Startup delay

On my work machine, I don't have DF start automatically, so it's seems kind of strange that it takes so long to load when you start it. I believe this is to address some people's problem with it starting up too fast (for them) on boot, but when you start it manually, you think something's gone wrong (because it seems to not be starting) and you're apt to keep clicking the icon to get it going... (just an observation)

Does it take a long time for the icon to appear in the system tray? Or are you referring to the delay before changing the wallpaper after it starts?

Sorry for the delay. I set it to start with the task bar, so it takes a long time before I see the DF task bar show. Long enough that I frequently hit the icon again because I didn't thing it started..

Yes, that is probably true then. I wait a few seconds after DF has started before showing the taskbars. This gives a booting system a few extra seconds to startup, and also allows all the DF internal processes to startup. I'm not sure there is much I can do to speed up the taskbars appearing.

I usually have it set to start on boot, so it's not noticeable, but on my work machine I start it manually. No biggie.

I'll mark the topic as complete, for now. If there's anything I can do to improve the startup times I definitely will, although I also want to try and avoid DisplayFusion monopolizing system resources during boot-up.

In retrospect, I think you've done a good thing here. A lot of systems have so much loading at once, it nearly hangs the system. Having DF delay a bit makes a lot of sense.
