No, you won`t.

Just right click on your desktop and choose screen resolution, the popup window will be all you need to manage the 2 displays.

Display Fusion is great freeware you can use to have 2 different images on each display or you can use it to span an image across the 2 displays, but 1st you must get a picture that matches the resolution of the 2 monitors combined. Such as this image I have across my 2 1920 x 1080 monitors.

This picture is 3840 x 1080

Ultramon and DisplayFusion (mentioned) are the top contenders there. If using Win 8, it has native dual display task bar support, so not really needed there (for task bar play).

+1 for paid version of DisplayFusion - I have four monitors and need a taskbar on two of them and need to not have a task bar on the other two, plus a different desktop wallpaper on each monitor. Plus I can control on which monitor which software opens by default.
