when i right click on right monitor it shows display fusions options, and it allows me to adjust the taskbar (transparity to 1)
When i right click on left monitor it only gives me these 8 options
toolbars
cascade windows
show windows stacked
show windows side by side
show the desktop
start task manager
lock the taskbar
properties.
It doesnt show me any of display fusions settings? Ideas please, I'd like to be ableto adjust both toolbars to be the same behaviorally
Thanks in advance

Sorry for the delay in responding, it sounds like you are right-clicking the Windows taskbar and seeing the standard Windows context menu. DisplayFusion adds additional taskbars, it doesn't replace the Windows taskbar. What setting are you trying to chance to get the appearance to match?

sorry for lack of experience not sure how to do quotes in your forum so...
"it sounds like you are right-clicking the Windows taskbar and seeing the standard Windows context menu. DisplayFusion adds additional taskbars, it doesn't replace the Windows taskbar."

Thats exactly what i was trying to do.
I really liked the trans-parity effect you offer, how it makes the transparency/taskbar opacity 0 until hovered upon and i wanted that on all monitors.

So basically there is no tweaking available on the default taskbar?!

That's correct, the DisplayFusion taskbar is only supplemental for the extra screens, and doesn't tweak the Windows taskbar.

However, you can enable the DisplayFusion taskbar on both monitors by enabling the "Taskbar: Show on all monitors" Advanced Setting and restarting DisplayFusion. You could then move your Windows taskbar to a different side (i.e. the top) and auto-hide it. If you do this, you'd want to right-click each DisplayFusion taskbar and navigate to Multi-Monitor Taskbar > Position> Bottom, to keep them from moving with the Windows taskbar.

Hope that helps!

Unfortunately the Windows taskbar can't be completely disabled, as DisplayFusion relies on it being there for the Start Menu and a couple of other functions to work correctly.
