    Any Way Full Taskbar on Second Monitor


    Hey all,

    I know Windows doesn't natively allow for this, but is there a way to have FULL Taskbar capabilities on the second monitor? I would like to have Cortana/right side taskbar tray where the ^ is and all of the active icons on my second monitor. I don't care if I have to install a 3rd party software to do it, I just want the ability to right click and close applications like Spotify on my second monitor while I'm watching a fullscreen movie or gaming. I'm not just looking to move everything to the second monitor, I want to have the full taskbar on BOTH monitors.


    Thanks.

    In other words you want both monitors to be independent of each other, ex. so that each one has it's own copy of task bar and start menu?

    One partial solution is, press Windows key + P and then select "Duplicate" option, each monitor will be a mirror of the other.

    Alternative solution is using virtual desktop feature, it does not allow having virtual desktop for each monitor separately but you can assign specific programs to different virtual desktops, and switch between them with shortcuts.

    ex. While gaming press Windows key + TAB and select your second virtual desktop.
    OR, before selecting virtual desktop (but after WinKey + TAB) right click on any running program to customize on which desktop it should appear.
