Default Dual Monitor setup

when setting up dual monitors how do you configure the task bar to extend to the second monitor? by default when you check "extend my desktop to this monitor" it does not put the task bar on the second monitor.

your start menu only extends to one monitor so set it on the monitor that you want it on the select ok.

you can't extend it unless you clone the desktop, which is not fun as it show the same thing as the first moniter in clone mode

You can't extend it. It's fixed. But don't worry, there is a program that lets you extend it to whichever window you want it and then some. I'll get the name and post it here for you to check out. I have it. It's really cool.
