Default How do I...

Does anyone know how I can get taskbars on both screens instead of just one?

(I have dual monitors.. If you didn't know)

Thanks a bunch.

I know that I can do it with the software that came with my video card (eVGA 6800GS). However, I have not found a way to do it with Windows alone...

Yeah... I use nVidia's tool for my dual desktops. If you have an nVidia card, there's a place in the dual monitor setup where you can select "Span". Sorry, I can't give you very specific instructions right now, I'm 2,000 miles away from home on a beach, far from my desktop
