Windows 7: Three monitor question

Three monitor question

I have a dual monitor setup and my TV in another room as the third monitor.

Is there a way to set the two actual monitors up with a shared wallpaper and a completely separate wallpaper for the third monitor (TV)?

Or even a separate wallpaper for each screen would work...

Take a look at DisplayFusion: Multi-Monitor Taskbar and Desktop Wallpaper*|*Binary Fortress Software - the current version has minimal support for The Windows Taskbar, but I am using a beta of the next version and it works - and well.

Many thanks. I always used Ultramon but that doesn't work with Windows 7.

I picked up a copy of the 3.0.1 "Pro" version but the 2nd taskbar looks like Windows 95 and I can't minimize a window to it, rendering it useless. How is it on 3.0.2?

In other news, that 'DisplayFusion' app apears to have also removed the Windows 7 watermark.

3.0.2 is the same as others. The beta that John is referring to above is the first where it works well. Here's the upcoming 3.0.3 changelog:

Does anyone know when this might go public? Any screenshots John?

Here is a screen shot of the DF taskbar at 50% transparency, and only icons on that monitor showing:

For reference, see http://picasaweb.google.com/johnlgal...43358698731426 to see what the DT image looks like (explains the shadow effect) as well.

Does it only show windows which appear on that taskbar?

In other words, does it just show the windows which are open on that monitor, or can you also minimize windows to that particular monitors taskbar?

That is an adjustable setting - either only show apps on that window or duplicate the main taskbar....
