How to remove the taskbar in Windows from second display

Using multiple monitors is becoming a more common thing these days.  If you are like me and use the second display mainly to load the browser you probably want as much viewing space as possible.  One of the first things that I always do after installing Windows on my desktop is remove the taskbar from the second display.

Here are the quick and easy steps in getting this done on Windows 8.1.

  1. Right click on the taskbar and select Properties
  2. On the Taskbar tab uncheck “Show taskbar on all displays”
  3. Click Apply and OK

At this point you should only see the taskbar on your main display.
