The trick for docking a window from the keyboard is neat. Unfortunately (well, just for me, that is), I will still have use the mouse since I actually adjust the window after docking to be skinnier than half the width of the screen. I have a widescreen so that I can work with many windows at once, and having one app take up an entire half of the display defeats the purpose of the widescreen (especially when I don't need the app to take up that amount of width).
Ah well. Welcome to Windows. Thanks anyway.
