Move windows between displays using shortcuts in KDE Plasma

I have a dual-display setup for my desktop and I usually set up custom keyboard shortcuts in KDE Plasma to allow moving windows between the displays easily. However, the KWin shortcuts section of the Plasma System Settings app has multiple shortcuts named in a confusingly similar way.

So I am writing this post to just document what I did to get my custom Ctrl +Alt + <left/right> arrow shortcut working.

Set up custom shortcuts for the Window to Previous Desktop and the Window to Next Desktop entries to get this working. As mentioned above, I use Ctrl + Alt + <left arrow> for the former and Ctrl + Alt + <right arrow> for the latter.
