Hi Arioman, how you are describing the issue is that you want to use the taskbar on both displays without needing to set primary every time? This is only achievable in clone mode for the displays, to set clone mode, the TV needs to have the same resolution as your display, so for example, your monitor has a resolution of 1366x768 and your TV i assume runs at a maximum of 1920x1080, you need to set this resolution on your TV to use clone mode and then both screens will display the taskbar, unfortunately you cannot have both displays showing 2 separate desktops as clone mode "clones" the display.
