Multi-monitor task bar showing in full screen

Whenever watching any kind of video on google Chrome task bar will show up whenever the video isn't the focus point. As I am using dual monitors it happens on both screen so I figured it wasn't just windows problem. In the settings I have already un-clicked the "show taskbar in front of Full screen applications when they lose focus" and nothing changes

Did disabling that option fix it for the second monitor at least? It should, but it won't affect the primary monitor.

No it hasn't. The task bar always pops up on both screens no matter what video is playing on either screen once the focus is off the video. I am using windows 10 with google chrome Version 50.0.2661.75

Sorry to hijack, but didnt want to make another post on this.

Having a similar issue where if I have a fullscreen video(twitch on chrome in particular) on my secondary monitor. When i start doing stuffs on my primary monitor, the taskbar will be on top of my fullscreen.

Unchecking [Show taskbar in front of fullscreen applications when they lose focus] has not been working. This issue only persist recently but is a rather on/off situation.

Log attached if it helps.

Can confirm this is happening to me too but i'm 99% sure its a regression in the latest version of chrome (50.0.2661.75)

If you test full screen video play back in firefox does it work ok there?

If you roll back your chrome to 49.0.2623.112 (I tested this by using a portableapps.com version) does it work ok there?

If so can you star this bug at chrome: https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=604359&can=2&q=full%20screen&colspec=ID%20Pri%20M%20Stars%20ReleaseBlock%20Component%20Status%20Owner%20Summary%20OS%20Modified&sort=-modified

Or alternatively maybe the binary fortress guys can suggest a work around?

Well, the FireFox roundabout works. I'm too lazy to uninstall and rollback Chrome to an older version.

I can't seem to reproduce this issue here. When you run into it, does Chrome show up in the "FullScreen Applications" section of the DisplayFusion Troubleshooting tab?

Actually, I was able to reproduce this now, and it definitely seems to be a Chrome bug. I noticed that when Chrome is full screen and focused, it's the full height of the screen (i.e. 1440px on my 2560x1440 monitor). When I click on something else, it changes to 1439px, which is what's preventing it from being detected as a full screen app.

So, as I mentioned, it's a Chrome bug for sure, but we may be able to work around it. I'll put it on on our list osition:relative;vertical-align:middle;">

Thanks!

@Keith That makes a lot of sense as to why on my "main" panel (where the default windows 10 task bar is) The bug exhibits itself as showing just the bottom part of the taskbar (the blue lines basically on windows 10) rather than the whole thing.

Glad you can repro. Hopefully chrome can sort it out. Its a very weird thing to decide to do when dropping focus. I cant imagine why they would do that?! If you haven't could you perhaps update the chrome bug I raised with your findings? The more people that talk about it the more chance we stand of getting it fixed (though if you guys could work around it it that would be fantastic also!)

I've attached a screenshot of the issue with the display fusion log screenshot anyway if it helps some!

Thanks

Michael

@knowfear: This is a Chrome issue, but we're going to see if we can fix it up. I've merged your topic with another one for the same issue osition:relative;vertical-align:middle;">

We've just released a new DisplayFusion beta version (http://www.displayfusion.com/Download/Beta/) and this issue should be all fixed up. Please let us know if you run into any trouble after updating.

Thanks!

Hi Keith,

Thanks so much for the update... The beta build is *almost* perfect, Just the slight issue now with the blue lines underneath the icons showing through as in the attached image.

Any ideas?

Michael

Is that on the primary monitor, or one of the other monitors?

whatever you guys did fixed the problem, and as you mentioned with the video changing size i thing i can see a 1 or 2 pixel line of my background or my task-bar at the bottom of the video his is nothing compared to what it was, and thanks for the fix

Yeah, I just realized that the issue @mjefferys noted is expected, because the Chrome window is still shrinking by 1px when it loses focus (this is a Chrome bug), causing the bottom 1px of the DF taskbar to show, even though it's behind the Chrome window. Nothing we can do there, unfortunately osition:relative;vertical-align:middle;">

Sorry to revive a very old thread, but i'm having the same problem on display fusion 9.7 and 9.7.1 with chrome only. Could the fix be added again to the next beta?
