Taskbar force-minimizing full screen game

Recently I have been having issues where the taskbar will force-minimize the game I am playing. I have had DF for years and this has only recently started happening the last few weeks. I uninstalled DF for about a week to see if that was truly the cause, and have had no issues in that time. I reinstalled DF tonight and within the first 5 minutes this happened again. This seems to be specific to full screen games/videos.

I have attached a clean L3 log in which I:

Cleared log
Enabled L3
Clicked the item on my taskbar a couple times
Disabled logging.

So this shouldn't have too much extra 'garbage' in the log.

I have also attached a short clip of me clicking on the taskbar, the screen going black (Game loads in my view) then back to the taskbar. If you need anything else from me, please let me know.

Hello,

Could you try to open up Display Fusion Settings > Compatibility > Add in the game, and check off "Disable Application Hooks".

Let me know how that works for you.

Thanks!

Still happens, clip attached.

I didn't look extensively, but is there an installer for the previous version of DF? It has only been recent that this has been happening, was wanting to test with the previous version as well to make sure 9.7 isn't the cause.

Hello,

You definitely can give it a shot. Here's a link to our old version 8.1.2: https://www.displayfusion.com/OldVersion/

You could also try updating to our beta, if your not already on it. Here's the link for that as well: https://www.displayfusion.com/Download/Beta/

Keep me posted!
