Dual Monitors and Windows Taskbar

December 14th, 2006 ^Lestat Leave a comment Go to comments

I just got myself 2, 19″ wide screen monitors at work. Finally, some desktop, and some desktop, real estate!

Monitor 1 set as the primary, and monitor 2 is the extended desktop. The taskbar however only stays on monitor 1. I found some nice freeware: Oscar’s Multi-Monitor taskBar.

This creates another taskbar on monitor 2. It’s not the pretty XP taskbar but it does do the job. There are hotkeys in which you can flip any window your working on, onto the next monitor or visa versa. There is also a clock similar to the windows clock.

The freeware also puts a button that looks like a play button next to your window minimize/maximize button. This will also quickly move any window you have open to the next monitor.

Multi-Monitor taskbar currently supports up to 3 monitors.

The site boasts that there is no fat in the software. As far as I can tell it has a pretty low footprint as well.
