Win10 Desktop icon move when DisplayFusion starts
Benjamin24
hi - while im booting up windows my icons are on the position i placed - but the moment DF starts they go back to main-screen. then i have to load "Desktop-Icon-Profile"

is there a way to load this profile when DF starts?

There sure is!
  • Setup your icons the way you want them
  • Right-click the DisplayFusion tray icon, navigate to Desktop Icons > Save Profile > New Profile and save the layout
  • Open the DisplayFusion Monitor Configuration
  • Click the Save button and save your monitor layout as a new Monitor Profile
  • Click the Manage Monitor Profiles button, and in that window, assign your Desktop Icon Profile to the Monitor Profile
  • Reboot to test it out

Hope that helps!

I just recently had to redo my computer due to a hdd failure. I decided to put windows on an M2 SSD 2TB card. No issues until I installed Display Fusion. I have been using Display Fusion (for years) with no problems at all up till now. Windows remembers the icon layout, then DF starts up and everything goes to the default left on primary monitor. I keep reading where DF devs want you to make new profiles and have them load up when DF starts. My question is WHY? Windows 10 and DF has given me no issues in the past, what changed to make DF's behavior not remember the icon layout?

I've actually made a bit of progress on that here. I think it has to do with the DisplayFusion multi-monitor taskbar being added too soon when the computer starts up. If you disable the DisplayFusion taskbar, reboot, then manually enable the taskbar, do the desktop icons still get shuffled around?
