DisplayFusion 9.0 Beta 1 Now Available!

We're very excited to announce that DisplayFusion 9.0 Beta 1 is finally available for download! This release has many fixes and improvements, but the biggest one by far is multi-DPI improvement on Windows 10. We spent a very long time working out the kinks in multi-DPI environments, and nearly all of them are resolved! The Settings, Desktop Wallpaper, and Monitor Configuration windows should now all re-scale correctly, regardless of which monitor they're on, or moved to.

DisplayFusion 9.0 Beta 1 Highlights

  • Major changes to support multi-DPI scaling in Windows 10
  • Improved Windows 10 compatibility (Anniversary and Creators updates)
  • Scripted Functions now support descriptions
  • Scripted Function editor now shows exceptions in the output
  • Added new scripting functions
  • Renamed "Windows Logon" to "Windows Lock Screen"
  • Support requests now allow file attachments to be sent
  • DisplayFusion desktop icon now opens the Settings window, instead of seemingly doing nothing
  • Panaramio removed from DisplayFusion, it's dead now
  • Google Image Search is fixed (API change on the Google Servers)
  • Alt+Tab no longer shows 6 entries for MS Edge
  • WindowBlinds and Start10 compatibility improvements
  • Digital Blasphemy now returns the correct sized images
  • No longer "loses" some image files or sources in the Wallpaper window
  • TitleBar Button compatibility improvements
  • Alt+Tab compatibility improvements
  • Taskbar compatibility improvements

Updating DisplayFusion

We encourage anyone on a multi-DPI setup, or anyone who likes to test the bleeding edge to update to this new version today to take advantage of these improvements. If you've already purchased DisplayFusion, it's a lifetime license, so you can upgrade to this version at no cost! If you would like to see a complete list of all the changes, please visit the DisplayFusion Beta Change Log.

Just upgraded to this version and now the taskbar on my secondary monitor stays on top while there is a fullscreen app running on that monitor. It didn't do this with the previous version. Fullscreen works properly on primary monitor. I did not change any settings after upgrading to the latest beta version.

I just updated to 9.0 Beta 1 and the setting to use the current Desktop Wallpaper image for the Windows Lock Screen no longer works. The files WindowsLogonImage.jpg and WindowsLogon_1.jpg are not longer created in the \AppData\Local\DisplayFusion\ folder.

Вug with the GetUserInputList method, not visible choise. I ran a couple of my old scripts and saw it. Reproduce on Win10 CU, maybe other versions, but there is no way to check. On Win7 all okay.

Serious bug after all these years now this beta with the same settings to not allow the alternate taskbar (DF) over full screen apps, suddenly I just have to kill DF because it just won't get out of the way and keeps itself over the top of vmware workstation and any other full screen app.

This is new with v9. In this case, the one full full screen app I run most is even fully excluded at a level of 8 I think (all exclusions/hooks) from DF.

Hopefully this can be fixed very soon as it is VERY annoying. Thanks guys!

I can't find anything in the current stable release that will alter mouse speed between varying DPI multi-monitor configurations (1080 - 3840 - 1080).

Also don't see this in the list of changes in the new beta. Any chance this is on the list of possible additions to the new version?

@Richard: Is your taskbar colour set via Windows, or Start10?

Ok, I can't seem to reproduce this. Could you attach a copy of your troubleshooting info? Here are the steps:
  • Open the Settings > Troubleshooting tab
  • Click the "Copy to Clipboard" button
  • Paste the text into a text file (please don't paste the text directly into your reply, the formatting gets garbled and makes it difficult to parse)
  • Reply with the file attached
