10.7: Drag Windows Between Desktops
Authored by: scottbayes on Mar 01, '12 06:51:25PM

Treating your leftmost window as #1 (not sure if Dashboard usurps this when it's set up as a Desktop):

- go to the Desktop containing the window you want to move, and click and hold on the window's title bar (not on the proxy icon in the top center)

- hold Control and hit the digit for the Desktop to which you'd like to move the window

You'll be whisked away to that Desktop, baggage in hand. Think Harry Potter. Portkey. Flue powder.

You may need to set up keyboard shortcuts to enable this--I forget what the default was: System Preferences > Keyboard, Keyboard Shortcuts tab, category Mission Control in the left column, "Switch to Desktop " items on the right. If ^1 takes you to Desktop 1, then click-and-holding on a window's titlebar and typing ^1 will teleport that window to Desktop 1.

I haven't found a way to move more than 1 window at a time this way, unfortunately, but for 1 or 2 windows it's quicker than the other techniques.
