DisplayFusion 9.7 Now Available!

We're very excited to announce that DisplayFusion 9.7 is now available for download! This version fixes issues with loading Monitor Profiles, and also improves Window Snapping, Functions, Monitor Splitting, and more!

Important Notes!

  • 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.
  • Some anti-virus apps are blocking the installer from running automatically. If the auto-updater fails to run, please try disabling your anti-virus before running the updater, or manually download the update. We will be working on this for the next version.
  • This version updates some values in Window Position Profiles. It will automatically backup the settings before doing so, and if you run into any trouble, please let us know.

DisplayFusion 7 Highlights

  • Change: Auto-Updater now uses a different method to launch the installer
  • Change: Removed the Aero Colour Mode option, as it causes performance issues in Windows 10
  • Change: New wallpaper source: Google Earth View
  • Change: Google Photos login is now done in external browser, you'll need to re-login after updating to this version

  • Change: New Advanced Settings (see full change log)

Since this version, i must resave all my monitor profile. Otherwise when i switch to a monitor profile my screen doesn't manage well the resolution.
(See the picture)

Moreover for every switch of monitor profile, my screen goes black during 3/4seconds, this is annoying.

Finally, i must confirm my choice of monitor profile everytime now !

So 3 problems very annoying:
- Broke resolution
- Black screen during 3/4 seconds
- Confirm the monitor profile everytime

I will download a previous version throught the help section.

After updating, my function is no longer working:

Code



Really just calling
BFS.DisplayFusion.RunFunction("Load Window Position Profiles: normal")
is the problem.

Edit: Never mind, guess I'm using an old method. I updated it to the following:

BFS.DisplayFusion.LoadWindowPositionProfile("normal")

@Gaetan48724: I've responded to your email from a couple of days ago, so we'll continue troubleshooting there.

@Eptik2k: DisplayFusion shouldn't affect that, we don't have any special code or features for dragging games to other monitors. If you exit DisplayFusion does it work?

its a old game fiesta online but it allows you to move mouse to 2nd/3rd
monitor while playing the game
maybe this feature works for all games that allows you to move mouse into 2nd/3rd monitor without alt tabbing
something changed with this new patch that no longer allows it
i have not tested any other games but its a very good feature if it works on every game thats not locking the mouse to the monitor

I'm also having monitor order issues: see image below. Even though I've changed the monitor profile to display in the order of my choice, the monitors, obviously, are not displaying properly. Unfortunately, my mouse thinks they are displaying that way and now I have to move my mouse to the right (when on the right-hand monitor) in order to get to the left hand monitor.
Suggestions?
Thanks, Darcee

Can you drag the monitors around in the Monitor Configuration window so that they are aligned correctly and in the correct order?

Yes, as is shown on the screen shot of the open monitor configuration screen.
But once the changes are accepted, nothing happens.

Just to confirm, you can drag the monitors around and try to apply the settings but the settings don't apply correctly? Are you able to apply the settings using the Windows display properties? Thanks!

Great thought! I tried using the Windows 'display' settings, but noted that the monitors were attached to the NVidea GForce graphics display. I was able to reset the monitors properly within that software.
Thanks so much for the wonderful and timely attention to this issue. I hope this might help you, and others.
