Mission Control allows for multiple desktop (spaces). Does there exist a keyboard shortcut for moving an application's window from one to another?


You can hold the window with your mouse and use the usual keyboard shortcuts to move the window across desktops.


No, but you can use a third party application, like BetterTouchTool, which allows you to bind key combinations to user defined actions, including moving windows between spaces.

  • This is the best solution I have found. In BetterTouchTool's preferences, choose "Add New Shortcut.., and then choose "Move Window One Space/Desktop Left|Right" from "Trigger Predefined Action" – ezrock Aug 14 '17 at 16:33

This requires you to use the touchpad or mouse, but: Hold the window (at the top bar) with your touchpad or mouse and use Control-1, Control-2, Control-3, etc. to move a window to another space. ( control is the ^ key).
