea of directional arrows too.

The next version of DisplayFusion will have the ability to create a "Move window to monitor #x" HotKey, and also bind it to a TitleBar Button. It will be much easier than the current "move next/previous" with 6 monitors.
