After effects PC dual monitor file menu?
on Aug 11, 2016 at 2:19:27 pm

Hey guys,

I recently started working on a PC from a Mac and wondering if anyone knows a way for the file menu bar to show up on the top of the screen on both monitors in a dual monitor set up?

I Mac it's on both by default, but PC it's only showing up on my main monitor.

Maybe it's just a thing I need to get use to, but scrolling across two screens to access the menus getting old...

Thanks!

That's correct -- main monitor only for the AE main menu in Windows-Land. As one who made the move from Mac to Win some years ago, I'm here to say that you get used to it. It's no big deal.

There are only a handful of things you actually have to do via the menus. What are some of the things you're using the menus for? Maybe we can suggest another way of accomplishing the same thing which will get you out of the menus and speed up your work.
