Stretch Taskbar across 2 displays?

Anyone know of a way to stretch the taskbar across two monitors? I am using two separate video cards (not a dual head or twinview system) so I am using XP's built in multi display support.

Yep. I can access both monitors just fine but the taskbar will not bridge both monitors. It would be nice at times to have it like this (in theory anyway). Just curious if there is a setting that does this.

Check monitor orientation

I haven't done this in a long time, so I could be wrong. I think the start menu will only extend if you have the monitors oriented (in the display properties) so that they are right next to each other. Then again, it may not be possible at all - the best you may be able to do is to create additional menus (like the address bar) and place them on the secondary display. You should also check the start menu properties & search on groups.google.com -- I'm sure that someone does this & that it's really easy.

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

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!
