A great little program to add a taskbar to additional monitors (something Windows should do anyway).

Usefull! Adds a taskbar to secondmonitor, and a button on each window to move it between monitors
Genuine version, not a fake, caused immediate popup ads for Sony. Simply put, it's adware garbage.
Harmless Program to extend the Windows Taskbar over 2+ Monitors.
