I’m one of the many who’ve been trying out the Windows 7 Release candidate - yes, I know that it’s available retail now, it’s on the Christmas list.
One thing that’s bugged me is the apparent lack of follow through with Multi-monitor support. You see, if you drag windows around with the mouse, Windows 7 offers some useful auto-dock functionality, but only at the outer edges of the screens.
So, on my left-hand monitor, I can easily dock a window to fill the left-hand half, and on my right-hand monitor, I can easily dock a window to fill the right-hand half, but not in the other two spaces.
Or so I thought.
Turns out that I was wrong - while you can’t achieve it with the mouse, you can auto-dock elsewhere by using the keyboard.
Specifically, Windows-Left and Windows-Right.
I stumbled across this by accident - a wonderful accident. Less time spent on Window management means more time to spend on other things.
