I can switch to another desktop by pressing CTRL-RIGHT or CTRL-LEFT. Can I also somehow take the active window with me to the new active desktop (similar to Ubuntu/Unity)?


Options provided by OSX

  1. Using your mouse, click and hold the window you want to move to another Space.
  2. a) While still holding your mouse button down, use your Spaces keyboard shortcut to move to the desired Space. (default: ctrl+/)

    b) Drag the window to the edge of the screen. Wait a second or two and the window will be dragged into the next space.

    You can change the delay before the OS switches spaces using...(here 2 seconds)

     defaults write com.apple.dock workspaces-edge-delay -float 2.0; killall Dock;

  • This is a good answer - but it sucks that there's no way to do this without installing apps. – jhabbott Aug 4 '12 at 12:46
