Windows 7: Toolbar on 2nd monitor

24 Sep 2010   #11

Windows 7 Professional SP1 64 bit Retail

Actually, I wanted a taskbar on each monitor. I have no problems with screen setup. I can move my screen widgets like weather and NetWorx to either screen, just not the taskbar. Reason I'd like this is screen 1 is usually full screen and sometimes I can't see the taskbar.

You should be able to set that up with the nView control panel. It's not a feature built into windows

Mr Mad,
I ran thru the options on the nVidia panel and didn't see anything that would let me set taskbars on both monitors. That is not to say it does not exist but that I didn't see it.

Can you elaborate? My card is PNY GTS 250 with current drivers.

Laptop monitor dilema. Is it the monitor or the intigrated video card.
I didn't know if I should have put this in the general discussion page or the video card page but here it is. :D My laptop has been acting up today. I would open the lid and it would have strange colors. For example blues would be a strange red color. But it would automatically fix itself and...

How do I access my main monitor if broken in a multi-monitor setup?
I have a setup with 6 monitors. Today my main monitor broke and I couldn't find a way to shut the PC down since I couldn't access the main desktop to get to the Start menu. Is there a way to change which monitor is the main monitor without having access to the current main monitor?
