10.5: Move windows to Spaces via keyboard shortcut
Authored by: barstep on Nov 05, '07 08:47:04AM

Try holding down the mouse with one hand and navigating around Spaces using Control + Arrow keys on a MacBook Pro. If you're left handed you may manage to click mouse and Control with one hand whilst pressing Arrow keys with the other.
I rather prefer the Fn + F8 option myself.

In praise of what you're doing - these Hints are proving really useful. It's the little things that make all the difference when you're coming to terms with an OS update. Keep them coming guys.

You seem to have missed Rob's gloss on this hint -- in the System Prefs set up Spaces so you can use [metakey]-[numberkey] hotkeys to switch spaces. Then you can move a window to another space by clicking and holding on the window's titlebar using your right hand and using just your left hand to hit the hotkey for a particular space.
