My favorite Windows 7 feature (so far)

I’ve upgraded several systems to Windows 7, and so far my favorite feature has to be using the keyboard to move and dock windows around very easily.  The keystrokes you need to know:

<windows key> + <left arrow> = dock window to left half of the current monitor
<windows key> + <right arrow> = dock window to right half of the current monitor
<windows key> + <up arrow) = maximize the window
<windows key> + <down arrow> = restore window or minimize it depending on its state

For multi monitor rigs:

<windows key> + <shift> + <left arrow> = move window in its current shape and location to the monitor to the left (it will wrap around)
<windows key> + <shift> + <right arrow> = move window in its current shape and location to the monitor on the right (it will wrap around)

If you want to maximize the height of the selected window, while not changing its width, try:
<windows key> + <shift> + <up arrow>
and naturally <windows key> + <shift> + <down arrow> will shrink the window back down to its previous height, or minimize it.

I know using the keyboard for anything but typing emails and web pages is passé, but give these shortcuts a shot!  You might like ‘em!
