I’ve been looking for the dual monitor utility that does exactly what I want it to do and this weekend I found it. It’s called Ultramon and I now consider it a must have utility for dual monitor users. It will be one of the first programs I install when I rebuild my computer every few weeks….oh wait…I’m not running Vista anymore. :-)
I love how it allows me to configure each monitor independently. As you can see, I’m able to use a picture as wallpaper on each monitor. But the killer feature I’ve been looking for is how it manages open programs in the task bar. An open program will show up on that monitor’s task bar. You can even move program to the other monitor from the task bar.
In short, Ultramon does what I’ve been looking for. It has a ton of other nifty features. The only downside? It’s not freeware.
