I don't think that's possible. I had the same issue, and just made the win theme black so the windowed mode was not as noticable.

Is the windowed mode for a reason in particular? I just run fullscreen with the option "Black-out Desktop" unticked in the Graphics settings and I can use my lateral monitors just fine for ASN, Pro ATC, etc...

Really? They are connected to the same graphics card? I don't want to run in windowed mode at all since I'm used to full screen. Problem is when you want another side-by monitor for charts, ASN etc. When you full screen FSX/P3D on the main screen, the other turns black.

Yes all 3 monitors on a 970 GTX 4Gb, Surround mode is not even needed in this case, just a simple 3 screens configuration under Windows display settings.

I can't check in details as I'm at work right now but I'm pretty sure "Black-out Desktop" unticked is all that is needed to achieve this.

Yup. I run two monitors - one big one for main display and second for ASN, PLAN G Charts, etc. Although I urn SLI it was the same when I had just one video card. Use full screen and UNCHECK black out desktop.  you're good to go.

Well, it actually worked. I'm amazed, so thanks for the heads up. However sometimes, the windows task bar don't disappear when running P3D in full screen. I've found that it is no point "hiding" the task bar because P3D can in fact run full screen above it, but as I said, sometimes it doesn't work.

Is there an advantage running full screen as opposed to windowed mode?

Easy to try out by oneself. Some like it - some not.

Thanks for the info. I disliked that white border!

I think there is, I seem to get slightly better frame rates but it's hard to quantify.  I found that there is a pesky CTD caused by the dome light switch in the PMDG 777 that only occurs in window mode.

Why not just move the task bar to the second screen?

 

gb.

In the desktop right click taskbar and select autohide taskbar option, then go to your Nvida Control panel and select compatibility mode for Multiple GPU`s/Screens.

This has just ruined my P3D installation. DO NOT USE. Now all I get is a black screen and a CTD. Thanks.
