Hi DF

I bought a new wide monitor. I install DF, set the "splits and Padding" according to the picture.

How do I set the middle virtual monitor as primary (2000x1080)?
thx

You can use the "Monitor Configuration: Force Primary Monitor ID" option in the DisplayFusion Settings > Advanced Settings to do this. Set it to 1.2, apply the settings, then restart DisplayFusion and you should be all set.

Thanks!

I see that this featuer has not made it to the current version; any reason why? This was posted by someone else a year ago, would be great to be able to force primary split monitor so the single taskbar shows up where I want it, multi taskbar does not solve anything for me except confuse and repeats itself.

Hi Shannon,

This setting should be in the DisplayFusion Advanced Settings window, under the "Monitor Configuration" section.

Are you currently running DisplayFusion v9.8?

Thanks!

I've got the exact same monitor setup as Wallis and it's not letting me Force Primary Monitor ID to 1.1. The middle one is primary no matter what number I put in

edit: Made another profile to test, 21:9 on monitor 1.2. I tried with default values and 1.1 as Primary Monitor ID. Windows 11 did not care either way and defaulted the primary monitor to 1.2. It seems to always pick the larger split.

Sure, here you are.

I've reverted some setting I had when I made the post so let me know if you need me to change anything back.

I guess I'll explain my use case for this. I want the primary 'monitor' to be have a displayfusion taskbar so that I can disable it while playing borderless fullscreen games. I'm having to autohide the taskbar since the largest 'monitor' will automatically become the primary and it's become annoying accidentally showing the taskbar and clicking out it, making me lose focus.

I've tested this out here and was able to confirm the issue. The Windows 11 taskbar isn't respecting DisplayFusion's "please move to the left" call :D

We've put this on our list to look into to see if it's something we can fix up.

Thanks!
