Configure trigger for windows terminal

jdubs' profile on WallpaperFusion.com
I've tried the suggestions in https://www.displayfusion.com/Discussions/View/configuring-trigger-rules-for-universal-apps/?ID=36119d2c-9928-424c-8cfb-8a60d0e60d69, but when i do start>run>wt, it doesnt follow the trigger/function.

Any hints?

I tried using the window info from the new windows profile box, but that info doesnt work, either.

Thanks,

Hello,

What do you have set as the "Window Text" in your trigger?

Thanks!

"pwsh"

Hello,

Could you try to disable the filename from the trigger, and set a delay as well? Lets start with a delay of 2000ms, and go from there.

Let me know how that works!

The delay is needed because the Windows Terminal app sets the window text some time after the window itself is created. So without the delay, the window gets created, DF checks the window text right away, but it's not set, so the trigger doesn't match.

See attachment
Also, i've configured windows terminal to use the 'name' of 'pwsh'. which is what DF is picking up.

from wt settings.json:

It works, thanks.

In my environment, a wait timer of 500 seems sufficient.

Is there a way to set the task bar up with the delay? it can't seem to open it to the appropriate monitor.

@Troy: DisplayFusion can't move the taskbar with Trigger rules. Is it the Windows taskbar that's on the wrong monitor?
