Keyboard shortcuts for application windows manipulation suddenly no longer work.

Not sure if anyone else is having this issue, but as of the past 2 or 3 days, any DisplayFusion keyboard shortcuts that manipulate window size, location or monitor no longer do anything. For instance, the keyboard shortcut to move a window to the next monitor or minimize to systray, etc. does not work. I have some customized shortcuts that shrink windows to a specific size, move them to a specific location on a particular monitor, and those no longer work either.

I don't think it is an problem with a keybind conflict with shortcuts other applications and/or Windows might use, since I can manually trigger the screensaver to start just fine. I have tried swapping the other shortcuts to that same set of keys for the screensaver shortcut and it does not fix it, also leading me to believe that is not the root cause.

Additionally, it seems this behavior is limited to keyboard shortcuts, since on automatic triggers I have set, DisplayFusion can adjust the size and location of application windows without issue.

Not sure what to do. Should I try uninstalling and reinstalling DisplayFusion? Or does anyone know an easy fix for this? Or perhaps some troubleshooting I should do?

Hi Mark,

If you open the DisplayFusion Settings > Functions tab, is "Enable Key Combinations" checked?

Thanks!

Really sorry for the delayed response. It appears that Windows was just acting strange and something was preventing the Windows key from working. Behavior is back to normal.
