locked using keyboard shortcuts for moving applications between virtual desktops in windows 10 with nvda?

Hello.

Is there a keyboard shortcut to do this? either with nvda or windows 10?

In linux you can set this up, i think the default is shift ctrl alt with left or right arrow keys. Pressing this combination would move whatever app you were on left or right one workspace.

I loved this feature on linux and would like to see something similar on windows.


Thanks.

Hello,

As far as I can tell, virtual desktops in windows are not that convenient, and being windows-10 specific and not really related to accessibility, there is no reason for nvda to do it either.
There is probably a third-party software or more that allows it available on the internet, though.

This is not and would never be an NVDA function, but a function of Windows.

And it's amazing how easy this answer is to find via a web search.  Start here: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/138736-move-open-app-one-virtual-desktop-another-windows-10-a.html

Then, if that's not enough, start cruising through the results from, https://duckduckgo.com/?q=move+running+app+between+virtual+desktops+Windows+10, yourself.

This topic is now locked.  It belongs on the Windows 10 for Screen Reader Users group, but it's not at all related to NVDA or any other screen reader.
