    Right click on a clear area of ya desktop to bring up ya display properties then go to the setting tab and click on the 2nd monitor image (has a big "2" on it) and then tick the little box that says "Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor".

    Why would ya want the toolbar across both monitors for? :confused:

    I'm quite happy havin' it just on the main monitor but I do know that ya can move it to the 2nd monitor though I havn't a clue on how to get it across both at the same time. :shrug:

    the reason why i wanted to, is because the 2nd monitor looks completely empty in other words (BORING) plus it doesn't look it is part of the monitor if you can't see the taskbar across the bottom of it.

    and one more thing.... I have seen it on the pictures posted by one of the TT Members, on how they setup their work/gamestation that oone guy manages to stretch his toolbar to the second monitor. Don't worry i'm gonna go to the thread and ask the guy on how did he set up his, and if your interested i'll let you know :D

    :cheers: mate

    to extend the taskbar, use Ultramon. I have used it for my dual monitor setup, and it works very well. And afaik it is completely free!

    Hope that helps ya mate.
