I'm using Windows 10 on my machine but also with multiple screens. But I noticed that my Task bar only shows up on my main screen. Can I have it on my secondary screens too? Specifically, I want the icons there.

For years, users have wondered why on earth Microsoft wouldn’t 
make the taskbar customizable and usable across multiple monitors. 
Luckily Windows 8 and 10 include a new feature that makes it much better. 

Here’s a quick look for those that haven’t already seen them.

The new Taskbar in Windows 8 (and Windows 10) finally spans multiple monitors, 
and can be customized so that the taskbar buttons on each monitor are the buttons 
for windows open on that monitor. You can also make both taskbars show all windows 
if you choose.

To access the new settings, head into Taskbar Properties by right-clicking 
on the Taskbar and choosing Properties. Once there, you’ll see the 
“Multiple displays” section at the bottom of the dialog, where you 
can quickly check the box to enable or disable showing the taskbar 
across displays.

The “Show taskbar buttons on” drop-down lets you choose where the buttons appear. 
For example, the screenshot at the beginning of this article was from the 
primary Taskbar, and this one is from the Taskbar on the second monitor:

Want to make bigger taskbar buttons on the second monitor? 
You can also change the “Buttons on other taskbars” setting.


It’s all very simple, and you’ve probably already come across this 
if you’ve spent more than a few minutes in Windows 8 or 10… but for 
those that haven’t, it’s great to know that Windows finally gives 
us a multi-monitor taskbar.
