    Taskbar does not appear any more on second of my two monitors

    by zlzpqx ·

    Tags: 

    I have Windows 10 on my PC. I have two monitors.

    I used to have taskbars on each of the two monitors, and the taskbars showed icons and names of websites open on the respective monitors.

    A couple of days ago, for whatever reason, a taskbar has started appearing only on one monitor — the “main” monitor — and that taskbar shows names of websites open on both monitors.

    Settings > Taskbars did not provide me a clue on how to restore the taskbar on the second — “secondary” monitor.”

    Please help.

    Thank you.

      Never forget that there is a setting in MS Windows that will hide the task bar automatically and I would be willing to bet that the update undid that option so you can see it now. Another possibility is that the Windows update also updated your video hardware settings/drivers. Glad it is resolved.

      Right click on the taskbar and select “Settings” to display the “Settings > Taskbar” menu. Let’s look at the multi-display settings that can be found here. If you want to display the taskbar on your second device, slide the “Show taskbar on all displays” option to “on” and the taskbar will appear on both devices.

      simple thing

      If the taskbar on your subsequent screen has vanished, there are a few potential causes. The most well-known is that the screen might have been disengaged or controlled off, making it undetectable to the working framework. In the event that the screen is as yet associated and turned on, you might have coincidentally changed the settings in the showcase choices and unintentionally covered up the taskbar. To show the taskbar, open the presentation choices and guarantee that the “Show taskbar on all showcases” choice is checked.
