    So I decided to try dual monitors, but I'm having a few problems:

    1. How do I add my icons to the first monitor while still keeping them on the second? I tried copy/paste, but it doesn't support icons with the same name.

    2. I downloaded Ultramon, and it let me add another taskbar, but not the start menu, the icons next to it, and the clock and the icons next to it.

    3. How do I make it so games won't minimize when I use the other monitor?

    Oh yea, Ultramon only has a 30 day trial period. Is there anyway to do this without it, or are there any other programs?

    Uh, bump. It's been 30 days and the trial has now run out. At this time my only concern getting a second toolbar, although I no longer care about the start menu, clock, ect.

    Yea, I know this is a rather large bump, but I figured I could save time by just updating this topic, besides, it's not like this topic is dead from this point on.

    Try this ..
    Create shortcuts to your Icons .. and place them in a new folder.
    and/or .. COPY your existing shortcuts to this folder.

    Then using a Click n Drag ... drag this folder off the screen to the right, top or bottom wall of you right screen.
    Then set the new toolbar to auto hide if you want.

    Thanks, but I was hoping for a more standard toolbar.
