I have a single monitor split into two with displayfusion. The notification area on one left has the notification area (clock, volume settings, etc) randomly dissapear and re-appear.
This seems to stop if I restart windows explorer, for a little while, but then it returns.
Any suggestions on how to stop this?

That's really strange, I've never run into that before! Does it stop if you exit DisplayFusion?

If I change my monitor profile to not have my single monitor split into two, it stops. If I turn exit displayfusion it also stops.

Ok, strange! Could you send me a debug log for this issue?

  • On the DisplayFusion Settings > Troubleshooting tab, change the Logging drop-down to "L1: Log Minimal" and click Apply
  • Reproduce the issue and note the time so we'll know where to check in the log file
  • Click the "Export Info to File" button on the Settings > Troubleshooting tab
  • Reply with the file attached
  • Disable debug logging after sending the log

I've attached the file below. The issue was ongoing as I started the logging, and contintued until I closed the log. I let the log run for a couple of minutes, but let me know if you need a longer log.

Thanks! How frequently was it opening and closing? Can you give me an estimate of how many seconds in between each one?

It varies fairly widely. It would be stable for a few minutes and then open and close for a few minutes, cycling ever 10-15 seconds. It often seems to happen when I move programs between monitors, or updates happen in the notificaiton area, like slack or email notifications.

Thanks! I can see some messages in the log about DisplayFusion failing to get info from the Windows taskbar. To confirm, it's the Windows taskbar on the left monitor that's having this issue?

Correct, the left monitor.

Ok, I wonder if it's the split taskbar that's causing this specifically. The next time this happens, could you try disabling the "Taskbar" checkbox in the "Use these features with split monitors" section of the DisplayFusion Monitor Configuration window to see if it stops after it's disabled?

If I turn off the taskbar checkbox, it stops happening.

Ok, this might be a long shot, but could you try disabling the "Transparency effects" option in Windows Settings > Personalization > Colours?

I tried that and it didn't seem to work. I uninstalled DisplayFusion and re-installed it. This seems to have solved the issue, or at least it hasn't started back up again.

Ok, interesting! Glad to hear it's good at the moment, definitely let me know if you run into it again.

Thanks!
