Why two monitors Shift+Windows Key+Right or Left arrow no work?

On my Windows 7 machine I have two monitors.  It is very handy for me to be able to press the Shift key, along with the Windows Key and a right or left arrow key to make a window on one monitor jump to the other.

I have a client who has a similar setup, however, when he presses Shift+Windows Key + Right or left arrow, nothing happens.

Anyone have any idea what the problem and or solution is?

Just to double-check, does he actually have Aero enabled?  Here is a comprehensive tutorial that covers the essentials in order to ensure that he can use this capability:

I don't know about his machine having Areo enabled, I don't think he does.  I don't believe he does.  But on my machine I deliberately don't have Aero enabled and things work fine.

It may be prudent to have him step through that tutorial to ensure everything is configured properly.  For example, there a several hyperlinks within that guide to additional tutorials such as the one to actually turn Aero snap on/off:
