Monitor switching hotkey or software

I have a customer who has dual monitors but one is a flat panel in another room used for presentations (don't ask).

Windows 7 has a hotkey to move windows between monitors, Windows Key+Shift+Left or Right Arrow.  This is exactly what we need, but it doesn't work in Windows Vista.  Anyone know if there is a different hotkey in Vista, or a free program that will do the same?

The only way to do it in Vista is to right click on the desktop and change the monitor settings.

Or you could grab a cheap desktop KVM and hook the monitors to that. The KVM would have keyboard shortcuts or a single button on the KVM that would switch the monitors.

Ultramon is good for that, but it costs about 40$.

There is a freeware called EasyMon which performes similar functions for dual monitors like those provided by Windows 7.
