Win 11
Those tiny icons in the bottom right of the Taskbar next to the clock?

The problem I have is that I use dual screens, and with Win11 those are absent on the second screen. This is a real nuisance. I often have an app on the primary screen that I is difficult to interrupt so I can't access those icons. I really need them on the second screen. Window 10 used to have them there. In other words, it completely duplicated the Taskbar on the second screen. Is there any app that does that?

Here's what I was able to find out. Basically, the taskbar may be enabled on all monitors, at the same time, for the 'notification area', it will only appear to the primary display.

Apparently, MS decided that the System tray will "only" show on the primary monitor.

If it was me, I would make shortcuts for whatever was in the System Tray that I would need on the 2nd monitor.




This may or may not be helpful for you...




If you right click on your Desktop and choose: New > Shortcut ...and paste one of these CLSID key shortcuts in there...
Then give it it's common name. It will create a shortcut to that item, like so....

Sound ----> explorer "shell:::{F2DDFC82-8F12-4CDD-B7DC-D4FE1425AA4D}"

With a little creative shortcut-ing, you should be able to generate shortcuts for "Windows" things in the System tray.
Obviously creating shortcuts for 3rd party things is a lot easier.

I am looking in to that, but I am not sure that it can do it. The problem is that it is an application, minimized in the notification area. I am not sure there is any way to "get at it" without actually clicking on the icon on the taskbar.

Which app are we talking about? It kind of hard to... guess.
If we knew what the app was, we may be able to offer other suggestions. :-)



For example, I use TranslucentTB (to make my Taskbar clear), but it installs direct from the MS Store.
And MS doesn't mention, where it installed it.
It also runs minimized in the System Tray overflow area.
But REVO Uninstaller (free) has an option to show the "Install location"

And that information allows me to find the executable file, and create a shortcut from there...

Try StartAllBack as @Edwin mentioned.
If that doesn't do what you want... you can always use the "shortcut method". :-)

No, it wasn't.
I posted a Windows 10 screenshot so you could see that the system tray was only shown on the main display in Windows 10.

I suggest you follow Edwin's advice in post #4 if that utility achieves what you want. Perhaps you used that utility in Windows 10 as well.
