    Hi there,

    I've just bagged a pair of reconditioned by Dell P2310H from ebay. They arrived today and are really nice screens; however I'm unable to stretch the taskbar/superbar across both desktops so the start menu is on the right and the clock and tray is on the left.

    These are running with:

    2 x 470gtx
    windows ultimate 7 64bit

    Thanks in advance for help :D

    display fusion is very good I tested that for a while and it is worth its weight in gold, good stuff.

    Ultramon was very good for XP, haven't tried it on 7.
    I hear good things about Display Fusion though.

    I much prefer to have the taskbar vertical (on the left), with two monitors there's no shortage of horizontal pixels and I never use enough applications to take up the whole taskbar anyway. Though display fusion works well, if you want a really wide taskbar.

    thanks for everyone advice, you confirmed my subsequent research. Personally I'm blown away that this feature isnt native in windows!

    Almost every Windows version, Microsoft improves multiple monitor setups.
    However, development/improvements is very slow. I guess, it's a bit understandable as few has multiple display setup.
