keyboard shortcut to throw active window to other monitor

"I have two monitors. Windows XP. NVIDIA video driver.
I'd like to be able to throw an active window to the other monitor with a keystroke.
The instructions say ""open NVIDIA control panel and find the place to define user keystrokes"", but I can find no such item in the control panel (or in the nview application).
Does anyone know how to do this?"

"Since Windows 7 this function has been provided by the OS.

Win + Shift + ► : Move focused window right a screen.

Win + Shift + ◄ : Move focused window left a screen.

These functions will wrap around, thus if you only have two screens you'll not notice a difference between both functions."

Another alternative is WinSplit Revolution, which gives similar short cuts to throw windows around the screen or to a second monitor. I've used it for years and would recommend it.
