is there any way to get the desktop to use a wallpaper and start bar that spans through both monitors on a dual display desktop with ATI catalyst drivers? ^_^

ati's multimonitor software is called hydravision... use that for most of your needs but I recommend an app like ultramon (please google :D am in class... can't do it right now) that will allow you to span the taskbar and gives you better overall control over both monitors and what is displayed...

I could never find the hydravision options for different wallpapers on different screens so I got ultramon on sazar's recommendation, pretty damned good if you ask me - you have to register it if you like it enoug to keep it though.

EDIT: its at www.realtimesoft.com

look for a prog caled ultramon http://www.realtimesoft.com/ultramon/

this program is awesome. this s directly from the site.

UltraMon is a utility for multi-monitor systems, designed to increase productivity and unlock the full potential of multiple monitors.
efficiently move windows and maximize windows across the desktop
manage more applications with the Smart Taskbar
control application positioning with UltraMon Shortcuts
multi-monitor support for desktop wallpapers and screen savers
mirror your main monitor to secondary monitors for a presentation]


i think it has a free tour. i personaly think its worth the money but i use dual alot.

... I use basic, unmodified Catalyst 4.1 drivers (doesnt matter what version you use) and a Radeon 9600xt... its pretty simple to use two different wallpapers(or one large one), all you have to do is make an HTML file with the two images beside one another(or just the single large one), and set that as the background - with that, ultramon and hydravision can do almost the same stuff


[edit] as for the start bar that spans both monitors, I just made a fake bar as part of the background image, look here, so it doesnt take too much[/edit]

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
