Odd interaction with Chrome and monitor splitting.

I have a two monitor setup. On one monitor, there are no splits. When I'm in Chrome, I can switch back and forth between full screen and windowed via the Maximize/Restore Down button in the upper right corner of the program.

However, on the monitor with the split, when I maximize Chrome, the button does not switch to the Restore Down function.

I've attached a screenshot to show what I mean. Thanks for any help!

Okay, looks like it's all programs, not just Chrome. Notepad, Explorer, etc. And normally you can double click on the menu bar and the window will Restore Down, but not so on the monitor with a split.

It's expected that the button doesn't change, because what's happening is just that DisplayFusion is hooking the maximize to monitor, and resizing the window to fit the split instead.

However, clicking the button or double-clicking the titlebar should still restore the window. It might be that for some reason Windows is remembering the window size as being fit to the split. If you manually resize the window smaller, then maximize it and restore it, does it go back to the smaller size?

It does not go back to the smaller size.

Could you send over a debug log for this issue?

  • On the DisplayFusion Settings > Troubleshooting tab, change the Logging drop-down to "L2: Log Detailed" and click Apply
  • Maximize a window to a split, then try to restore it and note the time so we'll know where to check in the log file
  • Click the "Export Info to File" button on the Settings > Troubleshooting tab
  • Reply with the file attached
  • Disable debug logging after sending the log

Thanks!

Ah sorry, I need one more thing enabled for the logging. In the Advanced Settings, can you set "Log Level for Hooks" to 2, then restart DisplayFusion again and reproduce the issue?

Thanks! Are you using the stable build of Chrome, or one of the dev or Canary builds?

Quick question here, when you drag the Chrome window around, does the DisplayFusion "move to next monitor" button stay with the window, or does it lag behind? I'm wondering if the window isn't getting hooked properly, even though the log seems to indicate that it is.

Thanks!
