Recently, I discovered that one can hold a window while switching Spaces in Leopard. The window can then be dropped onto any other space. This, of course, isn’t the only way to move a window to another space. But, I like this better than dragging windows off the screen.
Here’s how it’s done:
- Grab the window you wish to move by clicking and holding with the mouse.
- Switch spaces directly (default: ^ Number Key) or with the arrow keys (default: ^ Arrow Key).
- Drop the window on the desired space.
The movie below shows these steps in action. On my keyboard, using the arrow keys to switch spaces is cumbersome, so I usually use the ^ Number Key combination to switch directly to the space I want.
If you can’t see the movie above, you can download the Quicktime file directly.
For more tips, take a look at this Spaces tips screencast (the production values are much higher than my Quicktime movie).
