I'm using the 64-bit trial version of Actual Multiple Monitors, v8.14.3.0 under 64-bit Windows 10 Pro 1909. I love that it will duplicate the system tray on both of my monitors, which is a rare feature. But I will only buy it if I can find a way to duplicate the entire task bar on both.

It seems likely that such a powerful tool can do this, but I can't figure out how. Does anyone know?


Thanks!

Martin,

Thank you for your question.

If I understand you right then you should select the Mirror option in the Mode group.

You can also switch the Actual Taskbar's mode (as well as many other related options) in the context menu.

Thank you, Alex! Those settings were necessary but insufficient. To get what I wanted, I also had to go into PC Settings -> Personalization -> Taskbar ->

   Multiple displays: ON
   Show taskbar buttons on: All taskbars

...

Wait. That's not right either. Let me work on it some more...

Well, I can't seem to get what I want, which is a completely mirrored / duplicated taskbar, which must include the system tray icons AND the regular tray icons. So on my system I want to see the attached image duplicated at the bottom of BOTH monitors.

But try as I might, I can't get both the system tray and the tray icons on both displays. If I used AMM alone, I can get either the system tray -OR- the regular taskbar on the second monitor, but not both. If I do it this way, it seems that AMM turns off the PC Settings ... Taskbar. If I then go into PC Settings as described just above and enable those settings, I can then get the regular taskbar duplicated on both, but the second monitor will not show the system tray.

I'm stumped. I would have imagined that the designer(s) would anticipate that a lot of people would like that setup, so I'm still guessing that there's a way. I purchased a license to see if that made any difference, but it did not.

What should I try next, please?

Helo, Martin

I don't really understand what part of the system taskbar on the secondary monitor you need that is not available on the AMM taskbar.

What do you mean by "system tray icons" and "regular tray icons"? Do you refer to the icons like volume and network as "system" icons and to the application icons as "regular"?

Both "volume etc. icons" and application icons should be duplicated on the AMM taskbar once you check the "Show the notification area" in the context menu of the taskbar (right click on the free area of the taskbar > Taskbar Parts > Show the notification area).

If the option is enabled and the AMM notification area looks different than the system taskbar's then send us a screenshot depicting the differences between them.

Or do you mean you want the pinned taskbar icons to be automatically duplicated to the AMM taskbar?


Best regards.
