    Move Skype to the main screen - how to?

    Setup: 2 screens on my notebook - primary (main) and secondary (TV) connected via HDMI (PC in 2 screen mode). Ubuntu 17.10 and Skype (unknown version, presumably the latest).

    Problem: Skype window launches in the secondary window (TV) only.

    Q: How to switch Skype to the main screen?

    Re: Move Skype to the main screen - how to?

    Does the move windows keyboard shortcuts work?
    (I forget what hey are, I think something like shift ctrl + arrow key to move winodws from monitor to monitor.
    But it might be something else,)
    It should be listed in the keyboard shortcuts in settings > keyboard.
    (It might be listed as screen)

    Edit: oh it seems like it should be shift + super + arrow key to move from monitor to monitor.
    But you can double check at the settings page.

    TY for the answer.

    Yes, I' ve found the hotkeys descriptions and have some of them tried but to no avail. Probably I need more info on the multi-monitor concept in general.
