Software Update: Actual Multiple Monitors 8.1.1

Actual Tools has released an update for version 8.1 of Actual Multiple Monitors. This program is intended for people who work with more than one monitor. Thus, it can put a taskbar and start button on every screen. Windows 8 used Classic Shell for this, but should no longer be included, although it still works fine with it. Actual Multiple Monitors can further create a background that spans all screens and adds buttons to move programs to another screen or open them across screens. The program can be tried for 30 days and a license costs $ 24.95. Version 8.1.1 includes a handful of bug fixes.


  • Sometimes running programs might crash after unloading Actual Multiple Monitors.

Fixed errors

  • Some kinds of windows stopped working correctly when extended by Actual Multiple Monitors (in particular, windows of the Investor/RT app).
  • Actual Taskbar might stop responding after clicking an icon in the notification area.
  • World of Tanks game client stopped responding after applying the Ignore Deactivation action.
  • Activating/deactivating a windowed Modern (Metro) app produced the “screen flip” animation if the “Animate windows when minimizing and maximizing” system option was enabled.
  • In some cases, active window might lose the focus when mouse hovered over the desktop if the “Activate on Mouse Hover” feature was active.
  • Some kinds of windows might not fit the Desktop Divider tiles in Aero visual themes.
