Are you suggesting we get rid of the default windows taskbar completely?

I noticed when I updated that I had a DisplayFusion taskbar on both monitors, instead of just the one on my secondary monitor like I had before. I set it back up with just the secondary one by clicking the redundant additional Display Fusion one above my Windows default one on my primary monitor and clicking Position/Disabled to dismiss it, but then I got to thinking maybe that's your solution to the fact that you could never make the DisplayFusion one match the default Windows one? Are you suggesting users completely disable the Windows taskbar and replace it with the DisplayFusion one on both monitors? I fought with trying to make both these taskbars match for so many years, to no avail. Maybe I will try that. I hate having to re-set-up all my shortcuts that are in my Windows taskbar, but maybe it's worth it. I use Classic Start, and with Classic Start's Taskbar "Customize Taskbar" settings completely disabled, this is what Display Fusion's taskbar and my Windows taskbar look like. So terribly unmatched:

With Classic Start's "Customize Taskbar" settings enabled, I am able to make them match, fortunately:

But only with some effort (it doesn't change the color of the tray area or behind the windows start button on the main monitor which remains the Windows theme color, so that means tweaking inside the Windows theme file):

It would be nice to be able to have other colors in my taskbars sometimes without having to change my whole Windows theme. I guess I could humor the idea of disposing of the Windows taskbar on my main monitor and replacing it with the Display Fusion alternative.

Hello,

Strange, that definitely shouldn't be happening. Do you have "Show taskbar on all monitors" enabled in the advanced settings?

Thanks!

Yes. I want a taskbar on my secondary monitor. I don't want two on my primary. I was able to delete the duplicate one on the primary.

Hello,

If you want a taskbar on your second monitor, then you'll want to disable that setting.

Thanks!
