Adding Multiple monitors to your setup definitely increases productivity. But it can get all tricky without use of the right software.

Windows 7 gives you a decent Multi-Monitor support, but trust me its only the beginning.

While hunting down for better Multi Monitor softwares, I tested a dozen of available options and then shortlisted a few options:

1. Display Fusion

DisplayFusion kills the pain and adds a taskbar to every monitor that works and looks just like the Windows Taskbar. It also lets you put different wallpaper on each monitor right from your local drive or from Flickr.


Features:
  • Advanced Multi-Monitor Taskbar support
  • Different Wallpaper on each monitor OR span multiple monitors with single wallpaper.
  • Easily move a running window to different screen with one click.
  • Special TitleBar Buttons to move/size/control windows among screens.
  • Auto-snap windows to the edge of your monitor
  • Integrated Flickr.com, Vladstudio.com image search & download
  • Fully Customizable HotKeys: Move windows to next monitor, maximize in next monitor, maximize single window to multiple monitors, do almost anything your imagination lets you between multiple monitors.


Display Fusion is available in two Versions: Free, and Pro version ($25)

Good find! Display Fusion has been tried here as well as having UltraMon presenty in use. The WinSplit program however will find quite a bit of use here!

I had hoped that with Windows 7 MS would have proper multi monitor support built in without the need for 3rd party programs.

Actually it does if you know where to look mainly in the "Control Panel>Display" section there with or without a program like Display Fusion or UltraMon being installed.

I ran into when first setting a new pair of lcds and you can change which will be monitor #1 when extending the desktop. You can see cloned desktops or also see only monitor #1 with any desktop there.

Now for customization like having a different wallpaper on each display even seeing the extra taskbar as well as buttons for open windows on the second display you would then need a program like one of those.
