Two displays, screen configuration.

I want to install two displays that show different screens, but I also want a taskbar on both screens. Is this at all possible?
I could never work it out on vista and now I'm about to upgrade to windows 7, I'm sick of vista haha.

    Hi :)

    Yes 7 can do it...assuming you have a decent graphics card, its called CLONE MODE..or DUPLICATE MODE...

    All the best Brett :)
  2. Yeah I'll be installing a Radeon HD 7850, so I'll definitely be covered haha :P

  4. Using cloning will not give you two different screens, but the same screen on both monitors.

    To extend the taskbar on both monitors you need a 3rd party utility, which slows down the graphics processing quite a bit.

    UltraMon is one of these, http://www.realtimesoft.com/ultramon/

    Hi :)

    He didnt ask for EXTENDED taskbar , he asked for a taskbar on EACH screen... :)

    We use Ultramon, which is good though, but not free...

    All the best Brett :)
  6. You can use Actual Multiple Monitors to do that
