    Display time on multiple monitors?


    I have two monitors. Some of my programs can take the whole screen, covering up everything including the task bar. In W7, I just used the MS clock gadget which I moved to the second screen so I could always see the time. Now in W8.1 Update, I can see all the apps that I've pined to the active task bar, but I don't see the system tray with the time to the right. Doesn't have to be the task bar, of course -- could be a floating clock in the upper right or left or anywhere you like. Any one know of a way?

    Hello Greenspring,

    If you like, you could use OPTION THREE below to drag the taskbar w/clock to any screen you want to see it on instead.
