Think of an action, involving what your talking about, and then try to describe that action in as much detail as you can.

The reason that I ask is because you should be able to just move the mouse to the screen you want. Drag and drop applications where you need them with the mouse. If that's not what you are seeing then we need more information describing the problem.

There are keyboard shortcuts to switch between apps and windows right? If you have one app in one window and another app in another window, even if they're the same app, then that should accomplish what you're really after right?

Yes, [Alt]+[tab] toggle the focus between screens (monitors) !!!, that is what I want. I didn' saw it, because the mouse rested on the offing :oops:

There should also be another shortcut (ctrl-alt-tab for me) that switches to tasks in any virtual desktop.
