I'm looking for a program allowing Multi-Monitor Taskbars in Windows with the following features:

  • works Windows 7 (Windows 8 has it natively anyway)
  • supports at least 6 monitors
  • if I open a program through the start menu in monitor X, the program should open in monitor X
  • eats as little CPU as possible
  • has GUI
  • free is preferred
  • as responsive as possible
  • as bug-free as possible

DisplayFusion is pretty good but I'm looking for alternatives as I have some issues it. (Issue 1; Issue 2, Issue 3; and it is non-free)

    What issues do you have with Display Fusion? – aman207 Feb 27 '14 at 6:13

You could take a look at UltraMon by Realsoft. This meets and exceeds all of your requirements other than cost but there is a 30 day trial version available so you can test it out beforehand:

  • supports Windows 7 (32 and 64 bit)
  • supports every monitor detected by Windows
  • plethora of options to determine where windows launch
  • relatively light on resources
  • has a full GUI to configure it

There is also a tour showing and explaining each of the features.

Ultramon also provides the functionality you're requesting in your other question.
