DisplayFusion 9.6 Now Available!

We're very excited to announce that DisplayFusion 9.6 is now available for download! This version overhauls the Monitor Configuration backend code, adds a new wallpaper provider, and fixes a bunch of minor issues.

Important Notes!

  • There's an issue with loading Monitor Profiles that were saved in DisplayFusion 9.5. We'll have it fixed up with the next point release shortly. Newly created or re-saved Monitor Profiles in 9.6 will work fine.
  • The first time you open the Settings > Screen Saver tab after installing this update, it will be very slow to open, due to Windows Defender locking the .scr files for a long time during the initial scan.
  • If auto-updater fails to run, please try disabling your anti-virus before running the updater
  • The installer size increase is due to the inclusion of a Chromium-based webview library to replace the IE 11 based .NET webview
