Taskbar icons messed up. Version 3.0.6

First off, Thank you for this feature to load a task bar on multiple monitors, this along really helps me out and second, thank you for an excellent program so far.

Now I have read a previous post, about the task bar icons, in version 3.0.5 would be a bit off in XP classic. However I'm in Version 3.0.6 I have noticed that when I use two displays and i'm running in windows Vista 64-bit I have a bit of a problem. (See picture below)


Just thought you should know. The main problem is I would always have a small gap or a LARGE gap of some kind on the task bar that is set on my "Primary display".

In this screen capture, I can have 3 on one task bar, but the rest just "jump" onto the other task bar. Also most of the time I see it only display two programs in the "primary" task bar and a big gap between the two programs and the clock is displayed. While all other icons are put on the second task bar.

Either this is a bug or I'm missing something. If I'm missing something, please inform me.

Thank you for your time and efforts.

Sorry, I can't see the image - it's too small. Can you attach the full size image to a reply post? Thanks!

Sure thing, here it is...



NOTE: That's as big as I can make it, unless you know of a way to enlarge after I screen capture it and keep it from getting blurry.

It seems that the image is being scaled/resized down to less than half the original size. Can you post the image in the original resolution? Thanks!

Lets try it differently, shall we? I attached the image to this post; is it better now? It seems that when I upload it to photo bucket, it down sizes it, no matter what I do. So this time I attached it to this message. Try clicking on the attachment to enlarge it to it's original size.

Excellent - the image came through full size this time. I'm afraid I don't see anything wrong with the taskbar buttons in that image though. Where is the gap you were wondering about in your first post?

Perhaps I am missing something, I know in the Settings, I have the three options for the task bar to show relevant windows and just all windows. But what I am looking for is for the task bar to display the programs I opened in order. For example,in my screen shot I show that Microsoft word 2007 is open on the first task bar, then on the second task bar you see multiple Microsoft outlook 2007 windows, firefox and an explore folder displayed in the second. Notice that big gap between the Microsoft word document and the small icons and clock? Now I'm not sure if it has to do with these settings or not, but I am trying to get rid of this gap and have the task bar just display the apps I have opened in the order I have them in. The way it is set up I notice that it either just displays the same apps opened on both task bars. (Cloned is another word for it) Or this way where I would have the gap on the primary task bar.

IN the end I'm trying to have them just display the apps in the order O opened them and have the second task bar as an "extended" bar and nothing fancy.

Again I appreciate you're help.

I'm still not 100% sure what you're after, sorry. It looks like the gap between the Word button and your system clock is because all the other windows have been moved to the other taskbar. If you want to keep all the buttons on the Windows taskbar, and only show the relevant items on the DisplayFusion taskbar, just choose the 2nd taskbar option when configuring the DisplayFusion taskbar. (Setting: "Windows shows all, DF shows relevant")
