    I run Dual Monitors on a Nvidia GeForce4 MX 440 with AGP8X.
    With the 45.23 driver from Nvidia. In the nView desktop manager
    on the Windows tab is a line "Allow taskbar to span Multiple monitors"
    When selected the windows taskbar span both monitors which is what I want.
    In all the 5x.xx drivers the line is grayed out and the windows taskbar
    is showed on only one monitor.
    Does anyone know why the 5x.xx driver don't seemed to support the
    taskbar spanning monitors.

    I will try Ultramon. I was just wondering why the spanning option worked
    in one driver and not in the updated driver

    Hi Jan
    Several of us have been asking this question over
    the past few months.

    nVidia has been totally silent on the matter.

    sigh ...

    I doubt you ever asked NVidia. Probably because they don't give you a way
    to do that. (Well, you could try asking your OEM who will most likely blow
    you off.) Mentioning it in this group does not count. I doubt that anyone
    from NVidia even reads these messages.

    That's correct, on both counts. They refer all questions to OEMs.

    However, they do offer release notes with new driver releases.
    It is the silence on this change in those notes, and the silence
    on this newsgroup about that change, that I was referring to.
    Silly them.
