Synergy allows to share a keyboard and mouse across several computers. Basically, you install it on all your computers.
The one with the mouse and keyboard is the server, everything else is a client. You can configure the screen disposition and pass the mouse from a screen to the other by going over the edge.
Share keyboard and mouse:...
You can use Cursor Lock:
lets you define shortcuts to lock the cursor to the current screen/window
also lets you choose it to auto-lock when a certain program is running
runs on Windows
What you want to do (lock with a shortcut) is called User Mode in the program.
So, to set it up, go to User Mode > Lock Region: screen > Shortcuts and set your ...
You don't need special software
Win+Shift+Left arrow: Move window to the monitor on the left
Win+Shift+Right arrow: Move window to the monitor on the right
Also, Windows-P opens the display switcher:
Computer only is the default option–and the name says it all.
Duplicate clones your screen to a connected secondary display, monitor or projector.
Depending on which desktop you are using - I use KDE - the icon in the top left of the application window, (with the application icon on it), includes a menu item to allow you to select a specific screen, e.g:
or to a given, (or all), desktop if you have multiple desktops specified, e.g.:
You can also specify other options such as always on top, etc:
I have modified the original WindowPad source code to not resize windows when moving or changing monitor.
These are the steps:
Download from the link above and unzip.
To disable resizing of windows when moving edit \source\WindowPad.ahk to change (Windows Notepad is OK):

I found out that the current Catalyst Control Center has a function to switch between monitor configurations quickly through the Tray Menu. Works pretty well for me, but obviously this solution is limited to graphic cards from ATI.
It would be good to know what version of Windows you are using and how identical you need the taskbars to be. Windows 10 has this ability by default, although I'm not sure if it shows EVERYTHING the same on both bars (I can check tomorrow). Prior to Windows 7/10, I used to use UltraMon by Realtimesoft, for managing multiple monitors and windows and ...
You can use spacedesk:
gratis for personal use
requires the computer and the iPad to be in the same network (e.g., same Wi-Fi network)
also works for Android
good ratings on Play store and iOS App store but not many ratings.
Try installing picasa from google. Its an obsolete photo editing software that comes with a mighty photo screensaver. You can select folders from your computer and even rss-feeds. the photos will then be displayed on both monitors. works fine for me ;-)

I am using the commercial tool Ultramon, which is at ~40 USD for a single license.
display profiles with resolution, orientation, color depth, refresh rate, position
I works on Windows 7 and I found statements about "Windows 8 and later", but Windows 10 wasn't explicitly mentioned
Here's a screenshot from my PC (sorry, German)....
This is not exacly what you are looking for but it may help:
synergy: move your mouse from one computer to another
It's a VNC-based application that will allow you to use the keyboard and mouse of your "main" computer to control the current session of your secondary PC.
If you were using linux or Windows server on your main PC, you could run an extra ...
You can also use UltraMon (non-free, Windows, GUI) to set up a keyboard shortcut to move a window to the next or previous monitor.
As Jan said, Windows 7 has some native shortcuts, which I don't use because I bind Win to left mouse click:
Win + Shift + Arrow Left to move a window to the left monitor
Win + Shift + Arrow Right to move a window to the right ...
You can use DisplayFusion (non-free, works with Windows 7) to mirror the taskbar, and it will mirror the 'start' menu as well as the notification area, but it doesn't have the option to mirror the icons.
FYI DisplayFusion contains a few minor issues, and DisplayFusion can be used along with UltraMon (that's what I do to take the most of each one).
I think WindowPad only works on two monitors. I wrote an AHK script that should work on your monitor setup, but I can't replicate this setup so I have no means of testing it. Please let me know if there are any issues and I'll update it, or feel free to edit the answer yourself.
Win + Alt + Arrow: Move the active window to the monitor whose ...
I do not have that many monitors but did you ever try WinSplit Revolution? It is free and works well for at least 2 monitors.Well, it turns out it is being discontinued. You can still download it from CNET - just be aware of possible adware etc.
The developer of Winsplit Revolution recommended a paid program ($20).
You can use UltraMon's mirror feature (Windows, non-free): it does not shuffle the window organization (i.e. after using it the same windows will be on the same monitors) but take 10-15 seconds to turn on/off so it's a pis-aller:
This is a clumsy workaround using AutoHotKey in case you did not find a direct answer. You can use a script to retrace the steps of manually switching the layouts. The sequance may differ from system to system so I will list the instructions along with a sample script that works on mine:
Open the Screen Resolution window, and press (on the keyboard) the ...
