Second Monitor Taskbar Faded Out

Alan Wade's profile on WallpaperFusion.com
When I select 'Show icons only' from the Taskbar menu in DisplayFusion the taskbar on my second monitor becomes transparent or faded out.
How can I stop this?

Is your Taskbar Opacity set to 100%? It's on that same page in the Settings dialog.

Yes the opacity is at 100%

Here is two screenshots so you can see what I mean. I am using WindowBlinds but that has never been a problem before or if I have the icon and text showing.

Which WindowBlinds theme are you using? Could you post a link to the download page if it's not one of the standard WindowBlinds themes?

I tried it with quite a few Blinds and they all are the same - translucent or faded. The Blind in the screenshots is called Aztec and the link is: http://www.wincustomize.com/explore/windowblinds/7177/

Thanks for looking into this.

Thanks, here is a couple of shots with a lighter skin so you can see the problem better.

Thanks! I finally got a chance to test this out and was able to confirm this. We've always had some issues with WindowBlinds compatibility, but I've added this to the list and we'll work with the WindowBlinds team to try and resolve the issue.

Since the Beta 9 update I can no longer switch the taskbar icons to icon and text. Now I am stuck with the faded out taskbar as per screenshot above.
Can you advise me how to switch back to icons and text on my second monitor?

From the changelog:

Changed: The "Icons and Text" Taskbar button style is now a per-Taskbar setting and can be configured by right-clicking on each Taskbar

I find myself checking them a couple of times each day. Jon usually updates the in-progress log as he fixes a bug or adds a feature, so I love knowing what's going to be coming out in the next beta release in a couple of days.

The Beta 10 change log is a real biggie, lots of things coming this week.

I see that, and I'm trying to be patient for the release. It's tough!

Lots of changes but sadly none that addresses my issue.

@AWWade: The DF taskbar rendering has changed a bit in the last few betas to fix some DF bugs, and this may affect the way WB handles the skinning. I can't really do much about the way WB skins the DF taskbar though, sorry.

Well I would like to thank you for trying, Although I find it strange the taskbar is displayed fine if I have the icon and text but not if its just the icon, it is something I will get used to.

Thanks Again

No problem, we are keeping the WindowBlinds compatibility issues on our list as we'd like to eventually fix them. If we can, we'll make sure to list it in the change logs

Thanks!
