Display Taskbar Settings restored wrong after display connected to other DP Port

I have got two computers connected to the exact same display config (3 displays).
But when the display order in Windows is different (can be reproduced by just switching cables), the splits seem to be restored fine, but the taskbar configuration is wrong. So I have to click thousand times to fix it every time.

And: The monitor prifiles don't save the taskbar settings.

We have an open feature request for Taskbar Profiles, so I will add your vote to it. In the meantime, you can make it slightly easier by backing up the settings (Settings > Options > Export) for each configuration. You can then load the appropriate backup when switching the cables.

Hope that helps!

Is there any way to manipulate the export? Only display Ids have changed. The displays are the same!

What do you want to change in the Export? It's a registry export, so you can open it in Notepad and edit some things (not all because some settings are serialized) there.

As I said I have two computer with the same monitors (and in the near future even more).
I don't want to set the 10 taskbars manually for every computer, just because the Display ID is different (and the rest is the same).

So I would like to change the file so it works if the display IDs have changed. Especially als Taskbar related settings

Ah ok, great! You can definitely do that. In the settings export, you'll see there's a section for taskbars, and there are sub-sections for the monitor IDs, so you can definitely change the monitor IDs in the export, then import it and be good to go. If you have any trouble modifying them, let us know and we'll do our best to help out.

Thanks!
