Taskbar Organisation - Help!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP


I have 3 monitors, two 27" main monitors which I want my full taskbar to be displayed on and one 21" side monitor that I keep chats/calls open on. I'm wondering if I can have my main taskbar (with lots of pinned items) on my main monitor and the third monitor have either A. Only the tabs on that monitors B. Custom programs I can select (skype, teamspeak, discord, spotify etc) or if needs be C. All open programs

If you're using Windows 10, there's a lot of taskbar customization you can do that may be able to handle most of what you're looking for. I set mine up so the taskbar buttons only show up on the monitor the program is running on.


Otherwise you'll have to look for a third party app (if one of these even exists)

There are a few options when it comes to the taskbar, but easiest IMO is as above, to show programs that are running on that taskbar/monitor. I like to see everything personally, then I can swap tasks whichever monitor/desktop they are being shown on, just by clicking that task it switched to that desktop. I can't stand having to go to taskview etc to get to the running program I want to see.. just easier IMO.

Please quote my post, or put @paddy-stone if you want me to respond to you, I may not see your post otherwise.
