I don't think I have ever seen that. My son runs a dual monitor setup and the task bar is only on the main monitor.

That is what I had for a long time with a dual setup on XP. If there is a way I would sure love to know...

Check out Ultramon, I think it's what you're looking for.

I did about 5 min of Googe research for you and most people agree that this is not a feature in windows 7. You need a 3rd party application called UltraMon....check it out

UltraMon is not compatible with Windows 7. When I run in compatibility mode with Xp or Vista, still doesn't work.

You're probably out of luck then, since W7 is still an RC, I don't see people developing software for it until it comes out.

Are you referring to a virtual desktop? I'm not sure about Windows 7, but most graphics card manufacturers included this as a feature in their software package.

Those are really glorified quick launches. Not very useful at all.
