Is there a way to get the "Start" Button and tool bar to stretch across two monitors if you have a dual monitor set up?  I know that I can drag the tool bar back and forth between both monitors... but I would like to know if there is a way I can get it to stretch across both monitors.. to where the Start Button is on the left side.. and the clock, speaker icon, etc.. is on the right monitor?

If you are using Nview you can set up a profile in the properties.  With this profile you can do almost anything.

I am using Windows 2000 operating system... and my adapter type is a 3D Labs Wildcat III 6110.  Will the hydravision or nview work on this?

IF you look at the manuel here:

http://www.3dlabs.com/support/manuals/Wildcat%20III_6210_6110(eng).pdf



I can see that there is a config wizard.  i think that you might want to go through this wizard and see if gives you what you want.  The manuel does not explain dual monitors very well, which is very stupid considering the manufacturer of the card.
