Desktop Icon Profiles - Profiles w/ different # of icons?

6 discussion posts
Hello all,
I am not sure if what I am trying to do is possible with the software, or I am just not fully understanding it.
To give context, I currently have 3 displays on my system. 2 are monitors and one is a TV. When I want to do something on my PC from the couch, I have a monitor profile that disable the other 2 monitors and makes the TV the main display. This of course, makes a big jumble of the icons I had spread across my other 2 monitors on the TV. Now, when I am on my TV profile, I don't necessarily need some of the icons I have that are on my main profile, and would like to have some of those icons ONLY appear when I am on the desktop icon profile.
The basis of my question is, if you can have different "sets" of icons across your profiles. To further elaborate, if I switch to my TV monitor profile, can I have DisplayFusion load a different of icons that are not necessarily the same ones that are on my main desktop profile? I have tried playing around with it, and so far it seems that the profiles have to consist of the same icons. If I delete icons I don't need on my TV desktop icon profile, create a profile for it, and then switch back to desktop icons profile, those icons will just not appear anymore. If I start from making my TV icon profile, and then add more for my desktop one, then create a profile for that, those added icons just don't do anything when I switch back to the TV one.
I hope that all makes sense, any insight or guidance is appreciated!

Unfortunately this isn't possible, those icon profiles just adjust the position of the icons attached.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help!
