Monitor Profiles + Start menu + SUW Monitor

Hi there,

LONG time Displayfusion user. Generally don't have much trouble.

However, since I got my super ultrawide (5120x1440) I started using monitor profiles to make the screen act like the center is more like a typical ultrawide.

Here is the kicker though. When clicking the start menu button the start menu still shows up ALL the way to the left of the monitor and not at the start button location.

Is there some option I am missing in the settings or a way to resolve this?

Sure. I actually narrowed it down. It was nexus dock... well shelf. When the shelf sits on top of the taskbar for some reason it interferes with DP taskbar resize and the start menu location which is REALLY strange.

Wow, strange indeed! Could you attach a screenshot of the Nexus Dock position and the Start menu in the wrong location? I'll try testing with the same setup here and see if I can reproduce it.

Thanks!

Well I mispoke. It's a little more complicated than that. It gets more crazy.

With the shelf down... it forces the default windows taskbar to full width.
With NextStart sitting at position I want it to (which would be the size I have the profile setup with DF, which I manually did with NextStart) then you see the start menu to the far left... because obviously.. for whatever reason it's being forced to full width.

So here is a shot with normal taskbar, shelf sitting on top. Taskbar is forced full width as soon as I put it down.

Ah weird, I wonder if the Shelf tries to mess with the Windows taskbar size if it's too close?

It's entirely possible. The amount of stuff that Winstep does is quite insane.
