Describe the bug
I have tree monitors installed. When I use a recipe to move a window to a specific monitor AND to a specific virtual desktop, it only works, if I am on a different virtual desktop. If I'm on the same virtual desktop, the window won't move.

To Reproduce

  • Set up the recipe as seen below:
    grafik
  • I go to virtual desktop no. 3 (the target desktop to move the window to)
  • I hit the assigned key binding. (no other app uses this binding afaik)
  • Nothing happens.

Expected behavior
The window is supposed to move to another monitor.

System information:

  • Windows 10 Version 1803 build 17134.590
  • MaxTo version 2.0.0-rc2

Thank you again for this report. If you run this on the command line, it would actually hang indefinitely:

maxto window move /VirtualDesktop 1 /Monitor "\\.\DISPLAY1"

I have fixed this now, so that we do not attempt to move a window between virtual desktops if the virtual desktop corresponds to the desktop you want to move the window to.

This fix will be in the next release.
