Monitor Splitting when using full screen

User Image
1 discussion post
Hi everyone, I just started using Display Fusion and I'm trying out the monitor splitting for the first time and I had a question. I'm splitting my monitor in 2 parts (top and bottom) on a portrait oriented monitor so each virtual monitor is more or less square.
I haven't played around with it much yet, but I do notice that it snaps my windows properly so that's good, but I did notice that I don't have 2 taskbars (even though the option is selected) nor 2 backgrounds. I didn't think much of this as it isn't really important to me and the snapping of windows seems ok.
My concern started when I tried to fullscreen a VM in VMWare Workstation. I assumed it would fullscreen to the virtual monitor (so half the screen), but it still takes up the whole monitor. So my question is: is this normal? And if it isn't, what steps can I take to troubleshoot this? I'm wondering if it could be related to my lack of duplicated taskbar/background.
I'm not sure what information everyone needs to help me diagnose this, but for starters I'm running Windows 11 and have a Radeon RX590.
Any help is appreciated!
Edit: Looks like it's not just VMs that are the issue. I just tried fullscreening a YouTube video on Chrome and the same thing happened. Maybe the monitor splitting isn't happening at all and the snapping is a Windows feature? Nope, I actually see 2.1 and 2.2 when snapping, so DisplayFusion is at least doing something.

We currently don't support constraining full screen windows to splits, but we do have this open as a feature request so I've added your vote to it.

For the wallpaper/taskbar issue, can you send me over a screenshot of your DisplayFusion Monitor Configuration window?
