Start Menu opens behind other windows.

Hi all,

For the past few months my start menu has started opening behind other windows on my secondary monitors.

It doesn't do this on the primary monitor, only on my 2nd and 3rd.

When I have a window open maximised on the 2nd or 3rd monitor and click the start menu, it will open in front for a split second and then be forced to the back. If I have windows open smaller so that it would only cover half the start menu for example, I can see the start menu at the back with the window overlapping and covering part of it.

Does anyone know how to fix this? It's infuriating.

Is it the built-in Windows 10 Start menu, or are you using a third-party start menu app, like Classic Shell?

If you enable the "Ignore Fullscreen" option in the DisplayFusion Settings > Advanced Settings window, does that make any difference at all?

Just tested, unfortunately not.

Ok, could you try updating to the latest 9.7 Beta, and if it's still broken there, could you send me a debug log?

  • On the DisplayFusion Settings > Troubleshooting tab, change the Logging drop-down to "L1: Log Minimal" and click Apply
  • Reproduce the issue and note the time so we'll know where to check in the log file
  • Click the "Export Info to File" button on the Settings > Troubleshooting tab
  • Reply with the file attached
  • Disable debug logging after sending the log

Thanks!

Yeah still does it even with the beta version.

I did the log thing just now so 22:19-22:20.

I did it a few times in a row to make sure it noticed.

God damn, thanks so much.

Just installed and tried it out and it seems to be working fine. Brought the start menu up about 10 times and it worked flawlessly.

Great job much appreciated.
