Multi monitor taskbar hides on fullscreen

This is becoming very frustrating, I use my second monitor for the majority of my web browsing and I also have my security camera software running on the second display as well, and I would really love to be able to switch back and forth without having to minimize the active window. I have the allow taskbar reloading option enabled, but it still will not stay on top, I have also checked and ensured that autohide is disabled. What else can I do to force the taskbar to remain visable?

Hello,

If you open up the Display Fusion setting window and head to the taskbar tab, do you have "Show taskbar in front of full screen applications when they lose focus" enabled as well?

Thanks!

Any more ideas as what to try? It is very annoying to have to use alt-tab to cycle through the open windows as opposed to simply clicking on the taskbar.

Hello,

Interesting, does the issue only happen while you have that security camera application running?

Thanks!

No it happens with all applications open.

Hello,

Let me re-word my last message, If you close down the security software, does the taskbar still disappear?

Thanks!

It shows up with just the security camera software running, but if I open anything else i.e. Firefox, it hides.

Also, I do not have the security software running full screen, if I do, the task bar becomes hidden

Hello,

If you move the Display Fusion taskbar to the bottom of your monitor, rather then the right side, does that make any difference?

Thanks!

Yes, also I 'fixed' it by telling it to hide, then telling it to unhide. It has worked for 2 days that way, so I am going to say that whatever was causing it to hide cleared itself out when I enabled hide then disabled it.
