feature request - taskbar over RDP session

Hi, I finally got round to getting a full version of DF (thanks to the sale!), and its great (as always). There is one minor bug/feature I'd like.

I work with a lot of different devices and use a lot of RDP sessions.

If I have an RDP session open on monitor 1 and I focus on any local application or the desktop on my own machine (ie not in the RDP session) then the task bar comes to the front of the RDP session, meaning I can see all my icons and stuff, even if the RDP session is full screen. However if I've got a session open on monitor 2 and I focus on the local desktop/applications the DF taskbar doesn't overlay the RDP session. Meaning I have to minimise the RDP session to see whats behind it. I can partially work round it be putting the icons for all my apps on the primary monitor, but that kinda defeats the purpose of having the second task bar!

If you could add this to a list of 'something to have a look at one day' that'd be great.

Thanks

You're in luck! DisplayFusion can already do what you're asking for. In the DisplayFusion Settings window, on the Taskbar tab, just check off "Show taskbar in front of fullscreen applications..." and you should be all set.

Cool! Thanks, I'd dismissed that as the annoying 'taskbar always on top' option. That'll teach me to read everything properly before coming online to moan.

No problem, sometimes I have a hard time naming options so that they are as intuitive as they should be.
