This is one review I have really been looking forward to write. We have written about multi monitor setup on several occasions here at www.mintywhite.com, and this time we really got a treat for you. There are many programs that allow you to take full control over your multi monitor setup. Like the “move between monitors”-buttons, stretching the same wallpaper over several monitors, having different wallpapers on each monitor etc. Actual Multiple Monitors, takes it not just one step further, but a giant leap…

Multi Monitor Taskbar

Many freeware programs bring a taskbar (of sorts) to your multi monitors. But they don’t always, look, feel or function like the original. Actual Multiple Monitors (AMM) have done what I would expect from Microsoft. Their taskbar doesn’t just look like a taskbar, it IS a taskbar, with its own Start Orb Button, and functioning Start Menu. They have even replicated the Tray in the right corner.

Every function you are custom to have on the Windows Taskbar is there: Aero peek, Thumbnail Preview, Pin to taskbar, Window Grouping, Right Click Functions etc.  Just Looking at my dual setup you cannot see which is my main monitor and which is not.

Control the Monitors

From its Taskbar Tray Icon you can directly control which monitor is your primary, enable or disable the different monitors,  save different profiles for different setups. You don’t have to do this from the Windows Control panel any longer. You can also ask Actual Multiple Monitors to save or restore desktop icon placements.

Another cool feature worth mentioning is the Alt+Tab function, that works independently for each monitor.

Set which monitor each application should launch in

A Truly great feature is the ability to choose which monitor you would like to launch your applications in. For instance, if you want a certain program to always use a certain monitor, you can create a rule that does that.

You can choose the correct screen by drag-and-drop, or by name, or assign to the screen having mouse pointer focus.

Much more…

This and a whole lot more, is what you get. To read more about AMM, you can go here.

Wish list

If I were to wish for something, it would be to have all Window Settings from the Control Panel directly available in the Right-Click menu. Other than that I’m truly amazed and satisfied with the program, just as it is.

Don’t just take my word for it, Download and try….

    Have you tried UltraMon?

  2. Thomas_mintywhite says:

    Yes I have been using UltraMon for the last year.
    It too is a great mulitmonitor software, but the Taskbar option and window control in AMM is what now makes it my program of choice.

    Thank you, I will give this a try then 8D
