Binary Fortress Software: Apps to Make Life Easier!

Customizing the DisplayFusion Taskbar

February 12, 2014

By default, the DisplayFusion taskbar will match the behaviour of the Windows taskbar, but did you know that the DisplayFusion taskbar has a wealth of customization options that you can configure to best suit your needs?

Per-Taskbar Settings

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 if you don't have a use for it on that particular monitor. Additionally, you can customize it further with the following:

  • Choose whether shortcuts combine with running buttons (like pinned items on the Windows taskbar)
  • Customize the height of the taskbar
  • Enable the taskbar to automatically hide when not in use
  • Disable application button grouping, so that each window of the same application gets its own button
  • Choose whether buttons show only the icon, or include the window title in addition to the icon
  • Disable the taskbar on a specific monitor, instead of all monitors (3+ monitors)

The customization options are per-taskbar settings. To access them, right-click a blank space on the taskbar itself and navigate to the Multi-Monitor Taskbar sub-menu. There you'll find a list of further sub-menus for each element containing the configuration options for each one.

If you'd like to reset all of the taskbars to the default settings again, you can use the "Reset All Taskbars" button on the DisplayFusion Settings > Taskbar tab.

Global Taskbar Settings

There are also some settings that affect all of the DisplayFusion taskbars. These settings are located on the DisplayFusion Settings > Taskbar tab.

Some of the options you can change there allow you to:

  • Change the taskbar mode, for example, you can configure it to show all open applications on all taskbars, instead of only on the monitor that the application is located on
  • Change or disable the action that is taken when a taskbar button is middle-clicked (open a new instance, close application, and more)
  • Change or disable the window previews that are shown when hovering over a button with the mouse
  • Enable or disable jump lists for taskbar buttons

Adding and Editing Shortcuts

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. By default, new windows opened from shortcuts on the DisplayFusion taskbar will be forced to move to that same monitor. This can be changed in the Taskbar Shortcuts editor.

Adding application shortcuts can be done by right-clicking a button on the DisplayFusion taskbar and choosing "Pin this program to Taskbar."

For the other shortcut types, you'll need to use the Taskbar Shortcuts window, accessible via the right-click menu on the taskbar, or by clicking the "Taskbar Shortcuts" button on the DisplayFusion Settings > Taskbar tab.

From there you can add all of the shortcut types, and also edit, rename, re-arrange, and specify custom icons for the shortcuts.

Here are a few sample screenshots of different taskbar configurations.
