Taking Ctrl: Arrange Windows

The Problem

When working on one screen it can be quite fiddly to view windows side by side.

The Solution

A quick way to manage how windows are arranged on screen is to use the Windows key + the directional arrows (the ones on the number pad work too).

Windows + left/right will move your current window to that side of the screen. Keep tapping the direction arrow to move it across further, or to the next monitor along in a multi-monitor setup.

Windows + up makes your current window full screen, while Windows + down will stop it being full screen.
