Flickering Taskbar/Start Button?

4 discussion posts
I've been using DF for 6 years now and finally ran into a problem.

Just upgraded my PC to an i7-10700k and am having problems with the taskbar flickering like it's being redrawn sporadically. Seems to happen more often when using Chrome but I've seen this with PPT, Outlook, Explorer, discord, etc.

The start button is also turning black and then back to white. Usually around the same time the taskbar decides to flicker. If I click it when it's turned black it opens on the left window or not at all. (DF taskbar is right window)

Tried the newest beta, same problem. Log attached.

Note this is a pretty fresh install of Windows with really only spotify, Creative Cloud, office, and some game clients installed so I don't think there's any startup problems...

We've just released a new beta version of DisplayFusion (https://www.displayfusion.com/Download/Beta) and this issue should be all fixed up. Please let us know if you run into any trouble after updating.

Thanks!

I've updated to version 9.7.1 (beta6) and am still having the issue. Though where before the start flag would more blink grey it's now blinking grey and flickering grey.

The taskbar is also flickering like it's being redrawn at random time increments. Seems to be more apparent when I'm in Chrome?

Logs attached.

Hi, I am having the same issue, it all started after I upgraded to 20H2, it has got so bad that I have had to close the app. I am on the latest version of the DisplayFusion with Windows 10 Pro. I have tried going back to the default Windows graphics driver and updating the latest Graphics driver Nvidia GTX 1650 Super

Hello. I just wanted to also add in that I upgraded to Windows update 20H2 a couple of days ago as well and my DF taskbars also started constantly disappearing and reappearing kinda like they're being restarted in the background. It is highly annoying.

I started having this issue a couple patches ago however I think I found what the issue was for me and wanted to post it just it case this helps anyone else.

I had entered a compatibility setting for chrome when I had a issue with fullscreen chrome covering the taskbar.

I have removed my compatibility setting for chrome I am no longer getting the flickering taskbar issue and I think the fullscreen issue was fixed a couple of patches ago.

I am having the same issue after updating to 20h2, mostly when using edge, watching videos and moving the window to other monitor. I've tried to uninstall and reinstall graphics driver with no success.

Would you be able to try 9.7.1 Beta 10? We haven't been able to reproduce it any more here since Beta 9/10.
