Working with Monitor Splits

March 28, 2017
Monitor Splitting is a feature that allows you to divide your physical monitors into smaller "virtual" monitors. Split sections can have their own desktop wallpaper, taskbar, and screen saver.
Monitor Splitting can be used on any type of monitor setup. Here are a few example uses of the Monitor Splitting feature:
Note: Maximizing an application will constrain it to the split sections, instead of the entire monitor, however, it's not currently possible to constrain full screen videos or full screen games to monitor splits.
  • Reserve space for widgets or narrow applications: Have some desktop widgets or a narrow application like an instant messaging contact list? You can reserve some space on the left or right side of the monitor, and maximize your other applications to the remaining space.
  • Ultra-wide monitors: Ultra-wide monitors are a great alternative to running two separate monitors. Using DisplayFusion Monitor Splitting, you can split your ultra-wide monitor into two sections, so that you can easily maximize two applications side-by-side.
  • Surround/Eyefinity splitting: By splitting your Surround or Eyefinity setup, you can continue to enjoy your games and videos in Surround/Eyefinity spanning, while still having taskbars, wallpaper, and regular applications confined to individual monitors.
  • Open the DisplayFusion Monitor Configuration window by right-clicking the DisplayFusion tray icon and clicking "Monitor Configuration" (also accessible via the Options tab in Settings).
    Tray Menu - Monitor Configuration
  • In the DisplayFusion Monitor Configuration window, select the monitor you want to split, and click the "Splits and Padding" button.
    Splits and Padding
There are several pre-defined split configurations available via the "Preset Splits" button. You can start by choosing one of those configurations, then customize from there. You can also create your split setup from scratch using the "Horizontal Split" button to split the monitor into side-by-side sections, or the "Vertical Split" button to split the monitor into top/bottom sections.
Below are some example setups and the steps required to configure them.
  • Follow the steps above in the Adding Monitor Splits section to reach this screen.
  • In the Splits and Padding window, click the "Preset Splits" button, and choose the "2x1" option.
    2x1 Preset
  • Click OK, then OK again.
  • Follow the steps above in the Adding Monitor Splits section to reach this screen.
  • In the Splits and Padding window, click the "Preset Splits" button, and choose the "2x1" option.
    2x1 Preset
  • Enable the "Auto-Fill All Splits" checkbox.
    Enable Auto-Fill
  • Click the left split to select it, then change the "Width" value in the "Size" box to
    1344
    and press tab to update the preview.
    1344 Width
  • Click OK, then OK again.
If you're running an NVIDIA Surround or AMD Eyefinity setup without bezel compensation enabled, the quickest way to get up and running with Monitor Splitting is to enable the "Auto-split Eyefinity and NVIDIA Surround monitors" option in the DisplayFusion Monitor Configuration window.
  • Open the DisplayFusion Monitor Configuration window by right-clicking the DisplayFusion tray icon and clicking "Monitor Configuration" (also accessible via the Options tab in Settings).
    Tray Menu - Monitor Configuration
  • Enable the "Auto-split Eyefinity and nVidia Surround monitors" checkbox.
    Auto-split
  • Click OK or Apply. You should now have taskbars on each monitor.
Note that on NVIDIA Surround setups, you'll be prompted to disable the NVIDIA Surround helper processes. It's important that you answer Yes and immediately reboot, if you plan to keep Monitor Splitting enabled. If you answer No, you'll run into some weird quirks with the taskbars when entering/exiting full screen games.
For Monitor Splits in Surround/Eyefinity setups with bezel compensation enabled, see Configuring Monitor Splits for Bezel Correction.
Monitor Padding provides reserved space without creating a split. Monitor Padding affects the size of maximized windows in the non-padded area, but not other features like the taskbars, desktop wallpaper, or screen saver. Application windows will only maximize to the non-padded area, where splits allow application windows to maximize within the full size of the split.
Here's how to configure Monitor Padding to reserve some space on the right side of the monitor:
  • Follow the steps above Adding Monitor Splits to reach this screen.
  • Enter a value (in pixels) in the right side numeric box in the "Padding" section (e.g. 500).
    Padding
  • Click OK or Apply. You should now have taskbars on each monitor.
In the DisplayFusion Monitor Configuration window, you can enable or disable the Screen Savers, Wallpaper, Taskbars, and Window Management for use with splits. If one of these checkboxes is disabled, that feature will ignore the Monitor Splitting configuration, and instead treat the monitor as the full display. This is useful if you want to have application windows constrained to the splits, while leaving the taskbars, wallpaper, and screen savers the full size of the monitor.
  • Open the DisplayFusion Monitor Configuration window by right-clicking the DisplayFusion tray icon and clicking "Monitor Configuration" (also accessible via the Options tab in Settings).
    Tray Menu - Monitor Configuration
  • Enable/Disable your desired features and click OK or Apply.
    Features with Splits
  1. Click the "Show Preview" button in the Splits and Padding window to show the split lines on the monitor itself. Hit Escape or click the "Hide Preview" button to exit. You can adjust splits while the preview is showing.
    Show Preview
  2. Hold the Shift key while clicking the maximize button on a window to override the splits and maximizing the window to the full monitor.
