How to disable custom functions in a specific application?

5 discussion posts
Background: I use Ctrl-Alt-(number) combinations for specific window arrangements with my display. This is what it looks like (see the attachment).

This worked well until I installed the new Flight Simulator, which I use in windowed mode. I would like the hotkeys to not work when in that game, as there are some in-game functions that also map to those key combinations.

Is there a way to make DisplayFusion ignore either the function or the key combination? I suspect this can be done with compatibility settings, but don't know which to use.

There actually isn't a compatibility option for disabling the key combinations, unfortunately.

However, you may be able to do what you're looking for by creating a couple of Trigger rules. One for when the Flight Simulator process starts, and another for when it ends.

I don't have Flight Simulator here for testing with, but I've attached screenshots of the Trigger rules I setup and tested with Notepad.

Hope that helps!
