Forums -> UltraMon™ -> taskbar auhide only on secondary monitor (Win 10)
crmb   2024-01-14 16:35
With windows 7 while using the "smart taskbar" (on secondary monitors) it was possible to set autohide only to a specific sidebar.
Is there a way to do this with win10 ?

UltraMon doesn't support this, and Windows itself always hides all taskbars if the autohide option is enabled.

I tried this :

- Disabled windows taskbar on others monitors
- Then launched UltraMon with Win 7 compatibility mode

and it actually works. I get the Ultramon smart-bar back !

The problem is that with compatibility mode it breaks the multiple wallpapers (there are not displayed properly).

Can't we have an option to use ultramon smart bar when the windows additional taskbar are disabled ? (without compatibility mode)

You can enable Win7 mode for the UltraMon taskbar, but this isn't supported and may not work correctly, and also may no longer be available in a future release.

To do this, run regedit.exe and go to the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Realtime Soft\UltraMon\<version>, then create a new DWORD value named UmTbarWin7LegacyMode and set it to 1.
