Default Dual Monitor Task Bar

Finally got around to ordering and installing new dual monitors for the staff.

Looking for program to add a taskbar to the second monitor..

Found Displayfusion.

Anyone use it and like it?

Any others that are simple for our not so techy staff or download this and start playing with it?


Thank you !

Windows 10 has it built in by default if that upgrade is on the horizon.

interesting topic... I've been using dual 27" monitors for a long time (I would put 3 or 4 if I would have the space) and never knew or felt the need of multiple task bars... seems very good, although I doubt I would pay for it..

I've used Multimon for a while, and now use one called Actual Multiple Monitors. I have triples and have the taskbar set to that only the programs on that monitor show in its taskbar.

This - and seriously, why would you want to clutter both screens with the task bar?

Saves miles on the mouse.

When you have lots of apps open it's nice to know what's active on each monitor. Enable auto-hide and there is no clutter on any of the screens.

I have 3 monitors and never thought about a task bar on each. Running Windows 7 Professional.
