New Local Account [with Administrative Privledge]

Please, what is the procedure to activate Display Fusion on a new Local Account — and to initially import all the settings from the original / primary account?

Later the Local Account should evolve some different settings, e.g. Desktop Backgrounds on the two monitors, etc.

Many thanks!

In the original account, on the Settings > Options tab, click Export Settings, and save the file somewhere that the new account has access to.

On the new account, got to Settings > Options > Restore Settings and choose that file.

After doing this, you can change settings on the new account without affecting the settings on the old account :)

Hope that helps!

Keith! … It's been quite a while, indeed.

Thank you for your prompt reply, as always.

DisplayFusion handled the task of activating on the new Local Account and importating the settings you counseled me to Export with aplomb.

I must say, as well, I am impressed how efficiently Windows 10 [1903] handles 2nd / Local Accounts and performs the 'Switcher Users' operation with PINs.

Every good wish for you and for DisplayFusion!
