Hi, I've been a displayfusion user for years, thanks for keeping this project up to date!
With Windows 11 I've been paying more attention to using the multi-monitor taskbar feature than before I'm curious if these features are already available or in the pipeline:
  • Having secondary taskbar preserve the Windows 11 look and feel
  • Ability to permanently show X number of tray icons (currently only shows clock on the secondary taskbar

Thanks!

Hello,

1) Our latest beta includes all of our updates for Windows 11, which should have it looking pretty close, although we are working through the full list.

2) All the tray icons should be appearing, could you send me over a screenshot of your taskbar?

Thanks!

I've attached the screenshot below. As you can see, all the tray icons are "hidden" by default.

Thanks for sending that over. Could you send me a copy of your troubleshooting info? Here are the steps:
  • Open the Settings > Troubleshooting tab
  • Click the "Export Info to File" button
  • Reply with the file attached

It also looks like there are two taskbars overlapping. Do you have the Windows Multi-Monitor Taskbars disabled, in the Windows Taskbar Settings?

Thanks!

Yes, as far as I'm aware the default windows taskbar is disabled. However your observation is correct, when I right click on the taskbar, I do see another instance nested behind which is odd.

Oh my bad, ElevenClock was still running in the background. I've disabled it from launching on startup now.

However my initial points still stand - aesthetically it still looks different (also the clock doesn't pop up with the calendar when its clicked)

The tray icons are all docked by default, I was curious if there was a way to force some to show by default

Hello,

As mentioned we are still working through our full list of changes for Windows 11, but if there's something specific your thinking of, I can check to see if we have it on our list.

I'm not too sure what clock pop-out you're referring to. Can you send me a screenshot of the one you're seeing on the Windows taskbar?

Unfortunately we don't have control over what tray icons are shown, it's just the ones copied from the Windows taskbar.

Thanks!

For instance on the default Win 11 UI, when I click on the clock a calendar pops up.

I can also see the network and audio icons on the taskbar on the bottom right hand corner. Was hoping to be able to configure what was shown or at least show 1-2 icons. All good if its not an existing feature.

As an aside, perhaps this is a bug - it isn't just the clock that is unresponsive, but the start menu on the displayfusion taskbar is also unresponsive to physical clicks.

Have you updated to our beta? Both of those issues should be fixed up there, so I'll attach the link here: https://www.displayfusion.com/Download/Beta/

Thanks!
