It’s hard to believe that with as cheap and as popular as LCD monitors are becoming, that an application such as Multimonitor Taskbar, hasn’t come along with several other competitors. My old job I used a dual monitor setup, but always found it extremely annoying that the Windows Taskbar did not extend to the second monitor. I did my research and came up with the amazing application, called UltraMon. Ultramon simply extended your taskbar to your second, third, or sixth monitor, and display the application as it should, on the secondary monitor. The fallback, a single license ran $39.95 and although worth it, was still a lot of money for what it did. I spent hours, days and months trying to find a freeware app, that did the same thing, but never did.
Well finally, just a few years later…Martin, the genius over at GHacks has finally come up with a free application that does the same thing.
The program is simply called ‘MultiMonitor Taskbar’ and does everything that Ultramon does, offers a freeware version, but also offers a Pro version. The pro version adds theme support, more flexibility with windows movement, and a few other minor features. The free version gives you essentially everything you need, and much more.
So, if you do have multiple monitors and are using Windows Vista or XP, you need to jump on this incredibly user friendly and stable application.
