Can new Position Profile minimize other windows?

FrankTR's profile on WallpaperFusion.com
I'm trying to set up a few Windows Position Profiles and it seems to work OK.
But there is one thing missing or, more probably, I haven't found out how to set up.

I want all programs that are not part of the position profile to become minimized. Is there an option to do that?

There isn't a way to do that at the moment, no. We've added this to our feature request list and we'll be sure to let you know if/when we're able to implement it.

Thanks!

Thanks for the feedback, Keith.

I made an AutoHotKey-script that helps me do the action I wanted.

Code



I set the shortcuts in DisplayFusion to be Ctrl+Win+Alt+NumPad1/3.
Then in AutoHotKey I use the shortcuts Ctrl+Alt+NumPad1/3 to first send a Win+D to minimize all programs and then send the correct shortcut to DisplayFusion.

It sort of works, but not 100% perfect, so would be nice if this could be implemented directly in DisplayFusion.

Thanks for sharing that workaround! It clued me in that you could actually implement that in DisplayFusion as well using a Scripted Function.

I knew about the scripting in DisplayFusion, but haven't looked into it yet, so figured I'd fix it quicker in AHK.

But now I'll for sure look into DFs scripting functionality.

So this is exactly what I need but for some reason it's not loading the profile for me.
I have a profile called "calls" which works perfectly when I load it from the menu (or set it up as the click option), but I need to minimise everything first..

I've tried:

Code


and:

Code


Neither actually load everything... but the minimise is working fine!

I've also tried adding waits in there but no joy so far. Anyone any ideas?

Hello,

If you have that line to load your window position profile by itself, in a separate script, does it work okay?

Thanks!

Oddly enough, that's something I never thought to test. It did lead me down the right path though!

Running just the profile worked fine
Turns out I needed a longer wait.

Putting a 2000ms wait in between the minimise & profile load got it!

Thanks!
