    Drop down menus on multiple monitors?

    Is there any way to have the FILE/EDIT/BIN menus on the right hand monitor in a two monitor setup?  I know Premiere on Mac allows this, it seemed like a very helpful feature.

    What does file edit bin even mean in an MC?

    The drop-down menus that are a the top of Windows.  That you click on.  They rest on the left monitor or top left of a window, would be great to have them on both.  On OSX multi-monitor setup you can do so, not sure if you can on a Windows mahine.

    I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think you can.

    It's not an MC/Premiere thing, it's the way Windows and OSX handle the screen(s): in Windows the menu is tied to the program's window (!), in Mac OS the menu bar is "floating", and can be moved to any monitor You like, or even cloned in all the available monitors (default); it's a different window management, and there's nothing You can do about it, as You can't force Windows to behave like OSX.
