Win 10 Taskbar Blur

Alan Wade's profile on
With DisplayFusion running on Win 10 Bld 10074 there is no blur behind the taskbar. Will this be added at a later date?

For some reason, my Win 10 10074 doesn't have the blur behind, even on the Windows taskbar. I'm wondering if it's maybe because I've upgraded instead of done a clean install. I'm going to put a clean install on a test machine and see what I can find out

Found it! Apparently for some installations, it's disabled in the registry by default. Enabled it, and I see what you're referring to now. We should be able to add it at some point, yes

Whats the registry key Keith and thanks for digging into it.

It's the "EnableBlurBehind" value in this key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\Personalize

I already have that set to blur but as I said it only blurs the main screen.

Sorry, I think there was some confusion. I was talking about that registry key because it was disabled, so the blur wasn't even showing up on my main Windows taskbar.

I got that enabled so that we can see what it looks like, and I've put it on our list of things to do for the DF taskbar in Windows 10

The blur behind seems to be gone for me in Win 10 10162. Is it also gone for you?

I know I am rectifying a zombie here but I just wanted to say that the blur on the taskBar is definitely still there. I may be a little OCD here but it drives me nuts that I can't make the DisplayFusion taskbars match the Win10 native.

I even added the EnableBlurBehind key in hopes I could just disable it on the native taskbar.

I have taken a screenshot to show the difference. DisplayFusion taskbar is on the right, while native one is on the left.
