Currently running 10.1.2 Steam on Windows 10 x64 22H2.
I've had a 3 monitor setup for a while, at least since using DFv9.
My 2nd monitor is on a HDMI switcher as I use that with my work laptop on occasion.

This is my standard montior layout on my PC:

On my normal PC 3 monitor setup, I have the windows taskbar on Montor 1, and DF taskbars on monitors 2 and 3.
Taskbars on monitors 2 and 3 both have different pinned programs.

Mon2:

Mon3:

Previously, if I switched monitor 2 to be connected to my laptop by using the HDMI switch, my PC would revert to using only 2 monitors, Mon 1 and 3. When I switched back, Monitor 2 would re-appear and all was as before.

Since a recent update, pinned programs are now not functioning as before.
If I do the switch now, when I switch Monitor 2 back into my system, the pinned programs for Mon2 are replaced with those from Mon3, so I end up with both Mon2 and Mon 3 taskbars looking like this:

Mon2:

Mon3:

Each taskbar is seperate, I can delete a pinned icon off Mon2 and it stays on Mon3 so its not like its displaying the same toolbar on both monitors.

Whatever recent change has been made seems to be overwriting or losing pinned program info, as up until recently I have had 0 issues with pinned programs changing when disconnecting the monitor by using the HDMI switch.

Could you send me over a debug log? Here are the steps:

  • On the DisplayFusion Settings > Troubleshooting tab, change the Logging drop-down to "L1: Log Minimal" and click Apply
  • Reproduce the issue 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

Annoyingly, it has started behaving itself after 2 weeks of doing it constantly.
I have left logging on and when it occurs again, I will upload the log with the relevent time stamp.

Thanks for sending that over. Could you send me two copies of your troubleshooting info, one when the taskbars are set correctly, and another when they are incorrect? Here are the steps:

  • Open the Settings > Troubleshooting tab
  • Click the "Export Info to File" button
  • Reply with the file attached

Actually could you send me a copy while you have your laptop connected instead of monitor 2 as well?

Also, once the Monitor 2 toolbar has lost its pinned programs and been duplicated with Monitor 3, those new pins persist after a reboot, so the only way to get it back is to remove the pins on Monitor 2 and manually set the pinned programs up again every time it occurs.

We have a change coming in our next beta to help with the taskbar ID detection, we'll let you know once it's released to test out.

Thanks!

Thanks, was there a change in the most recent version that caused this then?
