Taskbar is covering application

Peter Kronenberg37117

I have an active application that is showing a pop-up. The pop-up is being displayed *behind* the DisplayFusion taskbar but in *front* of the native Windows taskbar.
I have tried changing the option Show taskbar in front of full screen applications when they lose focus, although it doesn't really apply since this wasn't a full-screen application and it hadn't lost focus.
I couldn't find any other options that might apply.

I am now having the opposite problem, where my application pop-up appears in *front* of the DisplayFusion taskbar, but *behind* the Windows taskbar

Hi Peter,

If you exit DisplayFusion, does that pop-up still appear behind the Windows taskbar?

Thanks!

Strange, I can only reproduce the original issue. What version of IntelliJ are you running?

Thanks!

I'm running IntelliJ 2022.1. Just went to that version about 2 weeks ago, but pretty sure I was seeing this with prior versions

i am having a similar issue in that my applications when taken to full screen appear behind the taskbar on the secondary monitor, i have fiddled with the settings and it is still doing it, i have resorted to making the taskbar on the secondary monitor autohide, but i wish i didnt have to do that

@PeterKronenberg37117 Okay interesting, I've bumped this up on our list to look into. We'll look into the original issue, and if we can get it fixed up we'll see if this new issue still happens for you as well.

@JimOlson2 Do you have "Show taskbar in front of full screen applications when they lose focus" enabled in the DisplayFusion Settings > Taskbar tab?

Thanks!

no, that check box is clear.
and i have also tried setting the alternate start menues will be ignored, incase there was a windows update that did something

Ah, you might be experiencing the last point in this post: https://www.displayfusion.com/Discussions/View/windows-11-known-issues/?ID=3c5ca328-ea80-440c-84cc-a67a1acf232e

Does this happen with non-full screen windows as well?

Thanks!
