I will piggy-back off your suggestion and suggest that StartIsBack to always "force" the taskbar on whatever monitor the user chooses. I currently have a dual-monitor setup, with two PCs, and keyboard/mouse hooked-up through a KVM. The taskbar is set to show on the non-primary monitor. Whenever I switch my monitors to the other machine, then back to the Windows 11 one (with StartIsBack installed), the taskbar keeps displaying itself on the Primary monitor, when I have set it to display on the non-Primary monitor. I also have the taskbar set to be on the right-hand edge of the screen. It would be great if StartIsBack can have a setting to choose which monitor to show the taskbar on, then ensure that the taskbar is always showing on that monitor, when that monitor is available. PS- I have installed ExplorerPatcher and Stardock's Start11. StarIsBack is the best out of the lot, and I paid for a license 10-minutes after installing it. Keep up the great work.
Drag the taskbar gosh
Yes, that's the issue: every time I switch the monitors back to Windows 11, I have to drag the taskbar back to the secondary monitor. I have to do this multiple times per day. Could StarIsBack "remember" which monitor the taskbar should be on?
It remembers as long as you don't disconnect them. I guess the issue is DisplayPort non-support
Hmm, I have multiple inputs on each monitor, mixed with HDMI, DisplayPort, and Mini DisplayPort. When I switch to each machine, I change the input on the monitor itself (not through a KVM switcher... the keyboard and mouse is switched through a KVM USB switcher, though). Because the input is changed on the monitors themselves, would this be the same as "disconnecting" the monitors from each machine? If so, would the lack of "remembering" which monitor the taskbar should be on be a Windows 11 core issue?
Actually, I figured out the easiest way to solve this: I set the second monitor as "Main Display". So now, the taskbar appears on it at all times, even after switching inputs. D'oh!
I have this issue using a DisplayPort merger. Is there a way to remember even on disconnecting a screen? Like remember the position for different number of screens?
And I’ll add that I don’t change main display because as said in https://muut.com/startisback#!/startisback/issues:bug-startallback-doesnt it can mess up with badly coded application that force themselves to "main" display
