Can the taskbar clock and other notification icons (speaker, network, etc.) be re-located from the primary screen taskbar to the secondary screen? My setup has the primary screen on the lefthand monitor and the secondary screen on the righthand monitor and I'd like to move them.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks, GMan. That looks like it would do the trick, but....I'd like to do it without an after-market add-on if I could.

Probably can't though:(

Sigh....

I dunno. My 2nd screen broke on me so I only have been using 1 on Windows 8.

Other than that, you can simply change which monitor is the primary monitor easily. Right click desktop | Screen Resolution

You're welcome.

Geez, I must be getting old. Good suggestion, it looks like that just might do it for me.

That's 2 monitors together side by side to create that. When you take a screenshot, it doesn't put any line or marking in the middle as the bezels do in real life, so it appears as one very widescreen desktop.

As his specs show: "2 x 19" ViewSonic LCD's"

Ya know, now that I think about it, there probably is a huge market out there that would purchase a single monitor that was actually 2 monitors worth of space in one. For example: 32:10 or 32:9 aspect ratio, with drivers/software to allow it to be seen as 2 separate monitors.

Gamers would love it since the bezel in the middle would not exist and others would enjoy it for the same reason.

This would push the industry better than any touch! Are you listening hardware makers? Can I get like a .0001% royalty for my idea lol?

Yeah thats a pretty good idea like that.. that will turn out to be a really good stuff for developers and designers around the world. Those type monitors will work really good on Windows 8 CP n all.. Yep! Gamers will love those.. We can Run Two games side by side and Play without making a riot in our place.. lol.. Yep! +1 rep for Your thinking.. :)
