A recent AVG and Avast antivirus update is preventing DisplayFusion 9.9 from launching on some systems.
If you're running into this issue, please update to the latest DisplayFusion 10.0 Beta.

Move Windows main taskbar to specific split only (vertically placed)

I noticed that this topic has been discussed several times already.
And that it should be possible via the following advanced setting:
Settings > Advanced Settings window, put the split ID in the "Taskbar: Windows Taskbar Split Monitor ID" option, then apply the Settings and restart DisplayFusion.
However, this does not work for me, I've tried several combinations with all available taskbar settings in DF, but unfortunately so far with no results.
I'm currently trialing DF in Windows 10 Pro, with one UltraWide monitor.
I've divided this monitor into 3 splits -> 1.1, 1.2 and 1.3
I'm using the Windows main taskbar in a vertical manner.
I can move it (via Windows 10) between the far right & left of the monitor.
But I'd like to have it on the middle (small) split, and only there.
But upon entering "1.2" into 'Windows Taskbar Split Monitor ID' and restarting DF, nothing changes, the Windows main taskbar always stays where I put it via Windows itself.
The other advanced settings are working very nicely though!
-> Force Primary Monitor ID: 1.3
-> Ignore Monitors: 102 (but why the weird notation, and not 1.2?)
The placement of the Windows main taskbar is the only dealbreaker left for me.
If that could be fixed, then the trial would definitely be successful for me :)

The Windows taskbar has to be on a screen edge, it doesn't allow us to position it in the middle of the display, so it can only work in the middle split if it's on the top or the bottom, sorry for the bad news there!

Hi Keith,

Thanks for your (fast) feedback!
Ahw that's a pity indeed, not DF's fault of course, but big blue's! ;)
Guess I'll have to live with it, or switch back to separate monitors.

Great software though, almost every imaginable feature is incorporated and more ;)
