Feature Request: multiple-window pin to taskbar

It would be great to have multiple "pin to taskbar" areas. Specifically, it would be nice to pin a program to a secondary monitor's taskbar (which currently doesn't exist).

A common use case would be programs like chat and VOIP clients I always run on my second monitor, and if I pin them to taskbar, launch them, and move them to the second monitor, the pinned button remains. It'd be cool to have them pinned on the monitor I place the windows on.

Attached is a brief screenshot illustrating my point.

We do have an open feature request for pinned items on the secondary taskbar, so I've added your vote to it. We are planning to add it, but we need to make sure it works well

In the mean time, you can add shortcuts to the taskbar by right-clicking and navigating to Multi-Monitor Taskbar > Edit Shortcuts.

Thanks!

Sounds good. I wasn't aware of this feature; that will work just fine until an update brings "true" pinning.

One issue I've found is that the shortcuts don't always appear to work; launching it from the standard shortcut on my desktop or pinning it to the Windows bar works fine, but a DisplayFusion shortcut will not launch some programs. An example would be the Mumble application I mentioned earlier. Clicking the shortcut does not launch the process and nothing observably happens.

Attached are screenshots of the shortcut that works from the desktop, as well as the DisplayFusion configuration. Also attached is the result of the Control-Shift-Escape menu after clicking the Mumble shortcut, showing that no process has been launched.

Weird! Just tested Mumble on my machine and it launched fine from the shortcut on the DisplayFusion taskbar. Could you enable debug logging on the Troubleshooting tab in DisplayFusion, then try to launch the app and send me the debug log. You can send it to support@displayfusion.com, also note the time that you tried to launch it so we know where to check in the log.

The debug log is named DisplayFusion.log and can be found by clicking the "Open Log Location" button on the Troubleshooting tab.

Thanks!

In an effort to cleanup the DisplayFusion Discussions, this topic is being marked as Complete as it hasn't received a response for more than 30 days. If you're still having trouble and would like some help, just let me know!

Note, the feature request for taskbar pinning is still open, and we'll post an update when it's available.

Thanks!
