DF beta 16 CPU usage on Windows 10x64. 21H2 (OS Build 19004.1706) continues to be much more active that Beta 9 or 9.9. I have attached a Process Explorer/Snagit video to show the activity on a 1 second cycle for Beta 16.

Also attached is Beta 9 video of the CPU usage

Hello,

Can you run through the DisplayFusion Settings window on beta 16 and disable some of the main settings (Titlebar buttons, Wallpapers, Multi-Monitor taskbars, etc.) and see if anything in particular still causes a drop in usage?

Thanks!

I disabled the 2 taskbars on one split DF monitor and 1 taskbar and the second split DF monitor. This appears to have dropped the CPU usage by 0.2-0.3 which makes the overall usage "more acceptable", but still not as efficient as Beta 9.

Ok, thanks for trying that out. We'll keep cracking away at this.
