Move window between spaces on macOS
I always use multiple spaces on macOS and the typical way to move windows between spaces always felt annoying:
- open Mission Control;
- grab the needed window on the current space and drag it to another space;
- open the new space.
Given that I mostly use keyboard shortcuts for quick switching between spaces
(which can be configured in
System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts -> Mission Control ), this whole
multi-step operation involving several animations is way too slow.
There's a better way:
- without opening Mission Control, grab and hold the window on the current space;
- use the keyboard shortcut (described above) to switch to a different space -- the window will follow.
There are tools that let you do this without involving a mouse: like yabai or amethyst, but I stopped using them since macOS is hard to operate without a mouse in the first place, even when running the aforementioned tools.
