    Question Multi-Monitor Managment Software?

    I remember Ryan and gang talking about a couple of good pieces of software for multi-monitor managment in their podcast, but cannot find it now. I am going to be setting up a 2 monitor system in the next few weeks, and am looking to get more advanced with wallpaper, taskbar, and icons than what Win7 offers nativly

    Ultramon for moving programs from one to another.

    John's Background switcher for wallpaper.

    I just do the multi monitor wallpaper myself...

    The top-left corner of your primary display is 0,0 on your wallpaper...

    So in my case I have a 1920x1080 centre monitor (primary), a 1680x1050 right monitor, and a 1680x1050 left monitor.

    On my wallpaper -- I have |Center -> Right -> Left|

    Then it's just a matter of setting the wallpaper to "tiled".

    Done -- no extra programs required. Sure it's a lot of photoshop/gimp work... but it's generally pretty rare.

    ... that is of course if you want to avoid the programs for some reason... using a program to do that for you isn't that big of a deal.

    The program i listed lets you play them like a slideshow along with other nifty tricks. You can have separate backgrounds or one continuous one, its really handy.
