Custom CheckCentral Push Notification Sounds

February 20, 2015

The latest versions of the CheckCentral mobile apps now support custom push notification sounds, so that you can customize your alerts to your liking! The custom notification sounds are available in version 1.4 and up, so if you're not seeing those options in the Settings on the mobile app, switch to the Help page and scroll to the bottom of the page to make sure that you're running 1.4 or higher.

You can set the notification sound for each notification type (Success, Warning, and Failure). For each type, you can choose either the System Default, CheckCentral Default, or a custom notification sound on your device.

To configure the notification sounds:

  1. Open the CheckCentral mobile app
  2. Tap the menu button (top-left)
  3. Tap the Settings item in the menu
  4. Use the buttons on the Settings page to select your notification sounds
  5. Tap the Test button to get a test notification

If you don't receive the test notification when you tap the Test button, scroll to the bottom of the Settings page and tap the Re-register button to try re-registering your device for push notifications.

Preventing Game Windows From Minimizing

February 13, 2015

DisplayFusion contains a built-in Function called "Prevent Window Deactivation." Since Windows disables global hotkeys while full screen games are running, you won't be able to activate it using a key combination. Instead, you'll need to enable it using a Window Location rule for each game.

When creating the Window Location rule, make sure to select "Run Selected Function on the Window" from the "Window Size" drop-down, then choose "Prevent Window Deactivation" from the "Function" drop-down.

You can use wildcards when specifying the Application in the Window Location rule. For example: If your games are all stored in D:\Games, you could enter D:\Games\* in the Application text box to make the rule match all games in that directory.

Note: While this Function should work for most games, there are some games that do weird things and may not allow this Function to work correctly.

FileSeek 4.1 Now Available!

February 6, 2015

We're happy to announce that FileSeek 4.1 is now available for download! This release contains a few important fixes and changes:

  • The context menu in Windows Explorer can now handle opening multiple files in one instance of FileSeek
  • You can now drag and drop files into the Include and Exclude files and paths text boxes to automatically append them
  • An preview area has been added to the results pane
  • FileSeek now searches root UNC network paths correctly (i.e. \\server)
  • Resolved an issue where the include files box gets cleared when opening FileSeek from the Explorer context menu
  • Resolved an issue where date filters were not saved correctly in search profiles

Updating FileSeek

We encourage everyone to update to the new version today. We'd like to send out a big thank you to everyone who helped beta test FileSeek, and to the translators who worked hard to make FileSeek available in their native languages!

My Videos Wallpaper Source FAQ

January 13, 2015

The DisplayFusion My Videos wallpaper source will let you use your video files or animated images as your desktop wallpaper. To use the My Videos wallpaper source, you will need to have Windows 7 or later installed on your computer, a working version of DirectX 9, and the correct video codecs to view your media files.

My Videos Settings

Muting and Unmuting Videos

To mute or unmute any My Videos wallpaper sources that are running, click the 'Wallpaper Settings' button on the Desktop Wallpaper window to open the Wallpaper Settings window, then check or uncheck the "Mute all audio for the video wallpaper source" option.

Wallpaper Settings

Codecs

Codecs are programs that are installed on your computer that help encode and decode video files. Windows comes with basic ones that let you view common file formats, such as DivX encoded files (usually .avi), or Windows Media Video files (.wmv). To view other file formats, you may need to install a codec pack to help DisplayFusion make sense of your media. There are many packs to chose from, but if you are new to the concept of codecs, we recommend this light weight package.

To learn more about codecs, please view this site.

DirectX 9

All versions of Windows 7 and later have a working copy of DirectX that will be compatible with the My Videos wallpaper source, but sometimes different software installations can change files or even corrupt them. To check your DirectX installation, run the dxdialog to see the status of your installation. To run the dialog, open the Run window by pressing Win+R and type 'dxdiag' in the text field.

DxDiag Window

If you have any problems with DirectX, we recommend downloading this distributable pack to fix your installation

Configuring Monitor Splits for Bezel Correction

January 5, 2015

When setting up an NVIDIA Surround or AMD Eyefinity display group, it's possible to also configure custom resolutions that compensate for the space between physical monitors caused by the monitor bezels. Starting with DisplayFusion 7.0, you can configure monitor splits to also compensate for the monitor bezels. The monitor splits allow you to have separate taskbars, wallpaper, and screen savers on each physical monitor, while still leaving Surround/Eyefinity enabled.

Configuring Monitor Splits to Account for Bezel Corrected Setups

The following steps are for the fairly standard setup of splitting a 3 monitor NVIDIA Surround/AMD Eyefinity group, aligned horizontally. If you've got a different Surround/Eyefinity setup, the same general steps apply, but you'll need to modify steps 2, 5, and 6 accordingly.

  1. Disable the "Auto-Fill Splits" checkbox.
  2. Use the "Preset Splits" button to select the 3x1 option.
  3. Select each split, and set the "Width" values to the actual resolution of your physical monitor (not the bezel corrected resolution).
  4. Click the "Show Preview" button.
  5. Select the middle split, and using the "Left" box in the Location group, increase the value until you see the white line on the left side of the middle monitor.
  6. Select the right split, and using the "Left" box in the Location group, increase the value until you see the white line on the left side of the right monitor.
  7. Verify that all three monitors have a white line on all four sides, then click OK, and OK again.

The video below demonstrates these steps on a Surround group that consists of 3 monitors at 1280x1024, with a bezel compensation of 50px between each monitor. The video was captured on a very wide resolution, so it's best viewed full screen with the quality set to 1080p or higher.
