Spectacle makes use of several keyboard shortcuts that trigger specific window actions. A window action is nothing more than a command that tells Spectacle how to change the size and/or position of a particular window.

A keyboard shortcut consists of one or more modifier keys paired with a character key. The default keyboard shortcuts can be changed at any time. Use new key combinations to trigger window actions, or clear particular keyboard shortcuts to disable window actions entirely.

You can also click to expand the Spectacle menu from top menu bar to quickly resize and reposition current window or app on Mac.
