Keyboards intended for use with Windows systems often have a dedicated Windows key. This key, when pressed with either the left or right arrow key, lets you rapidly reposition an app in any of three positions (Figure B). Both key combinations (Windows key + left arrow and Windows key + right arrow) cycle the position of an app through left/right, center screen, and then left/right, when pressed repeatedly in sequence.

On a Windows system, press the Windows key and left arrow to reposition the active app window to the left side of the screen. Additional presses of these keys will rotate the app through positions on the left, center and right area of the screen. (The combination of the Windows key and right arrow does the same to the right.)
