On windows 7 how do I display my task bar on all of monitors (3) ?

I found the below instructions online:

Just right-click on the taskbar, head to Properties, and check the "Show Taskbar on All Displays" box. From there, you can tweak it to your liking—showing taskbar buttons on all taskbars, or only the monitor where the window is open

But this option does not seem to exist on my version of windows, is there a hidden setting or something obvious I am missing ?

If your Windows 7 and display driver are fully updated, then this feature is not available in standard Windows 7.

Try the free Dual Monitor Taskbar, which does Taskbar on the every monitor and more.

  • Ahh was hoping that wasn't the answer, I will check out the software later today. Thanks – PeterH Dec 12 '18 at 10:48

This feature is only available from Windows 8 and above. To use the feature with Windows 7 you need a third party app like DisplayFusion.

  • Commercial software. – harrymc Dec 12 '18 at 10:23
