If you insist on using Windows, the only way to dual-monitor is using UltraMon :)I have it set up at work so that one hotkey moves the window from one monitor to the other, and another toggles between maximized and normal state (there's a bunch of other you can use as well). It's actaully more usefull than it sounds at first.Also, UltraMon allows you to extend the taskbar to the second monitor, also very usefull.

Thanks Thomas. I keep hearing great things about UltraMon.

An easy way to do that would be AutoHotkey. It's useful for just about everything. My current script hotkeys multiple desktops, autocorrects most spelling errors, and has hotkeys for various types of google searches.In fact, as far as I can tell, this AHK script does nearly everything you could possibly want to do to your windows.

JumpWin is great! It's exactly what I was looking for! The only drawback is that it does not seem to work with certain Apps like VNC Viewer. Is there any chance to get the Sourcecode?Gerd

Hi Gerd - Alas, I'm not the author so I don't have the source code. Funny, it works fine for me with UltraVNC's viewer.

JumpWin stopped working for me, so I wrote a replacement for it using AutoHotkey: http://www.autohotkey.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=221100

JumpWin was a powertoy available with C source code on gotdotnet.com. It was first blogged about on the PowerToys blog. http://blogs.msdn.com/powertoys/archive/2005/08/15/451817.aspxI have the source code for version 1.6. I tried to post it in the comment but hit a 4k limitation on comment...
