Howdy, welcome to the forum! As you might have already figured out, this is a great community full of people who love to help.

You’re looking for the Manipulate a Window action. Take a look at that wiki entry because it explains it quite well. If you’re still stuck, let us know and we’ll be happy to provide some samples.


I have 3 screens - 1. LG ULTRAWIDE 2.Lg Ultrawide 3. Wacom One 13

I wish to move an application from say screen 1 to screen 2 or screen 3.

How do I do it?

Hi Murray,

Below is a sample macro that will move the front application’s front window between screens one through three. Note how the manipulate a window action is configured (also ignore the typo in the alert action :sweat_smile:).

The manipulate a window action is quite powerful and can use calculations to perform resizing as well.
