Taskbar displaying over full screen video while using secondary monitor

Liam Corcoran
1 discussion post
When I watch a video on my primary monitor and switch to the secondary to perform tasks the taskbar shows over the video, it does this any time I go fullscreen, I disabled the "Show taskbar in front of fullscreen applications when they lose focus" option but it still occurs, is there anything I can do? I have attached a screenshot of the issue.

Sounds similar to an unresolved issue I also have.

@Liam: The option in the settings only affects the DisplayFusion taskbar. Unfortunately it's not possible to force the Windows taskbar to stay behind the full screen video when it loses focus. Sorry

Edit: I made an assumption that it's your Windows taskbar on the monitor that has the video. If it's not, please let me know

Sorry to necro this thread, still having this issue, can confirm firefox works but not chrome. Win 10 64bit build 19041.572, display fusion 9.7, chrome 86.0.4240.75

This only happens if I disable the windows task bar and use DisplayFusion. Windows task bar behavior works as expected, mostly wanting to use displayfusion for the centered icons.

Other applications seem to work but not chrome, tried vlc and that properly draws over the taskbar.

Edit: Google failed me, noticed some other reports mention this and that it's a known issue. Hope it gets addressed soon. Cheers.
