Deploying DisplayFusion Compatibility Rules Using Group Policy Preferences

June 26, 2019

If you're running DisplayFusion in a corporate environment and need to centrally add Compatibility rules for specific applications, you can do this using Active Directory Group Policy Preferences.

The steps below will walk you through creating a Compatibility rule for Chrome that will disable the DisplayFusion TitleBar Buttons.

  1. Open the Group Policy Management Console.
  2. Add a new Group Policy Object for DisplayFusion and open it for editing.
  3. Expand the left tree down to User Configuration > Preferences > Windows Settings > Registry.
    The Registry Section of Group Policy
    The Registry Section of Group Policy
  4. Right-click in the right pane and choose New > Registry Item.
    The New Item Menu
    The New Item Menu
  5. Select "HKEY_CURRENT_USER" as the Hive, and set the "Key Path" to Software\Binary Fortress Software\DisplayFusion\Compatibility
  6. Set the "Value Name" to App_1_Path
  7. Set the "Value Data" to the path for the EXE you want to create the Compatibility settings for. You can also use wildcards, like so: *chrome.exe
    Adding the App Path
    Adding the App Path
  8. Add more Registry Items to the policy for the Compatibility settings you want to enable for this application. See the table below for a table of settings and their registry Value Name. Make sure to replace "X" in the Value Name with the number that matches the "App_X_Path" value created in step 6. Set the Value Data to 1 to enable the Compatibility setting.

  9. Repeat steps 4-8 for any other applications you want to create Compatibility rules for. Increase the number in the Value Names for whichever one you're working on. e.g. the second rule would be App_2_Path, the third rule would be App_3_Path, etc.

  10. When you're all done, make sure to link the GPO to an OU that has the DisplayFusion users in it so that they'll get the new policy the next time they logon.

Notes

Compatibility Settings and their Registry Value Names

The following table lists the names of the settings in the Compatibility rule edit window, and the corresponding registry Value Name. All registry values are type "String (REG_SZ)" and all of them use 0 for disabled, and 1 for enabled. Make sure to replace "X" with the number that matches the "App_X_Path" value you're adding this setting for.

Moving Different File Explorer Folder Windows with Trigger Rules

June 11, 2019

It is possible to configure multiple Trigger rules for different instances of the same application. In this example, we'll show you how to configure a Trigger rule for a specific folder in File Explorer. You can repeat the same steps for other folders as well, so that when you open the folders via desktop shortcuts, or DisplayFusion taskbar shortcuts, they'll automatically move to the location or monitor of your choice.

These same steps can apply to other applications that have different window titles. For example, you can have different Trigger rules for different files opened in Notepad.

  • Open the first folder and move it to the desired location and size.
  • On the DisplayFusion Settings > Triggers tab, click Add.
  • In the Match Conditions section, enable the "Process Filename" checkbox. Select File Explorer from the list in the "Select Application" window and click OK.
  • In the Match Conditions section, enable the checkbox for the "Window Text" field, and enter the name of the folder. (e.g. "Documents")
  • In the Actions section, click Add > Move Window to Specific Size and Location.
  • Drag the blue "target" icon and drop it on the window to get its size and location details.
  • Click OK, then OK again.
  • Repeat steps 1-7 for any other folder Triggers that you'd like to setup.
