(Windows 11) Snap Layouts not working with Multi-Monitor Taskbars.

Hello. I'm aware that Windows 11 is not currently a supported platform for DisplayFusion and I am also aware that Windows 11 makes changes and imposes limitations in regard to taskbar handling. Nonetheless, the Snap Layouts window appears briefly and then closes on secondary monitors when I have Multi-Monitor Taskbars enabled. I have installed DisplayFusion 10.0 Beta 3 to see if this issue would be fixed and it was not fixed. Thank you very much.

I was looking through another Windows 11 troubleshooting thread on these forums and selecting "Taskbar Mode as Windows taskbar shows all windows, DisplayFusion shows relevant windows" fixes this issue.

Hi Steven,

Glad to hear you found a work around! We have this on our list to look into as well.

Thanks!

No problem! In 10.0 Beta 3, I couldn't find a way to disable setting the secondary taskbars as my accent color.

Hi Steven,

That accent colour issue is also on our list.

Thanks!

I followed the advice and selected "Windows taskbar shows all windows, DisplayFusion shows relevant windows"
My problem on Windows 11 is that when I select "Enable Multi-Monitor Taskbars":
1) the DF start button no longer works; and
2) when I click the Windows 11 start button, I can launch a pinned app - but the start menu disappears when I right click a pinned app or when I select "All apps".

Hi Ron,

1) This should be fixed up in our latest beta

2) I can't seem to reproduce this in our latest beta either, so it might be fixed up there as well :)

Thanks!

This is still an issue in Beta 6. Yes I can change the taskbar Mode, but I prefer each monitor to only show relevant windows. Is there plans to fix this?

This is still an issue as of beta 15.

The workaround does work, just don't like having all the windows on that taskbar when they are on other screens.

Just realised that this was a problem with Multi monitor taskbars. I was having plenty of performance problems and de-activated them and used Windows 11 taskbar instead which misses the helpful jumplists. But now I realized also that this is a problem that has not been fixed for 1 year now

Also having this issue right now. How is this not fixed after all this time?

This 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!

I'll be honest I've pretty much given up on dislay fusion, way too many bugs still. I think the only feature I still is the spanning windows accross multiple screens. I used to love this app, but since Windows 11 it's been an absolute disatser and the developers have been slow to address the issues.

Thanks for the update. Yes now it works, the snap layouts appear when we hover over the maximize button and we can choose a layout for the window, also if we drag the window up, the layouts also appear, something that was not working before.
But it is not perfect yet. After we place the window at the desired position, the available windows to place in the remaining layout are very limited, I get one or two from the 4-5 that are open in the particular monitor, whereas without the Displayfusion taskbars, Windows proposes most of the windows.
But at least now it is usable again. I will stay with Displayfusion taskbars activated to see how it goes, I almost got used without them, but I was missing the jumplists.

I was able to reproduce that on my end as well, so I've added it to our list to look into.

Thanks!
