Quick Command for Move Tab to New Window

This makes it easier to tile tabs or to move a tab to another screen for example.
@plusminus0 I am not sure how it would make tiling any easier.
There is already a command to move tabs to a new window: it is called "Detach Tab." However, that just moves it to a new window. Only the Tab Context menu can be used to move a tab to a specified window.
@plusminus0 I would like to build on this request and also add the option to move tab to another already existing window - like in the context menu options
@masterleo29 The context menu says "Move Tab to > New Window" because one might have one or more windows already open. The "Detach Tab" command can only create a new window. If you had two or three windows open, to which window would it move the tab?
@pesala If i m right, on the context menu there is also "Move tab to > Existing Windows with X tabs". So an idea would be one command per window. And Maybe "move tab to last opened window" or similar
@masterleo29 Some users may open ten or more windows, so a separate command for "Move tab to window 1" etc., is a non-starter. This is why there is a context menu, where you can see "Window with nn Active Tabs (Page Title).
Move to most recently opened window would be pretty useless as the user would need to remember which window was opened most recently, and/or which window was most recently active. A context menu avoids those problems.
A command to show the context menu? Hardly worth the effort.
@pesala You may be right. Was just an idea. Besides, the "Detach tab" will do the trick for me. Thanks for the replys
One last idea (this one is worse than the others xD): A command "Move to window ..." and then show the same kind of "view" you get when u cycle through tabs but with the windows you have. It could look cool. (maybe in the thumbnails could be the number of tabs and the preview of the current one, not sure. Visuals are not my area)
