I'll take a shot at this one.

There are two things you can do.  Both involve the use of button 2.
In the pager, you can use button 2 to drag and drop any window into
another pane of the desktop.  But the handiest is that you can (with
button 2, again) drag a window from the pager on to the current
screen.  That may also work from other desktops; I don't know because
I use only one.
