Move Window to Opposite Side of Previous Monitor

This script will move a window to the opposite side of the monitor to the left of the monitor it's currently on. For example, if it's currently on the left side of your right monitor, this script will move it to the right side of your left monitor.

Scripted Function (Macro) Code

using System;

// The 'windowHandle' parameter will contain the window handle for the:
//   - Active window when run by hotkey
//   - Window Location target when run by a Window Location rule
//   - TitleBar Button owner when run by a TitleBar Button
//   - Jump List owner when run from a Taskbar Jump List
//   - Currently focused window if none of these match

		//move it to the right
