How to Recover Missing Smart Taskbar in UltraMon

Obscure one this, but a good opportunity to sing the praises of UltraMon, a Windows product that adds some very useful features if you’re using more than one screen.

One of the features is adding a taskbar—the bit at the bottom of the screen in Windows—to the second or third monitor, making it easier to organise your programs and stuff.

But it does go missing in action sometimes, and reinstalling the software won’t always solve the problem. Here, from the product’s own support page, is how to fix it.

Check you’ve enabled it in the system tray menu:


If it’s still not showing up, close UltraMon (UltraMon menu > Close)

Open regedit.exe, the registry editor


Find the registry key ‘HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Realtime Soft\UltraMon\Smart Taskbar’ and delete it:


Close the Registry.

Restart UltraMon using the UltraMon icon in Start menu > Programs

The Smart Taskbar should now be visible.
