Problem with wallpaper on different resolution monitors

Hi everyone, I have a minor problem that I'd like to see if there's any way to get around. I have two monitors; monitor 1 is 1280x800 and monitor 2 is 1440x900. I use the same 1440x900 wallpaper on both monitors and on monitor 1 I have it set to "Fit best and maintain aspect ratio (no clipping)". This works fine when I'm using both monitors, however I sometimes like to use only monitor 2. So whenever I disable monitor 1 and make monitor 2 my primary (and only) monitor, the wallpaper looks like this:



If I open up the wallpaper settings in DisplayFusion and just click OK, it fixes the issue and the wallpaper is displayed properly. I was wondering however if there are any settings I can play around with that will make DisplayFusion make the necessary adjustments automatically. Many thanks in advance.

tom,

In DF Settings for Wallpapers, underneath Warn me if my wallpaper needs adjusting there is antoher setting to Fix my wallpaper without prompting.

Have you tried enabling this (of course you'll need to enable the first in order to enable the second...)?
I am I.

Unfortunately, I don't have the pro version of DisplayFusion so that setting is not available. However, DisplayFusion doesn't warn me that my wallpaper needs adjusting despite having the Warn me if my wallpaper needs adjusting option enabled so I'm not sure it would automatically fix the wallpaper even if I could enable the Fix my wallpaper without prompting option.

Whoops - never considered that was a pro feature only, my apologies.

However, since you're not getting a warning, I suspect that when you kill the monitor in windows settings, it is not registering correctly with DF. I am sure that when Jon gets back from he hiatus he will take a look at this topic and see if there is a way to better integrate DF with windows re: monitor settings.

@John: You are correct, this is a Pro feature.

@tom: Sometimes the notification bubbles don't always show in the system tray, but that doesn't mean DisplayFusion won't automatically fix your wallpaper. I would suggest giving the 30-day free trial a try.

Thanks!
