Forums -> UltraMon™ -> Taskbar location problem

Hi. I have 4 displays under Windows 10 Pro x64. I installed Ultramon to check it out as I wanted software that could easily move windows between the displays. So far I love it.

However, I hit a big annoyance. My setup is one 1080p 22" LCD to the far left, a 32" 4K in the center, a 1080p 24" to the right in portrait and a 1080p 24" above the portrait one. I keep the taskbar on the center 32", as that is my primary. When I shut the monitors down then later turn them back on, the taskbar has moved to the portrait LCD to the right. I unlock taskbars and try to drag it back to primary, but it will not move. It only is fixable if I quit out of Ultramon. As soon as Ultramon is gone, I can move the taskbar back no problem.

The taskbar related settings in Ultramon are as follows:

General\Window Management\take taskbars into account etc etc (checked)
Taskbar Extensions\enable secondary (checked)
Taskbar Extensions\mode (standard)
Taskbar Extensions\remove start from secondary taskbars (checked)
Customization\disable/enable secondary taskbars (checked)

I'm going to try disabling any taskbar related stuff to see if it stops doing it, I'll let you know if it fixes it.

Just to follow up; disabling those taskbar related features fixed it. Kinda bummed that I can't use the smart taskbar, but at least it isn't forcing my taskbar to the wrong monitor now.

Secondary taskbars are handled by Windows on Windows 8 and later, does unchecking just the 'remove Start button' option fix the issue as well?

Sorry, kinda forgot about this post. That is already disabled, that's one of the first things I did after setting up multiple monitors.

It's been three weeks or so and so far, the problem has not reared its head again so I assume I'm good. Just had to disable those features in Ultramon. I can live with that ;)
