Add additional or multiple task bars to Windows

Hello,

Does anyone know of an app which enables you to add additional or multiple task bars to Windows (7)?

Say for example, you wanted to have a taskbar on all four sides of your screen — sort of like a picture frame — and then create custom buttons to perform various actions.

Has anyone ever seen something like that or know of a way it could be done?

Thanks

You cannot add another taskbar with native Windows 7. You can add Toolbars that sit in the taskbar (I do that) and you can stack icons to permit many icons on the taskbar (I do this as well). But there is only one taskbar.

I did a quick look and see no third party to do that. Taskbar is a fundamental part of the operating system.

If you multiple monitors, maybe Dual Monitor Taskbar.
http://sourceforge.net/projects/dualmonitortb/

•Taskbar on the every monitor
•Pinned programs
•Aero support
•Window manager
•Mirror mode

Some reviews say it works for 3 monitors, too.

Regrettably, sometimes the answer is that you can't do what you want.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

That sounds interesting. Can you post a screenshot to show what you are describing?

One way to stack is using the free http://alastria.com/software/7stacks/

Thanks. That looks like an interesting alternative. I also found a couple of other alternatives:

Stacking is not what your original post asked for.

My concern is that a solution that did not solve the original question will go into the archives as the Accepted Solution.
