## Question on Monitor Profiles and Taskbars

 Chris G160 discussion posts I use my Win10 laptop with 2 different docking stations (each with 2 monitors). I have been setting up pinned shortcuts and noticed when I start my laptop on each dock the taskbar settings are managed independently (i.e a shortcut I create on one dock does not appear when I start my PC connected to the other dock). However, I don't seem to see any profiles created in DF. Why is this? I would have thought my DF taskbar settings would be persistent across both. I've attached my settings file. Thanks. • Attachment [protected]: DisplayFusion Backup (2019-02-11 @ 07-29, 9.4.99.101).reg [64,986 bytes] Feb 14, 2019 (modified Feb 14, 2019)  • #1 The taskbar settings are stored by monitor ID. Could you send me two copies of the DisplayFusion Troubleshooting info, one from each docking station?

Interestingly I seemed to have lost the shortucts I created on Dock 2 originally and it seems the ones created on Dock 1 are persistent. • Attachment [protected]: DisplayFusionDebugInfo Dock 1.zip [48,785 bytes] • Attachment [protected]: DisplayFusionDebugInfo Dock 2.zip [92,821 bytes] Feb 25, 2019  • #3 Thanks! It does look like the monitor IDs get swapped on the docks, so that would be causing the inconsistent behaviour. In the backup that you included in your original post, I'm not seeing any configured shortcuts at all. Could you export your settings again and attach them? Feb 25, 2019  • #4 Chris G160 discussion posts Ok attaching again. • Attachment [protected]: DisplayFusion Backup (2019-02-25 @ 15-38, 9.4.99.101).reg [264,008 bytes] Feb 25, 2019  • #5 Thanks, I can see the shortcuts now! How often do you add/edit the shortcuts on the taskbar? I can write up some instructions on how to export the settings from the one monitor ID and restore them for the other monitor ID so that you can do that any time you updates some shortcuts if you like? Feb 26, 2019 (modified Feb 26, 2019)  • #6 Chris G160 discussion posts Thanks Keith. I am still making edits across both so if there is an easy way to keep them in sync that would be helpful. No rush though! Feb 27, 2019  • #7 Ok no worries, I'll hopefully have something for you tomorrow Feb 27, 2019  • #8 Ok, give this a try: Backup your DisplayFusion Settings (Settings > Options > Export), just to be safe :) Save and extract the attached script somewhere on your system. At a command prompt, run: powershell -ExecutionPolicy Bypass C:\path\to\script\CopyTaskbarSettingsToAnotherMonitor.ps1 You'll be prompted for the source and target monitor ID. The source is the ID of the monitor that you changed the taskbar settings on (e.g. if the DF taskbar is currently on monitor 2, and you change a setting on it, then enter 2 as the source). The destination is the ID of the other monitor (e.g. 1). Hope that helps! • Attachment: CopyTaskbarSettingsToAnotherMonitor.zip [858 bytes] Feb 28, 2019 (modified Feb 28, 2019)  • #9 Was this helpful?
