UltraMon has been abandoned?

UltraMon wanted to buy the full version but the last version released was in 2018

Not really, but 3.4.1 still works fine on Windows 10 version 21H2 and also Windows 11 from what I've seen so far.

There will be a new release later this year.

Will this new version support different screen savers on different multiple monitors?

If, not, I'll be moving to something else.

I've been using and supporting ultramon for more than a decade, this feature is way overdue.

Do you mean slideshows, with each monitor showing a different slideshow?

There's no built-in support for this, and the Photos screen saver included with Windows doesn't work correctly with UltraMon. Otherwise you can run a different screen saver on each monitor via UltraMon.

To run multiple slideshows I would recommend something like gPhotoShow.

we are already at the end of 2022 and no version is being released and I almost bought it when he said there would be one in 2021

The last version 3.4.1 do not work on Windows 10 2H22, the software stop immediately before run.

What's the error message you get? Works fine for me on Windows 10 version 22H2.

Due to a failed bios-upgrade I made an unplanned move to Windows 11. I get the impression that not all settings in UltraMon are maintained well. After a Windows update UltraMon had forgotten about preference for a separate taskbar on the second monitor.

Christian Studer   2022-12-15 16:00
UltraMon can change taskbar settings, but doesn't enforce them, if another application or Windows changes a setting you'll need to change it back manually.

Any plans for a new version of UltraMon? Thnx

After a Windows 11 update, UltraMon does NOT hide start button on the second monitorĀ“s taskbar. Any fix?

Christian Studer   2023-01-14 04:06
This doesn't work with 3.4.1, I'll look into this for the next release, but am not sure yet if a fix is possible.

Waiting to see if ultramon releases a Windows 11-compatible version.

I would be OK with it being a new release and requiring an upgrade. As it is, it seems like a defunct software product.

It already works with with windows 11, what are you talking about, there's no really big difference between 10 or 11. Unlike trying to compare XP to 8 there are differences there. But with the price being so high, I can see why they've died. Time to lower prices or kiss it all goodbye.

I also have a paid version of Ultramon from years ago. I absolutely love it. It still amazes me that Microsoft still hasn't caught up with proper multi-monitor management in Windows.

But to report, it's correct that the "remove Start Button from secondary taskbars" no longer works in Windows 11. This worked beautifully in Windows 10.

Looking forward to a Windows 11 update.

Shame... I think Ultrmon is the best one around...I too am on windows 11... It would be good to have a fresh Win11 version for sure.... Im in for a new licence if need be....Let me know when its built

I would say that with no update to the software since 2018, and there being several problems with the software working on Windows 11, we can safely say that it has been abandoned. So much so that I have had to go find a different software for my monitor management needs. Wish I could have continued to use this, but I needed something that worked and couldn't wait for them to figure it our. Sorry!!
