For Windows 7-10 applications, the Windows key with the left, right, up, and down arrows shifts the window to the left half screen, then right half next monitor, the part of that monitor, then left half of that monitor. Windows-right does similar. Windows up and down have other functions.
Vivado does this for the whole Vivado windo. But when you detact a sub-window, it does not. This appears to be a bug.

What you are talking about is for applications of "windows OS" that can be minimized, maximized, moved left and right (windows OS supported). Here the Vivado "window" - an application of Windows OS (7/10) does this perfectly.
But, the docked/floating window is within the tool vivado (main window). So for this, the tool has its independence to behave (within the tool) based on its features and not try to replicate the "Windows OS" behavior. In my opinion, this rules out the chances of a bug.

@prathikm I see your point about it being within Vivado. Still when I have two Word windows open, they can be moved around as I describe. This is a useful and consistent feature. It may not be a bug, but it is something I expect from Windows windows, so if you want to call it a missing feature, that's valid. Regardless, I wish Vivado did this.
