Scheduling Wallpaper Changes

When you've created multiple wallpaper profiles, you can associate them with monitor profiles, but you can also schedule times/events for their application. Follow the directions here to schedule your wallpaper profiles.
For best use of this option, two or more Wallpaper Profiles are needed.
  • Right-click the DisplayFusion tray icon and click "Desktop Wallpaper." You can also access this via the Options tab in Settings.
  • Click the Wallpaper Profile dropdown.
  • If you have two or more Wallpaper Profiles, continue to the directions below. Otherwise, create additional profiles before continuing.
  • On your computer, open the Windows Task Scheduler.
  • Click "Task Scheduler Library" in the left pane, then "Create Basic Task..." in the right pane.
  • In the wizard, enter a name for the task (For example: "DisplayFusion - Load Profile - Work"), then click "Next."
  • Select when you want the task to run, then click "Next." (For example: If you want to load the Sunrise profile every morning, choose "Daily.")
  • Choose the time you want the task to run, then click "Next." (For example: 8:40AM)
    Other options will alter or remove this step.
  • In the Action step, choose "Start a program," then click "Next."
  • In the "Program/Script" text box, enter the full path to DisplayFusionCommand.exe. (For example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\DisplayFusion\DisplayFusionCommand.exe")
    In the "Add arguments" text box, enter
    -wallpaperloadprofile "Profile Name"
    then click "Next." (For example: "
    -wallpaperloadprofile "Work"
    ")
  • Review your settings, then click "Finish."
To schedule additional Wallpaper Profiles, repeat the steps above. To schedule a Wallpaper Profile at random, see this guide: Randomly Load a Wallpaper Profile

I tried this method with the settings > windows logon > "Use the current Desktop Wallpaper image for the Logon Background" checkbox checked. It does not update.

@Garrett: I was able to reproduce that here and have added it to our list to fix up. Thanks!
