Force full screen to only virtual monitor

Hi there,

I just got an awesome new Samsung CHG90 ultra widescreen monitor. I've used DisplayFusion to create three virtual monitors, and everything seems to be working well. One setting that I'd like to adjust if there's a way to: I don't want any windows to ever span more than the virtual monitor they're on. If I click the maximize button, I only want them to maximize to that particular virtual monitor.

Where this is a specific issue is with VMware Workstation. I want to select View --> Full Screen to take it into fullscreen mode and get rid of all the menus. However, when I do this, it spans the whole physical monitor -- not the virtual monitor as I'd like it to do. I can't just maximize the window to the virtual monitor -- as it leaves all the menus. Is there any way to configure this?

Thanks,
JS

Unfortunately it's not possible to constrain full screen output to splits. Full screen stuff renders directly to the entire monitor, and there's no way for us to intercept it.

Sorry!

This is exactly what I'm looking for and for the exact same reason. This exact feature works in Virtual Display Manger 3.3.2.43055. Unfortunately I would prefer to use DisplayFusion for it's other features. However, without this one very specific feature I cannot.

Please don't say there's no way for you to do it because it is currently being done by your competitor. When you get this implemented I will purchase DisplayFusion, but not before.

VDM can do it with some apps yes. Which ones are you using with VDM that are working?

My biggest need is for this to work with VMware Workstation Pro, my current version is 12.5.9 build-7535481.

VDM works with it but DisplayFusion does not.

I will be a happy camper if you can get this working. It's a pain using VMware Workstation without the full screen mode.
