Taskbar in foreground of maximized browser

Robert Allen Fenske Jr
6 discussion posts
I have a two monitor setup that utilizes two monitors, with the primary on the right and a secondary on the left. Browser windows that get maximized on the secondary monitor have the taskbar over and blocking the buttons on the bottom portion of the maximized window. This occurs with Chrome (in the picture), Firefox and Edge. This does not occur on the primary window with browsers. In addition, this does not occur with the one game I tried (Binding of Isaac), but I always run games on my primary monitor so I wouldn't notice and my anecdotal test set of 1 shows that without a doubt this doesn't occur anywhere else except for web browsers ^_^. I think it goes without saying that my desired outcome would be that maximizing the window does puts the taskbar behind the maximized window, which I totally believe it used to do on both monitors, but I cannot remember distinctly that it did. This has been ongoing for about the last year or two and I am mostly indifferent to it, I just finally got around to making a post. Let me know if you need any additional follow up.

Hi Robert,

Can you try updating to our latest beta and see if the issue persists?

Let me know how that works!

Hi Robert,

If you open up the DisplayFusion settings window and head to the taskbar tab, do you have "Show taskbar in front of full screen applications when they lose focus" enabled?

Thanks!

I did not.

I turned it on and tried to maximize a window, but still had the same problem. Same after a restart of DisplayFusion and then a restart of chrome.

Hi Robert,

Strange, do you have the position of that taskbar set to Automatic? If you change it to Bottom, does the issue persist?

Thanks!

It was set to automatic.

Changing it to Bottom causes no change. Restarting DF and Chrome also result in no change.

Hi Robert,

Could you send me over a backup of your settings? You can grab them in the options tab of the DisplayFusion settings window, using the "Export Settings" button.

Thanks!

Sorry for the delay. Attached should be the current settings.

I also am having issues where when I maximize windows inside a split the bottom of the window goes under the windows taskbar.

I'm on 9.7.2 (Beta

I currently have the multi-monitor Taskbar option turned off as I only have the one monitor.

Hello,

@RobertAllenFenskeJr Thank you for sending that over. If you open up your advanced settings window in DisplayFusion, it looks like you have "Ignore Full Screen Windows" enabled. If you disable that, does the issue persist?

@JasonFleming Could you send me a copy of your troubleshooting info? Here are the steps:

  • Open the Settings > Troubleshooting tab
  • Click the "Export Info to File" button
  • Reply with the file attached

Thanks!

One thing I will mention is that I was playing around with auto hide on the taskbar turned on at one point. It is currently off. Maximizing windows feels likes its behaving as if its still on when maximizing in a split. If I use the windows snap to edge it behaves correctly.

Mr. Muhlethaler, that has produced the desired outcome! I will say I do not remember ever altering that feature, as DF does what I want it to do pretty much by default, but it is what it is. Thanks for the help!

As near as I can tell I have.

"Show Taskbar in front of full screen application when they lose focus" is off
"Enable Multi-Monitor Taskbars" is off

Hi Jason,

Is this only happening with specific applications? Does it happen when you maximize an application to a split, or when you set an application to full screen within a split?

Thanks!

This appear to be with any application. If move Spotify or a chrome window into a split and then hit the maximize button next to the X close button it fills the split but the bottom goes under the taskbar.

So in Spotify the song progress is no longer visible because its covered.

Hi Jason,

Could you send me over a screenshot of your monitor with a window hidden below the taskbar? Could you also send me over a screenshot of your monitor configuration window?

Thanks!

Here is a screenshot with a browser window, spotify and windows media player all maximized in different splits. And another with my monitor config and current split configuration.

Hi Jason,

Thanks for sending those over.

Interesting, it looks like it's happening on the Windows taskbar. If you close down DisplayFusion, does the issue persist?

Thanks!

If I exit display fusion the windows properly end up sized above the taskbar. Though they take up the entire screen as you would expect.

At one point awhile ago I had been playing around with auto hiding of the windows task bar (auto-hide has been off since then) and I think that is about when this issue started happening.

Hi Jason,

How about if you have DisplayFusion running, but no splits enabled. Does the issue persist?

Thanks!

So I went into "Splits and Padding" Deleted the two other splits and then Auto Filled the third. After applying that it appears things work correctly for that setup.

I then went back into "Splits and Padding" did one Horizontal Split by clicking the button. After applying that the issue came back.

Hi Jason,

Could you send me over a debug log? Here are the steps:

  • On the DisplayFusion Settings > Troubleshooting tab, change the Logging drop-down to "L1: Log Minimal" and click Apply
  • Reproduce the issue (if you can reproduce the issue with splits, as well as it working without the splits that would be great) and note the time so we'll know where to check in the log file
  • Click the "Export Info to File" button on the Settings > Troubleshooting tab
  • Reply with the file attached
  • Disable debug logging after sending the log

This should hopefully be what you are looking for.

I set the debug level to minimal.
Cleared the debug log. (10:20 Am ish)
Applied the single "split" maximized spotify (worked as expected)
For good measure hit maximize again (to make it smaller) then maximize again.

I then went into Splits and Padding and created a Horizontal Split
Applied it and maximized spotify (it went under the task bar)
For good measure I did it again.

The debug info should be attached now.

Hi Jason,

Thanks for sending that over. It looks like the windows are completely ignoring the Windows taskbar in the work area. Could you send me over a backup of your settings? You can grab them in the options tab of the DisplayFusion settings window, using the "Export Settings" button.

Thanks!
