Hello! Hope this is the rigfht place to post about this.

I would like to be able to add URL shortcut on the displayfusion custom taskbars.

But it only seem to work on the main taskbar [creating url through Chrome > More Tools > Create Shortcut > Open as a window.
I want this feature specifically, because i get more window space at the monitor division I'm currently using.

Check imagem bellow.

1:2 is using the shortcut the right way, but once I PIN it, it changes to a normal chrome icon (that open generic chrome home), It's on 1:5 for visual reference of difference and shortcut conflict {i've made the right shortcut from inside Displayfusion taskbar shortcut url menu}.

Thanks,
You guys rock solid!

On the DisplayFusion taskbar you need to make a couple of edits because there are some details of those Chrome app shortcuts that DisplayFusion can't read automatically when creating the shortcut. Could you attach a screenshot of the shortcut properties for the one on the Windows taskbar?

Hi, here's the screenshot

The destiny's command is as follow:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --profile-directory=Default --app-id=dppcknkccigcbaebaeocblgghikhadgc

I am also sending the SS of the way i make those shortcuts,

Thanks.

Thanks! So after you right-click the button on the DF taskbar and choose "Pin this program to taskbar," try this out:

  • Right-click the new shortcut and choose "Edit this Pinned Item"
  • Set the "Command Line Arguments" to: --profile-directory=Default --app-id=dppcknkccigcbaebaeocblgghikhadgc
  • Click OK, then select it in the list and choose "Icon > Set Custom Icon" (you'll need to have a PNG file for the custom icon, I usually use Google Image Search to find a good one)

1 - Is there any way to remove the original taskbar or change it into displayfusion taskbar [without causing problems]?
2 - The icons I download appear behing my left taskbar (check my desktop on screenshot 1), is there a way around?

Thanks again.

You can replace the Windows taskbar, it's not a supported feature, but here are the steps: https://www.displayfusion.com/Discussions/View/anyway-to-make-the-df-pro-taskbar-override-the-windows-taskbar/?ID=3d0cad5b-2ab0-4b2d-acbc-cd2b45389c38#6

Hope that helps!

Hi again,

check this: I've pinned onenote metro app on the taskbar, but once i click it, it will open in another window, instead of turning the pinned shortcut itself into onenote window.

What I've tried:
1 - change it to a non-metro shortcup, but it would not open.
2 - changed to web version, it solve my issue with your last tip, but the metro version is faster and have more funcions.

Thanks.

This is a known issue for all universal apps that we unfortunately haven't been able to resolve yet. We'll definitely let you know when we do get it all sorted out though :)

Thanks!
