DisplayFusion can be configured to automatically load a Wallpaper Profile or Desktop Icon Profile when a specific Monitor Profile is loaded or detected. This is especially helpful if Windows moves your Desktop Icons around on restarts.
As soon as DisplayFusion starts up and detects your previously saved Monitor Profile, it will automatically load the associated Wallpaper and Desktop Icon Profiles without intervention.
  • 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
  • Click the "Manage Monitor Profiles" button.

    Select Wallpaper Profile
If you need to load a Monitor Profile via the command line, you can use displayfusioncommand.exe (located in the directory where DisplayFusion is installed).
The command is as follows:
displayfusioncommand.exe -monitorloadprofile "profile name"
Load Monitor from Command Line
If you'd like to load a Monitor Profile automatically on startup, you can create a shortcut in your startup folder that will run the command in the previous section.
For the full set of instructions, see Loading a Monitor Profile on Startup.
There are a few Monitor Configuration related settings in the DisplayFusion Settings > Advanced Settings window. The most useful one is the option to disable the confirmation prompt when changing monitor settings. If you switch Monitor Profiles often, you may wish to disable this prompt to make the process easier.
Note: If for some reason your monitors are unusable after a settings change, DisplayFusion won't be able to revert back to the original settings if the confirmation prompt is disabled. You'd likely need to reboot your machine to make the displays usable again.
  • Open the DisplayFusion Settings window by right-clicking the DisplayFusion tray icon and clicking "Settings."
    Tray Menu - Settings
  • Click the Advanced Settings button.
    Advanced Settings
  • Search for and double-click "Don't Show Confirmation Prompt" Setting.
    Settings
  • Select "Confirmation prompts are not shown" and click OK.

Customizing the DisplayFusion Taskbar

February 12, 2014
By default, the DisplayFusion taskbar will match the behaviour of the Windows taskbar, but the DisplayFusion taskbar has a wealth of customization options. This document covers some of those options and where to configure them.
Some settings affect all DisplayFusion taskbars. These global taskbar settings are in the Taskbar tab of DisplayFusion's Settings.
  • Right-click the DisplayFusion icon and click "Settings."
    Tray Menu - Settings
  • Click the Taskbar tab.
    Taskbar tab
Taskbar Tab
This area allows you to:
  • Enable Multi-Monitor Taskbars
  • Enable Jump Lists
  • Enable focus, full screen, and transparency options
  • Set Taskbar Modes (windows display options)
  • Set the Taskbar Button Middle-Click Behaviour
  • Select the Windows Preview Style
  • Set Taskbar Opacity
The DisplayFusion taskbar allows you to add different types of shortcuts to the taskbar. You can add regular application shortcuts, like the Windows taskbar, but you can also add shortcuts to files, folders, and websites.
Taskbar Shortcuts are in the Taskbar tab of DisplayFusion's Settings.
  • Right-click the DisplayFusion icon and click "Settings."
    Tray Menu - Settings
  • Click the Taskbar tab.
    Taskbar tab
  • Click the Taskbar Shortcuts button.
    Taskbar Shortcuts button
From here you can add all of the shortcut types (Application, File, Folder, Website), and also edit, rename, re-arrange, and specify custom icons for the shortcuts.
Shortcuts
Applications, Folders, and Websites shortcuts start on the same monitor as the taskbar by default.
You can disable this action by disabling the "Force [shortcut] to open/start on same monitor as Taskbar" checkbox. On Applications you also have Administrator and Metro options as well as the ability to use Command Line Arguments.
Application Shortcut Details
Application shortcuts can also be added by right-clicking a button on the DisplayFusion taskbar and choosing "Pin this program to Taskbar."
Pin to Taskbar
Each taskbar element (Start button, shortcuts, application buttons, system tray, clock, and show desktop button) can be moved to either side of the taskbar, or disabled completely.
Right-click a blank space on any DisplayFusion-controlled Taskbar and select "Multi-Monitor Taskbar" to bring up the submenu options.
Multi-Monitor Taskbar
Multi-Monitor Taskbar Menu
This menu allows you to:
  • Control the Size and Position of the taskbar
  • Set the Auto-Hide option
  • Set the visibility and location of the System Tray Clock, System Tray Icons, Start Button, Show Desktop Button and your Shortcuts. There is also a link to Edit Shortcuts.
  • Choose the Alignment, Style, and Grouping of Buttons
Below are some examples of configured Taskbars.
Example 1 - Left Position, Start Button Disabled
