When using RDP in a certain configuration the taskbar stays on top of the RDP window. I have the attached monitor configuration and I use my RDP with screen 1 and 2 with 1 being my main monitor having the "original" taskbar and two having a DF taskbar which stays on top of the window. Been having that issue since always so I wanted to report it. I'll attach my debug info as well but I can't attach two files in one post.

We are aware of this issue when RDP spans multiple monitors. I've noted down your contact information, so if we have anything further on it going forward, we'll be sure to let you know.

Thanks!

Ah! Alright. Is it related to the bug that if you restart the explorer.exe it will go behind the taskbar until I reboot? I wanted to write about it as well but I plain forgot when writing the first post

Ah, that's not related but we are aware of that issue on Windows 11. We were having trouble reproducing it on our end, but it looks like we can by restarting explorer. Hopefully that gives us some hints on how to fix it up, thanks!

Hello,

The windows dropping behind taskbars issue should be fixed up in the latest beta, available here: https://www.displayfusion.com/Download/Beta. Please let me know if you still run into any trouble after updating.

Thanks!
