Feature Request: Force background on startup

Great product, and certainly a great plus for your product to support a lot of the Ultramon features.

I have a feature request that i don't think would take much tine to do... essentially my workplace has a policy that resets my background every day. If you added a checkbox that would force the refreshing of the background to the last used settings, when the program starts, this would be a valuable addition, with probably only the addition of

* checkbox
* storage of value
* IF statement on startup with function call

If you added this in an upcoming version i'd definately donate to the fund.

Regards

This is a great idea. I will add it as an option to the next version. DisplayFusion currently watches for a change in the resolution of any of your monitors, so it would be trivial to also watch for a change in the wallpaper, then if you have the "Don't allow other programs to change my wallpaper" (or whatever) setting enabled it would prompt you to change it back.

Thanks!

:-) If I get a chance to finalize the new version tomorrow I'll be releasing it this weekend. If not it will be sometime next week - keep your eyes open (or subscribe to the RSS feed... that's probably easier than checking the site everyday).

Hi guys,

Unfortunately this feature I requested doesn't work on my computer. As my desktop policy is set before Display Fusion loads, it is unable to detect it has changed.

Here is the description of exactly will work, and won't be annoying every time i log in

"If the the "force settings" checkbox is checked, then when display fusion starts it will apply the current saved settings to the system without prompting."

I hate to say it guys, but i'm kinda glad this didn't work because i was not looking forward to having to click an OK box every time i logged into my machine.

I hope you guys don't think i'm being too demanding or anything.. i just wanna work with you to make this the best product it can be.

Hi Dan,
No problem - if the feature isn't working perfectly then you're not being too demanding. :-) I will include a 2nd option to disable the prompt when the wallpaper changes. Also, using this option should fix your problem as well. When DisplayFusion detects a wallpaper change it shows a tray balloon prompting you to correct it. However, during your system startup it's possible that this balloon isn't being displayed, so you never get prompted. With this new setting it will just automatically correct your wallpaper so you shouldn't have to worry, it should just work. (I hope) :-)

Thanks for being so patient. :-) This issue has been fixed in the recently released v1.4 of DisplayFusion. You can find the new version here:

I included an option to "Fix my wallpaper without prompting" which should take care of your issue.

Thanks!
