Working with Window Position Profiles

May 15, 2018

Window Position Profiles are a new feature in DisplayFusion 9.2 that allow you to save your current window layout and easily restore it at a later time, after reboots, or undocking/redocking for example. This guide will walk you through the different ways to save a Window Position Profile, and the different ways to manually and automatically load Window Position Profiles.

Saving a Window Position Profile

There are a few different ways that you can save a Window Position Profile. The first step, regardless of the method you use to save the profile is to size and position all of your windows so that they're setup the way you like. Then, do one of the following to save the layout as a Window Position Profile:

  1. Right-click the DisplayFusion tray icon and navigate to Window Position Profiles > Save Profile > New Profile.
  2. Open the DisplayFusion Settings, click the Window Position Profiles tab, and click the Save button.

Manually Loading a Window Position Profile

There are many ways to manually load a Window Position Profile. Before loading a profile, you'll want to make sure that your applications are already open.

  1. Right-click the DisplayFusion tray icon, and navigate to Window Position Profiles > Load Profile > Profile Name.
  2. Open the DisplayFusion Settings, click the Window Position Profiles tab, select the profile, and click the Load button.
  3. Assign a key combination to the "Load Window Position Profile: profile-name" Function on the Settings > Functions tab.
  4. Set the "Load Window Position Profile: profile-name" Function as a TitleBar Button on the Settings > Functions tab.
  5. Via the command line with DisplayFusionCommand.exe -WindowPositionProfileSave and DisplayFusionCommand.exe -WindowPositionProfileLoad

Overwriting an Existing Window Position Profile

To overwrite an existing profile, choose its name from the Window Position Profiles > Save Profile menu in the DisplayFusion tray menu. Note that overwriting does not add programs to the profile, it completely replaces it with only the windows you have open at the time.

Assigning Window Position Profiles to Monitor Profiles

One of the ways you can automatically load a Window Position Profile is by automatically assigning it to a Monitor Profile. Doing this allows DisplayFusion to automatically load the Window Position Profile whenever you switch Monitor Profiles. Note that there's a delay of about 15-20 seconds after the Monitor Profile has been loaded, to allow time for the taskbars to finish reloading before restoring the window positions. To assign a Window Position Profile to a Monitor Profile:

  1. Create a Monitor Profile.
  2. In the DisplayFusion Monitor Configuration window, click the "Manage Monitor Profiles" button.
  3. Select the Monitor Profile in the list.
  4. Click the "Window Position Profiles" button, and choose the profile you would like to assign to the Monitor Profile.
  5. Click Close, then OK on the Monitor Configuration window.

Loading Window Position Profiles Using Triggers

Another method for loading Window Position Profiles automatically comes via the Triggers feature. For example, if you have trouble with Windows messing up your window positions when the computer has been locked, you can setup a Trigger rule like the screenshot below, which will force DisplayFusion to load the Window Position Profile each time you unlock the computer.

Introducing the CheckCentral Data API!

April 4, 2018

We're excited to announce that CheckCentral now has a read-only API available, so that you can pull Check and Issue details into your own custom applications!

To get started, select the API option from the Organization menu when you're on your CheckCentral page. On this page, you can add API tokens that are used when accessing the API from your scripts. Treat the tokens as you would your password!

API Tokens page
API Tokens page

After adding a token, you can click the Documentation link to view the available API endpoints, and if you click one of the endpoints, you can test it out right in your browser. The API calls return JSON data that you can use in your programming/scripting language of choice.

Here's a sample PowerShell script that gets the details for the Checks in a specific Check Group, and dumps them to a formatted HTML file: CC-API-GetCheckDetailsForSpecificGroup.ps1

If you need any help with the new API or have any questions, please contact us and we'll help you get up and running.
