Maxthon Icon does not change taskbars when using Dual Monitor Taskbar


Recommended Posts

The application Dual Monitor Taskbar adds a taskbar to a second monitor in Windows 7. The taskbar icons for most running apps will move to the second taskbar when I move the app to my second monitor. Maxthon does not do this, so if I use Maxthon on my second monitor, the taskbar icon stays on the taskbar on my first monitor.

Since many other applications do switch taskbars correctly, I assume this is something in Maxthon's code. I haven't tested it with Windows 8, which has a built-in second taskbar.

Can anyone confirm this behavior and tell me if it's something that Maxthon can correct?

Thanks!

It looks like someone already reported this issue to them, but the Dual Monitor Taskbar does not seem to have had any support for over a year and I think it's an abandoned project.

It does look like whoever reported the bug knows more about the issue than I do. To quote from the bug report "The reason is Maxthon window has no WS_SYSMENU style." Is this something Maxthon can add to fix this issue?
