Sure. Get Display Fusion. :)

A great program with many features other than just multiple screen task-bars.

Natively, as of right now, it cannot be done otherwise. I'm not sure if Display Fusion is the only one to offer this as it's the only one I have ever used.

Thanks, a guy. I found this on the MultiMon site:

We created MultiMon taskbar to solve this issue in our office. It creates a second (and third) taskbar which will be put on extended monitors. Each taskbar display items from that monitor only.
With Display Fusion such is an option. One can determine as to whether or not the multiple task-bars contain only what is on the particular monitor or display all tasks on all monitors.

If I am misinformed, please let me know.

UltraMon appears to be quite commensurate to Display Fusion.

Thanks, Airbot, have you ever tested Display Fusion? If you have, how does UltraMon compare or are you like me and have only used the multi-monitor program of your choice?

I tried all these apps, but I wasn't satisfied, so I solved the problem in an other way:
On my left screen I Use the taskbar on the right side of the screen. This way if I'm on the right screen with my mouse, I don't have to go back so far to the other sreen, and I have more space vertically.
