DisplayFusion 9.6 Beta 4 Now Available!

November 26, 2019

We're very excited to announce that DisplayFusion 9.6 Beta 4 is now available for download! This version overhauls the backend code for Monitor Configuration and Monitor Profiles to resolve a bunch of compatibility issues with various setups.

Important Notes!

  • The first time you open the Settings > Screen Saver tab after installing 9.6 Beta 4, it will be very slow to open, due to Windows Defender locking the .scr files for a long time during the initial scan.
  • Keen observers will notice that 9.6 Beta 4 is the first beta we've posted since 9.5. We distributed earlier betas privately for a few issues, but didn't post them publicly.
  • We've made some big backend changes to Monitor Configuration and Monitor Profiles. If you run into trouble with your profiles after updating, you may need to re-save them.
  • We've added some completely anonymous telemetry for crash reporting. You can disable this with an Advanced Setting, and we list what data is sent in our EULA.

Working with Mouse Management

July 2, 2019
DisplayFusion has a variety of options on the Mouse Management tab that can help you use the mouse more efficiently across multiple monitors. This guide details each option.
To access the Mouse Management features:
  1. Right-click the DisplayFusion icon and click "Settings."
    Tray Menu - Settings
  2. Click the "Mouse Management" tab.
    Mouse Management tab
  3. Enable the features you want and click OK or Apply.
The options are as follows:
  • Allow the mouse wheel to scroll windows under the mouse cursor that are not in focus: This feature will allow you to scroll up or down in using the mouse wheel when hovering over any application window, even if it's not the currently focused window. This comes in handy in situations like having a Word document open on one screen, and a website open on the other screen. You can keep the keyboard focus on Word, but still scroll up/down in the web browser with the mouse. In Windows 7, DisplayFusion handles this behaviour. In Windows 10, this functionality is built-in, so the option in the DisplayFusion Settings just enables/disables the Windows option for this.
  • Wrap mouse cursor around left/right monitor edges: Normally when you move the monitor to the far edge of a monitor, it stops. When this feature is enabled, moving the mouse to the far edge will cause it to wrap around to the other far edge. For example, with two monitors side-by-side, you can move the mouse to the far left of the left monitor, and it will continue moving on the far right of the right monitor.
  • Wrap mouse cursor around top/bottom monitor edges: This feature behaves the same as the left/right wrapping (see above), but with the top/bottom instead.
  • Only wrap mouse cursor when more than one monitor is connected: When either mouse wrapping option (see above) is enabled, this option will only allow the mouse to wrap if there's more than one monitor connected and enabled.
  • Prevent mouse cursor from snagging on unaligned left/right monitor edges: If you've got monitors with different screen resolutions, you may run into issues with the mouse getting stuck when trying to move it between the two monitors. This is because one monitor has a shorter edge than the other monitor, and Windows only allows the mouse to cross where both monitor edges line up. If you enable this feature, you can cross the mouse over at any left or right monitor edge.
  • Prevent mouse cursor from snagging on unaligned top/bottom monitor edges: This feature behaves the same as the left/right snagging prevention (see above), but with top/bottom edges instead.
  • Prevent mouse cursor from sticking in Sticky Corners: (Windows 11, 10 only) Windows will catch the mouse in the corners to prevent accidental movement to the other monitor when intending to click on elements in the corners (Start button, window close button, show desktop button). Enabling this feature will allow you to move the mouse to the other monitor without it getting caught in the corners.

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.
  4. GPM Editor, Registry
  5. Right-click in the right pane and choose New > Registry Item.
  6. New Registry Item
  7. Select "HKEY_CURRENT_USER" as the Hive, and set the "Key Path" to
    Software\Binary Fortress Software\DisplayFusion\Compatibility
  8. Set the "Value Name" to
  9. Set the "Value Data" to the path for the EXE you want to create the Compatibility settings for. You can also use wildcards, (e.g.
  10. Set Path
  11. Add more Registry Items to the policy for the Compatibility Settings you want to enable for this application.
  12. 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.
    More Items
    See the table below for a list of Compatibility settings and their Registry Value Name.
    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.
    GPM Editor Registry List
  13. 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.
  14. If the user has already configured Compatibility rules, these settings can end up overriding them. It's best to block access to the Compatibility tab with the DisplayFusion Group Policy (ADMX) templates.
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.
