    my second monitor does not display taskbar tray icons?


    I mean the bunch of little system icons in the bottom right. the action center is missing as well. I've never had this issue, on my other PC the taskbar is perfectly duplicated.

    I am on w10 pro 1909. I have the "show taskbar on all monitors" enabled. I see no option for the little system icons. every other PC I've used multiple monitors on simply had them there by default

  4. my second monitor does not display taskbar tray icons?

    Taskbar on second monitor

    Hi all,

    I've got a Surface 4 Pro and am having an issue where the taskbar is showing on the secondary monitor. My external monitor is designated as the 'main display' and is to the left of the Surface. The desktop is extended onto the external monitor.

    It's easy enough to drag the taskbar over but I can't get it to stay.

    Thinks I've tried(that didn't work):

    • Lock the taskbar.
    • Turn off the 'Show taskbar on all displays' option
    • 'Auto hide' option has no effect.
    • Setting the Surface display as the primary, rebooting, setting the external monitor as primary

    Any ideas?
