Switching external monitors when I click on the icon on the bottom bar

How do I set DisplayFusion not to switch an image or video on an external monitor to a Windows screen when I click a thumbnail icon in the bottom bar?

I'm not quite sure what you mean. Are you just left-clicking the taskbar button for a program and it's moving it to another monitor when you do that?

On the external monitor one I have the video playing and on the other PowerPoint monitor, when I click on the icon and thumbnail in the bottom bar of the main monitor, both the video and PowerPoint are lost and the windows screen appears. When I leave the mouse from the thumbnail, the video and PowerPoint return. It's disturbing, it bothers me. How to set it, how to prevent it? I have an Intel UHD Graphics 630 graphics card, a colleague said that I would probably have to use another one, I was looking for some software options. Thank you very much.

Ah ok, thanks! It sounds like what you're describing is the Windows "Aero Peek" feature. This page describes how to disable that: https://www.howtogeek.com/66549/stupid-geek-tricks-disable-windows-7-aero-peek-in-two-clicks/

Hope that helps!

Thank you very much in advance for the advice, unfortunately I had "Aero Peak" off. A colleague advised me to set up a Manage virtual desktop https://community.windows.com/en-us/stories/virtual-desktop-windows-10, but it also doesn't work. So I don't know what to do. Don't have any advice yet? Thank you.

It's possible the Aero Peek feature is controlled separately for the "show desktop" and the "hover over app taskbar button" places. Are you referring to window previews on the Windows taskbar or the DisplayFusion one? Thanks!
