The task at hand to be solved is rather straightforward:
- I have a dual monitor system (laptop with external monitor as primary screen). The screen sizes are different.
- I have a window on one of the screens.
- I want to have the window maximized on the other screen.
Even though this sounds simple enough, I have often longed for an automated tool to do this. Especially if the window is maximized on the first screen, you have to un-maximize (i.e., restore) it, drag it to the other screen and then maximize it again. Those precious seconds that interrupt the workflow... :-)
I reckon that it might be nontrivial to figure out into which direction/to which coordinates to move the window before maximizing it again.
The user interface to this tool should be a (probably customizable) keyboard shortcut which applied the method to the currently active window.
