Is DF going to work after I update to Windows 11?

Will DF just work like you'd expect it to, mirroring the new start menu from day 1? Or will it break and require some updates?

Hello,

With the changes to the start menu it won't work right away, but we should be able to run the insider builds and get it fixed up before the final release.

We'll have a bit better of an idea after the announcement on Thursday as well

Thanks!

"apps can no longer customize areas of the taskbar"

Does this mean they will break the ability for 3rd part customization of the taskbar? Has anyone used multiple monitors on 11 so far? hows the taskbar?

This is a really important time for you guys. Since it appears there's no way to customize the taskbar and make it look like Windows 10. I came here thinking there was a way to use DF as the main taskbar but I guess it's not available yet.

You can make the taskbar in W11 left-alligned if that's what you mean.

Is that really what I mean? Do you really think that's what I mean?

Found an option in the advanced settings for DF to display on the main monitor.

Just moved to Windows 11, Build 22000.51.

Any chance of getting early betas of DF for testing?

So what type of issues did you run into? I am about to install 11 shortly.

Right now, only that the Start button on non main windows doesn't work. There is another "issue" with Desktops in Windows but I think that it is an issue with Windows and not DF

Yes it looks a bit odd to have the old UI in Windows 11. For others the only issue I see is that clicking on the windows icon does not result in bringing up start menu. But the taskbar does show the apps on the monitor. So only a minor annoyance.

I also updated to Windows 11. Besides the windows button not working on my second screen also the taskbar on my second monitor is Windows 10 style instead of the new style. I guess the new style will come with future DisplayFusion releases?

I sure hope so, but I'm going to wait for the official release anyway.

So far I only have two smaller issues with DF and Win 11.

Win 11 has a built-in "FancyZones" feature which you can use if you hover over the window maximize button. With DF enabled it will only show briefly the window with no chance to use that feature.

The second smaller issue is with Multi-Monitor Taskbars. Leftclick on the Windows Button on DF Taskbars does not do anything. Rightclick will open the "shortcuts window", but not where I clicked. Instead it uses the "original" Windows Button location.

Hello,

@Lupus, Could you send over a video of the issue happening? I can't seem to reproduce that on my end.

As for the taskbar appearance, we will do our best to make it match the Windows taskbar, but that likely won't be until later in the summer when Microsoft has finalized the design.

The other issues in this thread have been noted.

Thanks!

I just noticed on one of my systems with Windows 11, I have had to disable DF alt tab feature otherwise I get multiple "DesktopWindowXamlSource" references in DF's alt tab. My assumption is something is broken as disabling the feature in DF's settings they no longer appear under W11's alt tab.
Will have to look at my other systems later and report back.

hey guys when i'm trying to execute this script

cmd.exe
"C:\Program Files (x86)\DisplayFusion\DisplayFusionCommand.exe" -monitorloadprofile "newone"
exit

to load the other profile that i have configured with the other monitor i'm getting the specific error :

An error has occurred while applying your new Monitor configuration.
Please check your settings and try again.
Error: Failed to call SetDisplayConfig. [HR: 87]
[System.Exception]

It was working perfectly fine in windows 10 till i upgraded to Windows 11 Pro 21H2 22000.71 Windows Feature Experience Pack 421.18201.0.3 . I'm using DisplayFusion Pro on Steam 9.8 10.0.22000.

Any chance i make it work in the current version ? thanx in advance !

p.s. tried as well with the 10.0 beta 3 version, still same issue

p.s.2 ALL SOLVED leaving my comment here in case someone else have the same issue. I needed to resave the monitor profiles and everything started working again!

It looks like it has something to do with Multi-Monitor Taskbar. If I disable this, the built-in "Fancy Zones" preview does not dissapear.

I have split my Monitor into three "separate Monitors" using the Splits and Padding feature. Monitor 1 uses the Windows Taskbar on which the "Fancy Zones" preview works and does not disappear. But on Monitor 2+3 it will disappear due to the Multi-Monitor taskbar enabled there.

If I disable the Multi-Monitor taskbar, the feature will work on all three monitors.

Hello,

Ah yep, it looks like I can reproduce it, so I've added it to our list.

Thanks!
