Disable all hooks/access (primarily because of game anticheat)

2 discussion posts
I have had your software for years upon years when I bought it from steam many moons ago and I just moved a new display to using DisplayPort and since I dont shut down my pc and simply turn off my monitors I am getting the annoying applications flipping to the wrong monitor problem and I recalled this can fix that.
I have set up triggers with lock/unlock which seem to be working fine but I have a lot of games with some twitchy anti-cheat and I was wondering if I can simply disable DisplayFusion touching any apps at all right now with hooks etc.
I know lots and lots of people dont have issues but since I am primarily going to be using it for a sole purpose for now I want to limit hooking/touching apps as much as possible until I dig in again and decide what I am going to do.
I know I can disable per app using compatibility but I want to confirm a way to lock out any app hooking at all for now.
I suspect the advanced settings have what I need but I thought I would ask as I really dont want it interfacing in any way with my applications for now.
I have disabled the move window icon on the top bar already but if you could give me some pointers that would be great.

Also as a side thought, if it cant already, it would be nice to exclude all programs inside a directory from having hooks/displayfusion accessing it rather than having to add each individually if possible and then I could exclude my common game install directories.

If you can confirm the best way to do this that would be great and amazing work on the app over the years! I am hoping to get back into it again I just want a fully safe game mode for now just in case.

If you head into our advanced settings, you can enable "Disable system hooks (applications)" to stop the hooks globally.

The compatibility tab also takes wild cards for file paths, using an asterisks (*), so you can add multiple files.

Hope that helps!

Thanks that confirms what I thought after looking through.

I didnt realise that wildcards worked, so I would just have for example:


As my path and just check disable applications hooks as my only option and that would do the same thing for anything inside those directories and sub directories?

Thanks again for your help!
