When running multiple screens on Windows 11, users can switch existing tabs or applications between two or more displays effortlessly. This article will show you how to move a window to another monitor on Windows 11.
Enable Extend Mode
To move open windows between multiple monitors on Windows 11, you will need to use a special multi-monitor mode called Extend, which allows you to extend your ability to work on all screens. To enable this feature: press the Win + P combination to open the Project menu. On the menu that appears, click Extend.
It’s important to note that some games that support multiple monitors have their own in-game multi-display settings. Make sure you check the game’s settings mode for display options after switching to Windows Extend mode to make sure they work correctly.
Move Windows to Another Monitor Using the Mouse
After enabling the Windows Extend mode, it’s easy to move app windows between two or more monitors with your mouse:
Click the title bar of the window you want to move and drag it to the edge of the screen toward your target display. When the window meets the edge of the first screen, it will begin to appear on the other monitor. Release your mouse button once the app window is where you want it.
To reverse the process, just drag the window back to the edge of the screen again.
Move Windows to Another Monitor Using the Keyboard
In Windows 11, another convenient method to move an open window to another screen is to use the shortcut key directly. Here’s how to do it:
To move a window to the left of the current screen, press Windows + Shift + Left Arrow.
To move a window to the right of the current screen, press Windows + Shift + Right Arrow.
NOTE: This method of using keyboard shortcuts works on all monitors that you have connected to your PC. If a window reaches the highest-numbered monitor while moving, it will wrap around and appear on the lowest-numbered monitor, and vice-versa.
In a few simple steps, you can easily move a window to another monitor on Windows 11. Try it now!
