Wallpapers and switching monitors

Hello,

I frequently use the Windows' displayswitch.exe (Windows button + P on your keyboard) to switch the picture between my TV and monitors. For the first time, I tested the wallpaper feature of DisplayFusion and noticed it doesn't seem to change the wallpaper when display output is switched. I also tried to use -wallpaperloadprofile for reloading the wallpaper, but it doesn't work. Opening the wallpaper settings and clicking apply works. I'm running Windows 7 64-bit and DisplayFusion v3.4.1 Beta 12.

It'd be awesome if wallpapers were cycled when you switch the displays you're using. Before I've had all black wallpaper so I haven't noticed this, but now because my resolution differs on TV and the monitors, I need to use different wallpapers for each. Also, it looks nice when the wallpaper doesn't stay the same.

You can certainly do this. There are a few steps but once it's setup it should work great.
  • Create Wallpaper Profiles for each display configuration: http://www.displayfusion.com/Help/#wallpaper
  • Save each display configuration as a Monitor Profile: http://www.displayfusion.com/Help/#monitorconfig
  • Assign the Wallpaper Profiles to the Monitor Profiles: http://www.displayfusion.com/Help/#monitorconfig-manage
Once setup, DisplayFusion will automatically detect each display configuration that you've saved, and apply the assigned Wallpaper Profiles automatically. You can also assign HotKeys and TitleBar Buttons for the Monitor Profiles

Hope that helps!

Ah, yes, seems to work. Thanks! I just thought it'd be a little more straight forward: just setup the wallpapers you want and they stay on the monitors even if you switch them. Well, knowing how to set it up, it works flawlessly
