    Hello Universeal,

    Sorry, but unless a 3rd party program comes out that will do it, you can only have the taskbar display on the main display or all displays. The taskbar notification area icons and clock will only display on the main display taskbar.

    I'd have a look at Actual Multiple Monitors which does much of what you want on Win 7 for me.
    I haven't tried it on Win8 yet though.

    Universeal — the 3rd party app you want is DisplayFusion. Already highly evolved for Windows 8, with astounding depth and capability; it is even able to mirror 3rd party Start buttons such as Classic Shell's on secondary monitors. And its development team is superb at pushing the beta cycle and responding really helpfully and in detail to all reports and queries.

    Check it out — you will not be disappointed!
