Beta 20 taskbar disappearing

10 times out of 10 if I right click on the main monitor desktop to bring up properties and select the "Screen Saver" tab, the DF taskbar disappears. I was checking to see if starting the screen saver was the problem, but I don't even get that far and the taskbar disappears. I suspect it's also going missing when the screen saver activates on it's own (which is when I tried testing it). Reboot with same problem.

If I toggle the "Multi-Monitor Taskbar" twice from the systray icon, it comes back but leaves again when I repeat the above (only when I select the "Screen Saver" tab).

Had no problem at all with beta 19... :|

Log bit attached...

This was due to a change with the full-screen detection code, related to games. Unfortunately, when the Display properties window is open it hosts the screensaver in that small frame and DisplayFusion gets a bit confused. I have released a small update to fix this, and you can find it here:

Thanks for finding the issue so quickly, I'm not sure how that one slipped through. :(

DF also lost the taskbar when the screensaver kicked in by it self. Looks like both issues work now... quick!

Sorry about that, it was a bit of an oversight on my part.

Jon, does DF stop attempting to change wallpaper when the screensaver is on?

DisplayFusion doesn't try to change the wallpaper when the screensaver is on, although you can control that by changing the "don't check for wallpaper changes while a fullscreen application is running" setting.

Beta 21 has just been released which takes care of this issue:
