Downloaded latest beta for Windows 11, but it doesn't allow access to settings by right-clicking in the taskbar, and no icon appears in the taskbar except for the DF application itself (but clicking or right-clicking on it does nothing). Task manager shows that DF is running along with the DF host service.

Is there a new command sequence or hotkey combo that is used to bring up the settings?

I finally got settings to appear after reinstalling a couple of times. But it looks like Taskbar behavior is still incorrect, when the option to show all taskbars on all windows is chosen. All windows show up only on the primary monitor, only relevant windows on the other monitors.

Here is the attached file - all taskbars should be on all displays, but only on main window, only relevant windows on other displays

Having related issues. Taskbar works after starting windows, but after a time stops working altogether. Right click on taskbar doesn't work.
Right click on app icon does nothing
Click on start button does nothing.
Right click on start button does nothing
Basically the DF taskbar does not work except to display icons.
Windows taskbar seems to work ok.

I was able reset all taskbars to get it to work for awhile.

I have installed DF 11 Beta 1 for now.

@Robert62723 Thanks for sending that over. The troubleshooting info shows you have the taskbar mode set to "All taskbars show all windows". It sounds like you want that set to "Window taskbar shows all windows, DisplayFusion shows relevant windows"?

@StanF We are aware of a similar issue on our latest beta and we have it on our list to look into.

Thanks!

Thanks for your reply, but I think you have my statement reversed. I am TRYING to get DF to have ALL taskbars show ALL windows. But what it actually DOES is set ONLY the main display to show all windows, and other displays only show relevant windows. I can get the Windows Taskbar settings menu to do this, but not DF, when offered the choice of whether to keep Windows taskbar settings or DF's taskbar settings.

Ah gotcha, could you send me over a debug log as well? Here are the steps:

  • On the DisplayFusion Settings > Troubleshooting tab, change the Logging drop-down to "L1: Log Minimal" and click Apply
  • Reproduce the issue and note the time so we'll know where to check in the log file
  • Click the "Export Info to File" button on the Settings > Troubleshooting tab
  • Reply with the file attached
  • Disable debug logging after sending the log

I tried to send you the debug log but today ran into the following problems:
1. I couldn't launch DF. Task Manager shows it running, and the service and hooks processes are running, but I can't get a menu to show the settings. Same after I killed those processes and attempted to relaunch, and same after rebooting. Don't know what has changed.
2. My screen background (wallpaper) has turned black instead of my selected image. When I reset it, it changes for an instant, but then goes to black again.

Both of those issues are likely related to the same issue @StanF mentioned. We'll let you know once we get that fixed up.

Thanks!

This issue also shows up in beta 1. Seems to work for "awhile" after starting the computer, then stops. Can't relate it to any particular activity that I'm doing.

Restarting DF seems to alleviate the problem, at least for awhile.
