Smart Taskbar

If you often have multiple applications open at the same time, the Smart Taskbar will help you manage them efficiently, by adding additional taskbars for each secondary monitor.

You can choose between two modes:

  • Standard: each taskbar only shows applications from the monitor it is on, so you won't have to search for an application after activating it. If you move an application to a different monitor, its taskbar button will be moved to the corresponding taskbar

  • Mirror: each taskbar shows all tasks, allowing you to quickly switch tasks on any monitor

UltraMon does not replace the Windows taskbar, it simply adds one or more additional taskbars. For example, you can use the Windows taskbar on the primary monitor, and UltraMon taskbars on your secondary monitors.

Right-clicking the taskbar lets you adjust the settings.

You can also add standard toolbars to the UltraMon taskbar (not all are compatible though), the screenshot on the left shows UltraMon with a True Launch Bar toolbar added.

Below is a screenshot of the Smart Taskbar running in standard mode on a 2-monitor system, on the left monitor the Windows taskbar, on the right monitor an UltraMon taskbar. There are two applications running on each monitor. Click the image for a full-size screenshot.

If you have enabled the custom window menu commands, you can right-click a task's button and move it to a different monitor directly, without having to switch to the application first:
