After upgrading to Win10, taskbar is covered by open windows.

Multi-Monitor Taskbars: Enabled
Taskbar mode: All taskbars show relevant windows
DisplayFusion Pro 9.5
Win10 Enterprise, 64-bit

When I drag an open window and position it so that it covers the taskbar, the taskbar is covered while dragging. If I release the window after dragging so that the window remains over the taskbar, the taskbar remains covered.

This only occurs for the DF taskbars on my 2nd and 3rd monitors. The main Windows taskbar does not behave this way. When I drag a window over the Windows taskbar, the Windows taskbar remains on top, while the dragging window passes behind it.

This only started after I upgraded to Win10 from Win7. I've searched the forums, but I haven't been able to find a solution yet. Please help?

I'm not able to reproduce this issue here. Could you attach a copy of your DisplayFusion Troubleshooting info?

Thanks! Everything looks ok there. Are all applications covering the taskbar, or only certain ones?

Seems like I experience it with all different kinds of applications. So far I've tried Chrome, IE, Excel, Outlook, Skype, OneNote, Excel, VLC, Adobe Reader, Notepad++.

Thanks! I had another look at the debug log and it looks like DisplayFusion is forcing the taskbar to the bottom because it thinks the Start menu is open. If you do a full reboot, does this issue occur right away, or only after the first time you open the Start menu?

Just tested. Happens immediately after a fresh boot, without ever opening the start menu.

Ok, that's really strange! Is your Start menu normal sized, or set to open full screen?

Had to look this one up, but it's not set to use full screen.

If you move all three taskbars to the bottom of the screen, does that make any difference?

Moving taskbar to the bottom seems to have corrected this issue.

Not sure if this helps, but before you suggested moving the taskbar to the bottom, occasionally when moving windows across the taskbar, the windows would appear behind the taskbar, as they should. I couldn't reproduce it reliably. I tried dragging different programs, topmost windows, 'underneath' windows, to/from different monitors, maximized/non-maximized windows. I couldn't reproduce it reliably one way or another.

Ok, thanks for confirming! When I have my taskbars on the left, all windows go under the taskbars, including the Windows taskbar on the Primary monitor.

To clarify, if I switch my taskbars back to the left side, the issue resurfaces, and dragged windows appear over the Displayfusion taskbars, but not the Windows taskbar.

Ah yep! I was getting mixed up here. I was able to reproduce that behaviour as well, and have added it to our list to fix up.

Thanks!
