Wallpaper Refresh Issue

Here is something else I found while playing an old full screen game. The game resized my screen to 1024x768 - and when I exit the game, wallpaper was not redrawn. So I had empty spaces at the bottom of the screen where wallpaper was not drawn. This is really cosmetic - and nothing critical. Thanks.

Does it redraw when you drag a window over it? Or is it just not resizing it after exiting the game?

It does not repaint the screen even after a window is laid over it. I have to get the next wallpaper to make it proper. Attaching a image that shows the screen. Also, window geometry on 2nd monitor is not maintained. Eg. Firefox running maximized on monitor 2, after game exits, only half of Firefox is showing on the second monitor and it is not in maximized state (i.e. I can maximize it again to get it full screen).

That image shows a vertical piece of screen 1. Also if it helps,

DF version 3.3.1
Windows 7 64bit

.NET versions

Do you have the "Fix my wallpaper without prompting" setting enabled in DisplayFusion? You can find this setting in the DisplayFusion Wallpaper window by clicking the "Wallpaper Settings" button.

I checked the Fix my Wallpaper - now it automatically switches to the next random wallpaper. Thanks for that hint Jon. However, the problem with application shifting on my second monitor still remains. Actually I started the game twice - and every time Firefox (again on my secondary monitor) moved 1/2 screen width. First time it was at .5 screen location - rest was out of screen. Next time it was approximately .75 screen location and the rest was out of the screen. Not sure if I could explain that properly. :(

Hmmm... this doesn't seem to be a DisplayFusion problem - happens even when I quit DisplayFusion. You can probably ignore it. Thanks for your help Jon and Keith.

Excellent, glad to hear it!

Edit: Glad to hear the "Fix wallpaper automatically" fixed the wallpaper issue :)
