Windows 10: Multi Monitor - Taskbar - Remove "Start button & Clock"

    Multi Monitor - Taskbar - Remove "Start button & Clock"


    PC just updated to 10 Anniversary.

    I have three monitors, I want to remove the start button and clock from second/third monitor. (I.E A blank task bar)

    I do not want to disable the second/third monitor's task bar, I like the applications running that appear on said monitor to appear in the task bar of that monitor.

    I had this setup on the previous build, but can't remember for the life of me how I did it (No third party software)

    Hey.....I /just/ found something, using UltraMon 3.3.0, that will help with a step in the right direction. UltraMon 3.3.0 has the ability to hide the start menu on all secondary monitors. click here:

    UltraMon Features - Taskbar Extensions / Smart Taskbar

    It works. I am looking at my secondary monitor as I type this and the start menu is not showing. I am still working on finding something to remove the sys clock from the secondary taskbars. But, as mentioned, it /is/ a step in the right direction.
