Is the Windows8 start screen capable of spanning 2 monitors? This is not a question of multiple monitor support; this is a question of whether the Windows-8 start screen is able to display across 2 monitors, not as a mirrored display but as a additive display to the width of the single screen start screen. Or, does a app exist that I can purchase for it to do this?

try this tool: If it doesn't support it, ask the creator of the tool if it is possible to add. – magicandre1981 Dec 31 '12 at 6:37

Unfortunately not. Windows 8 new UI only runs on the primary display. You cannot make it "expand" to additional monitors.
