DF Taskbars Not Hiding With Windows' Taskbar Setting

I was doing a bit of gaming last night and wanted window-less 1440p on my 49" 32:9 monitor with 2:1/2/3 splits. I set the Windows taskbar to autohide, and it did. But to my surprise neither of the DF taskbars hid when the Windows one slid up and off the screen.

Ooh, I like that you open Explorer to the directory when you export debug info! Well done!

Hello,

Thanks for sending that over. It looks like your DisplayFusion taskbars have auto hide disabled as well. If you right click an empty spot on the taskbar and head to Multi-Monitor Taskbar > Auto-Hide, you can adjust that setting there.

Hope that helps!

Oooh! I like that you can tie it to show/hide with the Windows taskbar, as that is the functionality I was looking for in the first place!

This app truly is an example of the phrase "With a great feature set comes great complexity"! There is a lot of "where's my cheese - or wait, do I even have that cheese?" going on constantly! LOL

I have a glitch with this mechanism. I had windows taskbar set to autohide, then turned on "autohide, show with windows taskbar" for DF's taskbars. They started hiding and showing all as a unit.

HOWEVER, when I then disabled autohide on the windows taskbar, DF's taskbars continued to stay hidden unless I moved the mouse up to make them slide into view. I think this is a flaw. "autohide, show with windows taskbar" should do just that - i.e. if windows taskbar is set to NEVER autohide, then DF's taskbars should also ALWAYS remain in view. This should be a simple bit of logic to implement, since it is just checking a value and setting a flag.
