Displayfusion capabilities - newbie questions

As mentioned in one of the other topics I've only just started to implement a multi-monitor setup (currently 2x monitors, although may be 3x soon), and am investigating which is the best 'monitor manager' to use. I am trialling DisplayFusion (DF), Actual Multiple Monitors (AMM) and basic Windows 10 multi-monitor support (not really a monitor manager, but still needs to be checked out).

I like different features of each as they 'come out of the box'. Displayfusion looks to be quite powerful in its configurability, and the scripting capability could be beneficial. However current inexperience makes it difficult to quickly determine whether it can be configured to provide some of the functionality that I like in AMM - so I'm just going to ask the questions and hope that someone experienced can let me know if its possible, and if so how to do it.

  • On AMM the titlebar icon allows you to choose which monitor to send window to, rather than just Next - is this possible in DF?
  • Right clicking on the taskbar in AMM enables you to choose to move 'all' windows between monitors, rather than having to remember different hotkey sequences or to have a titlebar icon showing on every application - can you do this in DF?
  • As mentioned in the other topic the move 'all' windows ability enables minimised windows to be moved between monitors whilst retaining their minimised state (which is useful for reducing screen clutter) - can this be done in DF?
  • The titlebar button capability on AMM automatically shrinks the titlebar 'menu' on Firefox, presenting a small left pointing arrow. The Chrome titlebar buttons adopt a different colour so as to stand out. I appreciate that these can be hidden in DF but that is less usable.

Don't get me wrong I like what I see in DF its just that I've concentrated here on the things that I like better in AMM, to see if the same things can be done.

I'll keep experimenting / learning - unfortunately other commitments have limited my available time to date so I've only got another few days on each trial to finish my comparison.

Many thanks for your time.

Thanks for the feedback!

1. Yep! You can assign the "Move Window to Different Monitor" function to the tiltebar, via the DisplayFusion Settings > Functions tab, under the "Window Move/Size" section.

2. There isn't a way to do this in DF, the closest thing would be the "Move All Windows to Current Monitor" function which you can run with a hotkey.

3. I've responded in the other thread :)

4. There isn't currently a way to collapse the titlebar buttons in DisplayFusion.

Thanks!
