Configuring Trigger Rules for Universal Apps

Windows for Universal apps (aka Windows Store apps or Metro apps) don't run in separate processes the way that regular desktop apps do. They use a background process, leaving the windows themselves to run in a container process, (ApplicationFrameHost.exe). Setting up Trigger rules for Universal apps is therefore a slightly different process from regular desktop apps.
In this guide we'll use the Calendar app as an example.
  • Open the app and position it where you like. This is where the Trigger rule will position it when activated.
  • Right-click the DisplayFusion icon and click "Settings."
  • Select the "Triggers" tab, then enable the "Enable Triggers" checkbox.
  • Click the "Add" button.
  • Enable the "Process Filename" checkbox.
  • Cancel the "Select Application" window.
  • Type
    *ApplicationFrameHost.exe
    in the "Process Filename" text field.
  • Enable the "Window Text" checkbox.
  • In the "Window Text" text field, type the name of the Universal app. (e.g. "Calendar")
  • Below the "Actions" pane, click "Add," then select "Move Window to Specific Size and Location" from the dropdown.
  • Drag the blue target icon and drop it onto the app window.
  • Click "OK."
  • Click "OK" on the Edit Trigger and Triggers windows to save and apply the rule.
