    Just got a dual monitor setup at work. I'd really love to have a copy of the task bar on the second monitor. Did a quick Google search and tried a couple, but one wouldn't install - said I needed to upgrade my .NET which I'm sure IT would not want me to do, and the other is pretty crappy. Anyone know of a good FREE program that will put a copy of the task bar onto my second monitor? By copy I mean the clock and all the program shortcut I have pinned to the task bar so that I can open a program from either monitor's task bar. Thanks.

    Ultramon. Costs 29.95 but well worth it. I would not use a dual monitor without it.

    Thanks. I found the actualtools one too and am trying it out. Will look at the UltraMon one too.

    Nvidia driver or Catalist will do that for multi-monitors config.

    I just upgraded to the latest driver for nVidia GEForce and don't find any option for taskbar on the second monitor.

    When you choosing dual monitor in the wizard by NVIDIA Control Panel, there is a choice.

    While I didn't use the wizard on the upgrade, I do have them configured as large horizontal display. The Wallpaper stretches across both but the taskbar is only on the right monitor.
