  1. If you want to get highest result from your multi-monitor configuration, you need to use the additional software for that.

    My personal recommendation is Actual Multiple Monitors (http://www.actualtools.com/multiplemonitors/). It is a most powerful utility among others and it works fine under Windows 7.

    Actual Multiple Monitors adds taskbar to second display and the second taskbar has all features of main taskbar like Start button and tray area with notification icons. Even more, it has Pin to Taskbar feature of Windows 7.

    Actual Multiple Monitors also has new window controls specially designed for a work with multiple monitors: additional button in each window’s title bar to move a window instantly to any monitor or maximize it to entire desktop.
