Windows 7: Dual monitor problem

18 Jan 2011   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

I use this program to put a taskbar on the other screens,
Realtime Soft UltraMon

It also allows you to easily have different wallpapers and screens savers on each screen.

A couple of more to try (I prefer Ultramon that Zepher linked too),

Version Comparison | DisplayFusion

MultiMonitor TaskBar

For whatever reason Microsoft hasn't added the ability to have the taskbar on more than the primary monitor when using extended mode.

I had hoped to have icons and taskbar on both but that wont work unless I have them both at the low res which is unacceptable.
Unless you're looking to have identical monitors (clone mode) then you need one of the above to get a taskbar on each monitor. Icons on the other hand are as easy as just placing the ones you want on each monitor.
