Broken splits, ghost splits, overlapping taskbars, start menu offset

Not sure how to describe these issues too well.

With DisplayFusion managing my screens, I get a ton of small to moderate but frustrating issues.

My left monitor (3840x2160) seemingly has an invisible split or is being merged with my ultrawide monitor somehow (3440x1440). Windows only maximize to the top 3/4 of the monitor and while I can manually resize them, this obviously isn't ideal as it forces windowed states and is difficult to get into place. Borderless applications are especially an issue since they absolutely refuse to use the full monitor.

The bottom quarter is totally ignored, windows never maximize to that area.

Dragging a window in my 4k monitor causes the DisplayFusion shortcut button to be totally offset, being about 2000 pixels into my ultrawide. I don't use the button, but it might be a clue in what the issue is.

Task bars are often overlapping or don't appear at all. This might be related to the "Use these Features with Split Monitors" section of the settings, but I prefer to have one taskbar per monitor rather than per split.

The start menu often doesn't appear on certain monitors, or will appear far above the taskbar or cut off behind and below it.

I can deal with most of these issues but only being able to use 3/4 of a 4k monitor is a dealbreaker, as annoying as the rest of the issues are. I'd really appreciate some help with this as it's driving me crazy.

Hope this can help. I had to enable the ultrawide as my primary monitor for the splits issue to show up again. With the 4k monitor as my primary monitor the splits weren't working, but the invisible split was gone.

Hello,

Thanks for sending that over. It looks like there are some issues detecting your video card, which is likely what's causing these issues.

Could you download our test tool (https://www.binaryfortress.com/Data/Download/?DownloadID=495db9ad-a9fe-4bee-a23d-d9cf233a7b1b&Log=0) and send over the output in a text document?

Thanks!
