Start menu disappears on 2nd monitor if application maximised

Hi,
Using multi monitor taskbar and having a bit of an odd issue with the start menu on 2nd monitor disappearing when start button clicked or windows key pressed.
It only happens if there is something maximised on the 2nd monitor, I've made a video to show the issue: https://youtu.be/M9Jj0QSnc_g https://youtu.be/M9Jj0QSnc_g

I have tried the "Invoke Start Menu Using Click Instead of Windows Key" but this hasnt made a difference.
I also run Classic Shell and have run both DF and CS together for ages and they have never interfered with eachother.
I'm not sure exactly when this started, probably within the last 2-3 months

Debug log attached

System:
Windows 10 x64 v1809
2 monitors run from GTX 10870ti, 1080p 60hz on both
Nvidia Driver 419.67
Display Fusion (steam) 9.5 (Beta 1)

Does that only happen if you have the full screen game on the Primary, and a maximized window on the second monitor? Or does it happen with a maximized window on the second monitor, regardless of what's running on the Primary monitor?

That's a good point

It happens if I have a game running on monitor 1 but not if i have an application/exploer windows maximised on monitor 1.

I double checked the settings of Elite Dangerous (the game used in the video) and it was actually set to borderless not fullscreen.
I tried with another game (Tharsis) and ran it windowed and that also makes the menu vanish.

Ok, interesting! So if the game is true full screen, it's ok, but if it's borderless or windowed then this issue occurs?

Yes that seems to be the case, as when it is fullscreen, you have to alt-tab out to free the cursor to move it onto the 2nd monitor.
When borderless or windowed you can move the mouse freely and it then occurs.

Ok, great! I'll do some testing here tomorrow and see if I can reproduce the same behaviour.

One more question: If you enable the "Ignore Full Screen Windows" option in the DisplayFusion Settings > Advanced Settings window, does that make this issue go away?

No, this has made no difference

Ok, no worries. I was finally able to reproduce this here so I've added it to our list to fix up.

Thanks!

Any idea when the fix for this will be implemented?
