Maximized/Full Screen Applications hiding behind taskbar

I am going to screenshot this post as an example. Fullscreen applications randomly hide behind the taskbar making certain website unusable because of inputs at the bottom of the screen.

It is happening with the Discord App, Opera GX, Steam, Epic Games Launcher, Jagex Launcher etc.

Windows 11. DF Pro (Steam) v9.9.

I have taskbar position manually set to Bottom.

Show taskbar in front of full screen is disabled in settings.

It randomly happens 1/4 times I start my computer without having to actually change setting and having to restart my pc just for a program to work as intended is becoming very cumbersome.

Pictures showing the issue attached with numerous programs including YouTube on Fullscreen.

Thanks for sending that over. It looks like you have "General: Ignore Full Screen Windows" enabled in the DisplayFusion Advanced Settings. If you set that back to the default value and restart DisplayFusion, it should fix that up for full screen applications like Youtube videos.

For non-full screen maximized windows, does restarting Explorer.exe fix that up when the issue happens?

Thanks!

Flicking that setting hasn't fixed the issue. Now the taskbar is hiding behind maximised applications like Discord and Chrome (I can't see it).

The only way to make the taskbar visible is to move all applications to the other monitor and only then does the bar become visible.

When I move the applications back to the other monitor they taskbar overlays the bottom of the window before disappearing a few moments later.

Restarting explorer through Task Manager does not solve the issue.

I am having this same issue with all applications. Any ideas?

@mrarbitersir Okay that's expected, as you have "Show taskbar in front of full screen applications" disabled. It seems like DisplayFusion is seeing those maximized applications as full screen windows though. Could you send me over another copy of your troubleshooting info while you have Discord and Chrome open?

@MichaelDermer Can you update to our latest beta and see if the issue persists?

Thanks!

On restart, the issue seems to have fixed itself but it seems to intermittently return.

While the issue is temporarily resolved, I'm getting this weird intermittent flicker on the taskbar where it seems to momentarily flash/disappear and return. Once every second for like a couple of milliseconds like it isn't keeping up with the refresh rate of the monitor or something.

I've noticed I can reproduce the issue if I turn the monitors off and turn them on again as well. Once this happens, the taskbar no longer registers and disappears completely. When it shows up, it is hiding the bottom portion of maximised windows. I have shared two debug reports before and after reproducing the bug to see if there are any inconsistencies.

There's another issue which seems to have popped up around the time of installing DF, but I'm not entirely sure if it's related or not. I'll run some troubleshoots. The issue is in the first 10 seconds of turning monitors on (whether its at startup or when windows has fully logged in after a period of time) I get this crazy flicker of both monitors on and off for about 10-15 seconds. Once this time passes the monitors are acting like normal.

I've read this could be a driver issue which I updated around the same time as installation so I'll wait for nVidia to update their drivers before linking the two or ruling out DF. For reference I'm running a nVidia 3070.

Thanks for sending those over, it looks like DisplayFusion is detecting that Opera window as full screen. Do you have any compatibility settings setup in DisplayFusion for that application?

That flickering on boot is strange. If you disable DisplayFusion from starting with Windows, does the issue persist?

Thanks!
