I doubt it. Your gfx card and Game does this for you if supported. Why would you need DF to do this?

DisplayFusion is not game-specific software, but it does have some game-related features. Like the ability to prevent some fullscreen game windows from minimizing when they loses focus, just look for the "Prevent Window Deactivation" function in DisplayFusion. :)

Thanks for the replies. I think this is important because most are games on Steam.

I use the "mouse lock" feature to lock the mouse to the game window, because I hate it when some games don't capture the mouse correctly.

I've experienced 0 problems with running DF and games. I've got DF running constantly, your missing the point of the software is your toggling it on/off.

I'm astounded people are asking such random questions. It's a robust passive programme. Install it once, never see the programme ever again, you only reape the effects.

I don't think this question is random at all. I Am also curious about how it handles games and videos displayed in full screen when focus is on the other display.

Your having "0 problems" does not answer the OP's question nor does it satisfy my curiosity.

Is there a list of games that this works for?

Am I safe to assume that the "Prevent Window Deactivation" function will allow me to watch videos in full screen while doing stuff on other display?

not really possible.

You can watch a maximized video on the other monitor while playing a full screen game.

A full screen video and game tend to conflict with each other (sometimes even just eith the video in a normal window) either the player crashes or the video freezes (audio still plays) until you exit the game.
This is most likely due to gfx driver or direct X limitations (nothing to do with DisplayFusion).

This is my experience with the matter.

So, I can watch a video or play a game in full screen while being able to browse web or whatever at same time without interrupting full screen display? That is actually what I had meant to ask.

I couldn't handle watching a fullscreen video and playing a fullscreen game at the same time. I would just end up getting killed a whole lot and missing half the movie.

If your video player is using GPU acceleration you may run into issues when playing a game, but otherwise this feature will allow you to play a movie and game at the same time, without either one getting minimized when it loses focus. Some games don't support this, the best thing to do is test it. You can download a 30-day trial version from here:

If you want a multimonitor program that is directed at games try SoftTH... You can find it on the Softth dot com website.. Loads of information and the developer forum even has a very informative base to read up on.. And they claim to be directly aimed at the gamer application. I just downloaded it so I can try it out.. They just transitioned from Beta to Alpha so the Alpha versions should become availiable soon.. And it is FREE...

You are aware Steam does not only sell games right?

Can you see where it says "SOFTWARE" on the top of the Steam Store page?
