Discrete cards have this feature (both nVidia and ATI) but it sounds like you have a laptop (based on having Intel graphics) so that's not an option.

There's software available that can do it for you. Give this one a shot:

MultiMonitor TaskBar

Let me know if it helps!

PS: Technically this could go in Software but it's no big deal.

To do that I think you will have to go into ultramon and turn off the super bar. Then drag your taskbar to the other screen. Then turn the ultramon super bar back on. If you are on a laptop and don't always use dual monitors I don't I do it.

With UltraMon it's called Smart Taskbar. Look under options. You can mirror what's on your main display or have the 2nd monitor have it's own taskbar (standard) for the windows that are opened on it.

Edit: regardless of your choice Smart taskbar only displays open windows, not the start orb, not the pinned icons, not the system tray area nor clock.

If you want all that stuff on the other monitor you need to make it the primary monitor. However, I do not believe it will show on both.
