    Cubase- move plugin window to another monitor with key command?

    Hi all, I'm on Windows 10 and Cubase 10. Is there a way to move a plugin GUI window to another monitor with a single key command? I know normally on Windows you can use Windows-Shift-Right/Left to bounce a window between monitors. However, this is not working with pop up plugin windows. Any advice?

    Is there any performance gain from syncing all CPU cores?

    I've seen in a couple of audio-optimizing guides for PC around the web that disabling turbo boost and speed step are better for audio work. This would effectively make all the cores run at the same speed. One could theoretically even sync them to the turbo boost frequency or overclock frequency...
