Task Bar "all taskbars show all windows" will not work

The taskbar on monitor 2 will not show all windows-rather it always shows relevant windows. My display adapter is ATI Radeon 5700 and I am running Windows 7 64 bit with Windows 7 Basic screen saver. I have changed the screen saver to Widows 7 Aero and the problem still occurs. How can I fix this? Attached a Word doc showing all of the troubleshooting information.

Thank you

We've made quite a bit of improvements to the taskbars in the latest beta versions. Could you download 3.3.1 Beta 16 from the link below and give it a try? I had another customer with similar issues and after updating to 3.3.1 Beta 16 he was all set.

I installed the beta version recommended but I still have the same problem. I am not sure if I understand what should be shown if the taskbar mode is "All taskbars show all windows". What I want to have shown on monitor 2 is the same taskbar as is shown on monitor 1. Is this what "All taskbars show all windows"? If the response is yes perhaps you should use the term "All taskbars show all icons" instead of "All taskbars show all windows".

Thanks

The setting means that all of the taskbars will show the icons for all of the currently running applications, not that the DisplayFusion taskbar will show the same pinned icons. Does that help clarify or did I misread your question?

Thanks!

Yes, that is what the taskbar does. Can you tell me what a "relevant window"is?

Thanks

Sure!

A relevant window would be one that is on the same monitor as the taskbar which is showing the window. For example, if you had the relevant windows setting enabled:

  • Notepad open on Monitor 2 would only show on the taskbar on Monitor 2
  • Windows Media Player open on Monitor 1 would only show on the taskbar on Monitor 1

If possible, could you post a screenshot of both of your screens showing the issue you're having?

Thanks!
