Bug with maximized windows and multiple displays

First of all, thanks for creating this awesome tool, Windows 11 is pretty much unusable without it. Unfortunately however, I am running into an annoying bug with it. First, some context: - I have connected multiple displays to my PC - I have set the taskbar to only show on one monitor - I have moved the taskbar to a secondary monitor, so it is NOT on my main display Now, the actual problem: After starting the PC or doing any kind of change to the display settings (e.g. connecting/disconnecting a monitor, enabling/disabling HDR, changing resolution, etc.), there will be some kind of reserved space on my main display where the taskbar would be. This means that any maximized windows will not fill the entire screen, but leave an empty area at the bottom matching the size of the taskbar on my secondary monitor. [Issue](//muut.com/u/startisback/s3/:startisback:5WEc:issue.jpg.jpg) This can be resolved by dragging the taskbar to my main display and then dragging it back to the secondary monitor where I want it, but unfortunately I need to repeat this every time I start my PC or change any display settings, so it is quite a nnoying. Do you think it would be possible to fix this issue or do you have any advice on how to circumvent it?

Try adding the following registry key: [HKCU\SOFTWARE\StartIsBack] NoSyncDisplayChange = (DWORD)1

Awesome, thank you! That seems to have solved the issue.
