Multi Display Taskbar for Win 8.1

    Question

  • Hi

    so.. i have 2 monitor on my pc and enabled multi display taskbar.

    but is there a way to put time and other stuff like the main monitor's task bar has? like copy exactly same as other on, not just window buttona and opened windows?

    and also adding tool bar onto it would be be nice too.

  • Got it, I don't think you can do that on extended task bars.

  • sorry i must have misunderstood you.

    when you said "Or just a mirror of the orignal screen?" I thought u were talking about taskbar.

    my screen is not duplicate but extanded. and each screen has taskbar.

    adn other link is for wireless... anyhow I just need to know how to add tool bars and time/date on my second screen.
