Can DisplayFusion conflict with Start11?

Oatmeal's profile on WallpaperFusion.com
I'm trying to figure out why I'm having issues using Start11 (v 1.01) and thought I'd ask if there could be conflicts with DisplayFusion (latest version). (windows 11, latest build)

Attached is a screenshot of the problems, could the second two problems (mouse hover and taskbar transparency) be caused by running these two pieces of software at the same time? If so, are there any advanced settings I can change to resolve this?

Thanks

Hello,

There certainly could be conflicts. We currently haven't added in support for Start11, but we do have it open as a feature request, so I've added your vote to it. We'll be sure to let you know if we have any news on it going forward.

Thanks!

Definitely do NOT play well together, especially after the release of Start11 v1.2 today.

Please add me to the 'fixit' list

The solution I found was to uninstall start 11 and get a refund.

Could be more difficult for stardock to do this under Windows 11 but I gave up.

I tried Start11 when it was in beta. I'd enjoyed Start10 on Windows 10, but Start11 was lacking. I now use [URL=https://www.startallback.com]StartAllBack[/URL] and am pretty happy with it.

Thanks for that, Kevin. Hadn't heard of StartAllBack, just downloaded and installed, seems to work well. Bye, Start11...

The last beta of Start11 I tried had too many restrictions for me. With a 48" primary monitor, having everything centered was actually nice and Microsoft sold me on it. But you can't have expanded app buttons and centered everything at the same time. It was a deal breaker to have to move my mouse cursor literally two feet to the left in order to click the Start button. I know DF can't do this either, but it isn't handling my 48" screen.

I currently use ExplorerPatcher which gives me the Windows 10 taskbar and Windows 10 Start Menu, plus lets me center the Start button and expanded app buttons at the same time. I have everything from Windows 10 plus the *one* thing I liked from Windows 11.

Please add my vote for updating DF to work better with Start11
DF worked fine with Start10, so I hope it is as simple as updating some window class name or something that Start11 is using.

Please add my vote to this. I'm in a bit of a quandary with a new system coming in (with Win10) and a large monitor. I'd like to use DF and go immediately to Win11, but I use Start11. So I need to either delay the move to Win11 and install Start10 and DF, or hold off on trying DF until you support Start11.
Can you give any hint as to when the issue with Start11 will be fixed?

Have to say I took the advice of Kevin Scharnhorst and went to StartAllBack. Not sure I even want to go back to Start11 now. StartAllBack does everything I want/need.

@DFox: We're planning to look at it for DisplayFusion 10.0. We will definitely post an update when we have news on it.

How about creating an in-house solution called StartFusion? Even has a cool ominous name and it's not like you don't have enough to work on right?
