With Windows 10, is it possible to have the clock and Volume-Adjust-Icon on all monitors in a multi-monitor setup?

    Would showing the entire taskbar on all monitors be suitable for your requirement? – Jonno Feb 1 '16 at 5:28
  • Yes, as long as each taskbar is complete with clock and everything you'd expect to see if you had only one monitor, but on all monitors. – LonnieBest Feb 1 '16 at 5:30

    Found a potential duplicate question - aimed at Windows 8 though, not sure if anything has changed in Windows 10 in this regard. – Jonno Feb 1 '16 at 5:31
  • You could also look at this but it will require third party software, and only seems to include the clock, not the other notification icons. – Jonno Feb 1 '16 at 5:33

    I guess I'll stick with Ubuntu 16.04.4, which does this by default. Thanks Ramhound. – LonnieBest Apr 26 '18 at 13:27

As of Windows 10 version 1803 this still seems not possible. The clock will now by default display on all monitors, but the notification icons (such as the volume control mentioned in the question) only show on your "Main Display".

The only options currently available are (a) switching your "Main Display", or (b) using third party software.

  • Could you recommend a third party software that offers this option? – Swen Sep 25 '19 at 22:16
  • @Swen I recommend asking a question on softwarerecs.stackexchange.com – Jeroen Sep 26 '19 at 6:49
  • Ended up here because my setup requires my least-visible monitor to me the primary, because its a touch screen and the touch input gets applied to the main display (setting any other monitor as primary means that touch input is relative to that display; i.e. impossible to use). :( – Draco18s no longer trusts SE Oct 10 '19 at 19:03

Although I have been unable to show the system tray on all monitors, you are able to move the main taskbar and system tray to another monitor. You must unlock the taskbar and then drag it over to the monitor you want it displayed on.

we could show taskbar on all monitor. So that you could see the clock and use volume on multiple monitor. I referred link: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/3899-hide-show-taskbar-multiple-displays-windows-10-a.html
