Scheduling DisplayFusion Settings Backups

To schedule automatic DisplayFusion settings backups, follow the steps below:

  • Navigate to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Task Scheduler.
  • Select "Task Scheduler Library" from the left pane.
  • Click "Create Basic Task" from the right pane.
  • Give the task a name, i.e. "DisplayFusion Backup," then click Next.




  • Select the task schedule (Daily, Weekly, or Monthly), then click Next.




  • Choose the specifics of the schedule, then click Next.




  • Choose "Start a Program," then click Next.




  • Click Browse, then locate DisplayFusionCommand.exe (usually in "C:\Program Files (x86)\DisplayFusion\DisplayFusionCommand.exe"). In the "Add arguments" box, enter "-settingsbackup" (without the quotes), then click Next.




  • Click Finish, then test it out by selecting it in the list and clicking "Run" in the right pane. If it worked, you should have a new DisplayFusion backup file in the Documents\DisplayFusion Backups folder.

It's something we may add in a future version, but figured we'd share this solution in the meantime

You can easily add an advanced setting that add / remove this scheduled task automatically in windows.

In this way, basic users won't need to do the "hard steps" to backup DF settings.
