Windows go behind taskbar when snapped on Windows 11 10.0 Beta 6

Hey,
I just upgraded to Window 11 and updated to the newest beta of DF, except now when I snap a window on either of my side monitors the content goes behind it like this (see attached file). It seems like it snaps to full screen ignoring the DisplayFusion task bar.
-
I didn't change any of my settings and it seemed to work fine when I first installed Beta 6, is there a setting I'm missing or something?
Thanks!
-
Edit: If I exit DF and reopen it it seems to cause the windows to snap properly, it seems like DF needs to be exited and reopened on boot otherwise windows ignore the taskbars.
-
Edit 2: Seems like even that is inconsistent, it took exiting and reopening 3 times for the snapping to work correctly.

I've managed to accomodate for this a bit:
Disabling every application that opens on startup that also pops up with a window seemed to fix it (Dicsord, Spotify, etc) I'm wondering if this is happening because they open first, then DF opens and then it messes up the snap area size

Hello,

Interesting, is this only happening with those applications on startup?

Thanks!

Yeah it was just those two, Spotify and Discord, I have a few other applications that open but without a window popping up but those don't seem to have any effect.

I tried playing with the startup settings of Spotify/Discord to open minimized instead and reenabled them which didn't fix the issue
Except now even with them disabled my windows snap behind the DF taskbar again

Hello,

Sorry let me re-word my last question. Does this only happen when those applications open on your initial boot?

Thanks!

That's what I thought at first, but it might be unrelated. I temporarily enabled them on boot to test them with "open minimized at boot" settings but it made no difference. I then disabled them at boot but now windows are back to snapping back behind the taskbar.

Hello,

Okay, interesting. Could you send me over a debug log? Here are the steps:

  • 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

Thanks!

Sure thing, I've attached the DebugInfo .zip file.
I did a fresh boot and Displayfusion started at 10:21 AM, the taskbars on both of my side monitors appeared, and immediately windows I opened would snap behind the taskbars that DisplayFusion opened.

Beta 5 seems to work fine, window snapping was right immediately on boot.

Hello,

Interesting, I've attached links for beta 4 and 3 below as well. Those should be the last 2 betas with changes for Windows 11. Can you try those out and let me know your results?

Thanks!

It seems like it's the same issue as with Beta 5/6, although I've noticed that if I don't open any windows for a few minutes it then registers the proper "work area" resolution and doesn't go behind the taskbar.

Just an update, I saw Beta 7 was available so I installed it and tested it out, I'm still having the same issue as with Beta 3/4/5/6/7

Could you update to v9.9, and send me over another copy of your troubleshooting info?

Thanks!

Sorry for not replying sooner, I'm not entirely sure which version fixed it but I'm on Beta 11 now and everything is working great now!

This happens to me and is the sole reason I am about to uninstall DisplayFusion because its unusable.
Here is a screenshot of my webbrowser on facebook, I know its hard to figure out because I am using a dark theme and I have blacked out personal/sensitive info like names and my chat, however what I am trying to show you is where you actually type yourself in the chat box as well as the emoji button etc, it is all hidden behind DisplayFusions taskbar on the second monitor.

Known again I can start up my PC and this doesnt happen but most times, it is happening and restarting DisplayFusion several times hasnt fixed it.

I have uninstalled it now, no problems with Windows 11 taskbars

Hi Lee,

This does seem to have stemmed from Windows 11, but unfortunately we haven't been able to reproduce the issue on our end, so we're a bit stuck. I've noted down your contact information, so if we have any news on it going forward, we'll be sure to let you know.

Thanks!

I was stumped why the taskbar on my second, higher resolution monitor (4K) was on top of the top boarder of a running app until this morning. My smaller screen is an HD resolution.

I have a program called Editpad Lite. It opened on the 4K monitor but I had no access to the top line because the DisplayFusion task bar was on top of the top boarder of that app. It also hid the tabs on that app.

I solved it by putting the taskbar on the side and that stays on the side and the app opens alongside of it. I believe that this is a bug in DisplayFusion for Windows 11.

Taskbars should stay on top AND deny any permission for an app to cover it except when streaming or other uses of the full screen.

I am running Beta 14. Let me know what help I can provide in understanding this or if there was something I could do differently. I love your product because I spend a lot of time on the computer (12 hours or so a day) and I like things pretty.

Hello,

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.

With this beta, DisplayFusion should prompt you to restart explorer when the issue happens.

Thanks!

I just upgraded to Windows 11, and I'm having this issue. Updating to the latest beta doesn't fix it.

Hi Chris,

When the issue happens, if you restart explorer, does that fix it?

Thanks!

I've been having this same issue for a long time now, including the latest v10 beta 16. Also every now and then the df taskbar disappears for a second. For me it does get fixed temporarily when I restart windows explorer, but that's not much of a fix. I am also not getting the prompt to restart explorer, but to be fair, such a prompt would be kind of annoying...

Hi,

This is my (daily) solution after Windows 11 starts:

  • Goto Windows 11 Settings, Personalisation, Taskbar, Taskbare behaviors.
  • CHECK the option for 'Show my taskbar on all displays'.
  • WAIT until taskbar(s) updates on secondary screen(s): unloads and loads
  • Close the DisplayFusion question about select Windows or DisplayFusion Taskbars by NOT selecting any buttons, but the click on the X in upper right corner of dialog window
  • UN-CHECK the option for 'Show my taskbar on all displays', and close the Windows 11 Settings window

DF Beta 16 on Windows 11 build 22000.675.

Could everyone that's still having this issue on 10.0 Beta 16 send over a debug log?

  • 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 (please send it while the issue is happening)
  • Disable debug logging after sending the log

Thanks!

Ive just reinstalled this after god knows how long, why is this very simple bug still happening? Absolute ridiculous, its unusable and you obviously cant fix it so you may aswel just give up on this software and call it a day as a business. You failed.
Uninstalling once again

No need to be so rude. How can they fix it if they can't reproduce it?

But it is true, I am also still experiencing this bug. I've turned off the multi-monitor taskbar..

I too have this problem on and off and I have Beta 16. I also agree with the responder who said the response from Lee Worrall67180 was rude. This app is a very nice customization of the Windows 11 interface. There are problems, and they are minor but annoying. I do not expect DisplayFusion to be perfect, but I sure would like it perfected.

I also would like the capability when there is a problem, to make a one-click identification of the time and dump of the log into any email with the proper address. I think that such a capability would more quickly bring a problem to the attention of you software folks.
