Black Bar across Chrome or other applications

I have started having an issue where apps on my second screen have large swaths of black where the menu bar should be for say an MS Office app. this also carries over to Chrome etc. I thought that it was a resource issue with my taxing my laptop. However upon further testing, it only happens when Display Fusion is active. Additionally for the oddity, it is only happening on one monitor at a time. So I can take the window that looks like that, swap it to my primary monitor in this instance and it looks fine.

That's really strange! Could you send us a debug log for this issue?

  • On the DisplayFusion Settings > Troubleshooting tab, change the Logging drop-down to "L1: Log Minimal" and click Apply
  • Reproduce the issue and note the time so we'll know where to check in the log file
  • Click the "Export Info to File" button on the Settings > Troubleshooting tab
  • Reply with the file attached
  • Disable debug logging after sending the log

I've been having this same problem over the last couple of days and it's getting pretty annoying. That log file seems to have some private information - aren't there any other things I can try first? The issue only occurs on chrome/brave in maximized mode on the primary monitor.

Hi Stephen,

Is the issue only happening while DisplayFusion is running for you as well?
