Ubuntu – Ubuntu 18: Top bar for all monitors


I just installed Ubuntu 18. Since the top bar is only on the primary monitor, I can't use the mouse to grab and move my Chrome window (the top of the screen looks like below). Trying to do so results in grabbing a single tab and opening it in a new window.

Is there a way around this? Ideally, I'd like to have the top bar across all screens. Another obvious disadvantage of only having the top bar on one screen is that the window menu of any window, not just Chrome, is displayed on the left upper corner of my left screen even when the window is in the lower right corner of the right screen.

You can use a Gnome Shell extension, such as Multi Monitors, to add the top bar on the second monitor.
