Lost taskbar

Hi there,

Love your app, recently switched from ultramon for the added functionality.

One issue though, when my monitor turns off when the computer is idle, my main screens toolbar is missing. I can see the start button, but that is it. However on my second screen the full taskbar is showing.

Code



Any help would be much appreciated!

Just to double-check, is it the DisplayFusion taskbar that's missing, or the native Windows taskbar?

Thanks!

It's the native windows taskbar on my main screen - computer thinks it's the 'projector'

You can still see the start button, but the rest is gone, you can see the wallpaper

Main screen - Dell 30" - DVI-D
Second - Sony 55" HDMI

After leaving the taskbar in the broken state, letting the screensaver come on again, the taskbar came back? weird.

This is happening frequently, so a fix would be good. The latest beta update hasn't resolved it

That's really strange! DisplayFusion shouldn't be affecting the Windows taskbar at all. If you restart your machine, then exit DisplayFusion, does the Windows taskbar still eventually disappear?

Ok, after further investigation it was the screensaver setting the taskbar to transparent. Because the screen turns off it doesn't get a chance to set it back to opaque.

It was just a coincidence that I installed the theme at the same time I installed displayfusion.

Thanks for your time.
