Number of monitors (or virtual monitors) and productivity

GridMove's default hotkey Win-G isn't going to work on Windows 10 (and probably Win 8.x) as it has a different function predefined. (I tried that already and changed it to Win-W)

In windows 8.1 I think we can mantain the combination win+G with no problem.
It goes well in my case.

I obtain the same grids in the three monitors i have.
In one of them  to the last right appear a little window with two -
Something like this :    - -
When I select that window and put by example 04 the active windows move to that grid.
In the rest of the method i am lost.

Seems the more simple program.

I'd say GridMove is a not very simple application, so it might take some more time to get used to, and get the configuration just right.

I am trapped in configuring. Just after window+G hotkey.
I don't understand the instructions or help.

the way I use it is:

=> you should see a grid with numbers overlaid on the screen
=> pressing a number will move the active window to that position
If you dont want the layout shown. pressing the 'N' key will move onto the next layout, press again for the next, and so on

If you want a layout that is not included, have a look at the gridmove section in the forum, you can add new layouts, or make your own.

Disclaimer, I've never used gridmove with multiple monitors

EDIT// this on Win.7 (see Ath's post below)

Owww I see your post now !!!!!!!!

In windows 8.1 i can mantain the hotkey win+g
In multiple monitors goes well.
If with the standard grid you see three portions, with three monitors you see the same rule repeated into the three monitors and subsequently nine portions or grids.
I have tried the way you tell and works fine for me too and so I don't need to put the cursor in the little window with two "-"
I have to put 04 because the program reserved a number to undo in each of the monitors.

So I have 1-Undo, 2,3,4,5-Undo, 6,7,8,9-Undo,10-11-12

I am beginning to feel more confortable with this....


In my case the Key "N" seems not work in any way. If I insist write the letter N in the active window

How do you get that feature.

The interesting thing with three monitors may be to have different patterns in each one.
By example :
one grid in the smaller one,
two grid in the middle one,
and four grid in the largest one.

Any experienced user to give a good advice ?


Some time ago I get scripts to launch a "program scenery" . Launch several files o folders with predefined programs.
So was I am expecting of GridMove is something like that.
Launch automatically several programs, files and folders and distribute in the grids.
In a few seconds I can have all the necessary tools for a work.

Another feature may be to open a program in a predefined grid.
