Click on the top left of the window, then choose 'occupy workspace' and choose the window you like

I hope you can do this even by right clicking at the top of the window and clicking "occupy workspace" and select the required one. This works in Hp-Unix.

Good Luck.Smilie

Thanks a lot every body
I am using two monitors(screens), and my question was how to transfer windows between monitors and I can see only workspaces of the same monitor on each one. So for example if you are in the second screen(monitor) you can see only second monitor(screen) workspaces.
