Anyone got an idea how to extend display on windows 8 without the toolbar?

It works initially but as soon as I click on toolbar on screen 1 it displays on screen 2. This is not the desired behaviour as I'd prefer screen 2 to just be an extended display without the toolbar.

Image showing the two displays: I blured the icons

Right click on Taskbar, select Properties, under Multiple displays in the Taskbar tab remove the Show taskbar on all displays selection. Now you have no taskbar on extended displays.
