Overall Opinion: Like other examples of screen management software, UltraMon is mainly used to extend the utility of the Windows task bar to every screen connected to the system. The software also only shows you the windows or apps that are open within a particular desktop space on the task bar. This means you can have two apps running on two screens, and each screen's task bar will only show the app used in that screen. When used in its default format, UltraMon gives a task bar to each individual display, and those are limited to displaying whatever is active in that specific monitor. Other similar systems only duplicate the entire task bar, so every open app or window is visible in every display. UltraMon avoids this clutter with true multiscreen functionality. When you install the software, it will also add a small button to every window used for apps or the Explorer. This button is used to quickly move the window from one screen to another, and it takes advantage of advanced display tools to ensure that the window appears as it should in the new monitor even if display settings are different between the two screens. You can also use the software to display different screen-savers on each monitor or to use a single screensaver over several monitors. Another button is added to window title bars when you install UltraMon, and that button is designed to maximize a window such that it fills the entirety of your visible display across all monitors. This is great if you need the expanded desktop to use an especially complex or large app. You can also use the software to assign hotkeys to the features of your choice. For instance, if you constantly need to move apps between monitors, you can make that command a hotkey for easier access. You can create up to 25 hotkey combinations with UltraMon, and you can even use hotkeys to open or launch apps. Perhaps the best aspect of this feature is that you can use the software to create shortcuts for individual scripts. That means the software can create shortcuts for operations that are issued directly through the command line, which is quite rare for software of this type. You will be able to get the most out of your multi-monitor setup with UltraMon. The ability to separate monitors by their respective windows and apps is quite nice, and the powerful hotkey tools are sure to be useful. The software is a bit more costly than others in the field, but the small additional cost is well worth the utility of the software. The software is available in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions, so make sure you are using the right version.
