    I've actually been waiting on a good price on this for a while (as well as netlimiter)

    Anyway, just enter the code df-bitsoct15 at the the digital fortress store checkout

      I found that if you bought netlimiter 3, you get 30% discount on version 4. Via their website.

      Whats more, you can go from 1x NL3 license to as many version 4 licenses as you want. Still get the multi-buy discount and 30% off on top of that.

      Do not buy with friends if upgrading though, you will not get separate license keys. Not sure if multi-buy also gives a single key - probably.

      I went from 1 NL3 license to 3 NL4 licenses for about $75AUD

    Does Win10 need this???

    Are there any improvements over stock Win10??

    Dell Ultrasharps 24" + 27"

    Thx

      There is a task bar on each monitor that just shows what's open on that monitor. I find that mighty handy

        Not sure if you actually use Windows 10 but my copy does actually do just that without any third party software… Can't remember if it was part of 8/8.1 as well but at least Microsoft finally decided to get their shit together after all these years

        •  

          yeah, it's new with win 10.

    •  

      Win10 does the same job EXCEPT no shortcut keys for moving windows to other monitors. If you run each window under its own 'virtual desktop' (new feature of Win10) then you can use shortcut keys but its too much hassle.

      • +1 vote

        Did they remove the win key + direction arrow shortcut? That will move a window across screens (but will snap to sides first)

        •  

          I think so. It doesn't work for me anymore since getting win10 and when I researched it (because I miss it) I found out about the virtual desktop feature and Microsoft have reassigned the win + direction to that feature now.

          I'm thinking of getting DisplayFusion just for the shortcut key

        • +4 votes

          No they haven't changed it as that combo still snaps the active app to a side (win + left or right arrow) or full screen (win + up arrow).

          If you want to move the active window to another monitor use Win + Shift + right/left arrow. It's been that key combo since Win 7.

          @stokesy77:

          Thanks for that Win + Shift tip man! Love learning new keyboard shortcuts.

        • -1 vote

          @stokesy77: The Win + Shift + right/left arrow shortcut only works if you run multiple virtual desktops, not if you run a single desktop

        • +1 vote

          @PBG: Win+Shift+arrow works fine for me across extended desktop in Win 10.

        • +1 vote

          @PBG: Don't know why that's the case for you but it works for me and I don't use virtual desktops.

          I haven't seen any change in the keyboard shortcuts for multiple monitors from Win 7 -> 8 -> 10.

        •  

          @stokesy77: Oh really? Bummer I'm missing out.

          I have 3 different PCs all with Win10 Pro 64-bit fresh install (not upgrade). None of them work with the shortcut key (they all did in Win8 and only after Win10 installed they don't). Win + Shift + Up/Down works normally but not Left/Right. I've tried for hours to google a solution to no avail :(

      • +1 vote

        Win 10 has shortcut keys. Windows + l/r snaps and then bounces to the next monitor, or win+shift+l/r moves window across straight away.

      I run Nvidia Surround, basically my 3 monitors appear as 1 massive monitor, Windows, including Win 10 put 1 taskbar across all 3 monitors, DisplayFusion detects Surround and can put 2 additional taskbars on each side screen.

    Great timing. Was just looking into Ultramon today!

    • +1 vote

      on that note, how does this compare to ultramon?

      •  

        I used ultramon for years but recently installed this.
        Only difference for me is getting a start button and sys tray on all 3 screens, which I quite like!

        •  

          windows 8/10 can do this function, together with ultramon you have the same thing

          @nairdajun:

          Stuck on W7 at work so this is where DF comes in handy

      been using Ultramon for years. Reading comments to see if this is worth changing to just because it is cheap… lol

      zero issues with Ultramon, btw. Very comprehensive settings.

        Spyder Pro $189USD is the price of a monitor!

        Already +12votes on the comment for same monitors, so it must be confrimed. I'll try it out. Thanks guys!
        (Laptop screen is way off from my 2 Lenovo widescreens which I can't get them to be the same either as 1 is a year older.)

        • +2 votes

          That's not necessarily correct. It helps to, but it doesn't guarantee it!
          Firstly, yes, same monitors; secondly, adjusted by yourself the same; then run them using the same method (ie. DVI, RGB, HDMI). In my case I'm currently running both digital and analogue and they come up very different in colour!; and lastly, hope that they're factory tuned the same!!!

        •  

          @Snoop: oh poop, from my docking station, I'm using DVI and VGA to get the multiple monitors.

      Or get a monitor calibration tool, ie, Spyder Pro

  • +4 votes

    I absolutely love Displayfusion.. Yes, Window 10 now has some of the functionality of DF but it is still by far and away the best monitor configuration tool out there..

    I have a 40" 4k & a 120hz 27" 1080p screen which I primarily use for FTA & Foxtel viewing. Foxtel always opens on the main screen which is a pain in the A$$.. DF allows me to default any app (ie, foxtel) to a specific monitor. I've also got my 4k screen split up into 4 sections, but they're not equal quadrants, as the lower quadrants are a bit taller (win 10 iirc, allows only equal quadrants).. Also, I can set wallpapers for any of the screens.

    Oh, and since switching from AMD to Nvidia, Nvidia doesn't allow you to use a hotkey to enable/disable screens unlike AMD. DF will let you set monitor profiles using hotkeys.

    Oh, and if you're still unsure, try the trial/free version..

    Can this utility enable multiple taskbars on multiple monitors on windows 7 ?

    •  

      yes

    • +1 vote

      yup!

    •  

      Actually bought this ages ago primarily for separate taskbars ages ago.

      You can also right click the taskbar and enable/disable auto-hide which is nice if you use the secondary monitor to watch full-screen video (and don't want the taskbar in the way).

      It also shows only that screen's windows on that taskbar too, which is nice.

      If you want something free then you can use ZBar (I use it all the time at work and home).

      Might require a bit of configuration but otherwise works great.

    great little program, the demo version is useful too
    I use it to have main monitor at 144hz (gaming) and TV cloning my screen at 60hz (movies/shows) Windows 7 can't do that out of the box

  •  

    Thanks got mine.

  •  

    If you get personal home you can also get a free steam upgrade. If you get a standard license it costs 4.99 to get steam upgrade.

  •  

    Will this help Windows remember settings for different docks instead of going haywire? Will it remember different zoom settings for different monitors?

  •  

    Thanks Op! Very happy with this opportunity. Bought a personal license that allows unlimited PCs use. Great stuff!

  •  

    Bought one. I only have a dual monitor setup. Hope this will be useful. Will give it a go for 30 days..

  •  

    Really great piece of software, it's useless for me since W8 but definitely recommend.

  •  

    If you have more than one monitor, this program is not only exceptionally good, the forums are amazing. Almost any reasonable suggestion and they'll add it. Very very good devs, listen, smart, etc.

    This app used to be one of the first things I'd install on any new system. So well done, it just works. Much better than ultramon.

    But since w10, I don't even bother. No real benefits - I get multimonitor taskbars and hotkeys built in, without the application-breaking issues.

  •  

    Looks interesting. Can any one please let me know if it is a resource hog or affects performance noticeably?

      No, the demo is worth trying. It's super powerful - many great little features.

      installed the trial version.
      1st thing found annoying me as hell is when mouse cursor sticks to a taskbar.

      What I mean is
      - I have monitors one above another.
      - enabled taskbars on all monitors
      - when I drag mouse from the top monitor to the bottom (or from bottom up) cursor does not want to pass taskbar area unless I move it really fast. Have very sensitive gaming mouse and need to move it almost across the desk to force jump between monitors

      Is there a way to customise it?

  •  

    Thanks guys. Might give the trial a shot.

    I have been using the free version for about a week since setting up triple screens recently. I ended up getting the Pro Personal Home Unlimited (figured it will come in handy one day) for only $12!($17 Aud)

    Then right before checking-out I purchased Voice Bot Pro for only $5 extra!

    Cant wait to start bossing my computer around! Plus being able to use it with games will be awesome, especially with some FPS games when the action gets hectic and I can just shout out what weapon or grenade I need!

    Together I figured I saved around $47 AUD!

    Thanks Vladdo!
