Output behind windows taskbar

Hi,

im using a HP EliteDesk running Win10 as my Caspar Server. The computer has two build in DisplayPorts outputs and I am configuring one to be fill and the other key. I autostart the server during booting. I want to mount the computer inside my flypack and have it booting when it receives power.

My issue is that one of the outputs are placed so that the windows taskbar is visible infront of it. The only way I have found woriking to get rid of this is to connect a keyboard and alt-tab to the casparcg window. This is ofcorse very annoying. Any ideas what I might have done worng? My config is:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

</configuration>

There is this warning
[2022-11-16 13:52:11.119] [7776] [warning] Key [1|1080p3000] Could not find display settings for screen-index: 1
but right after it seems to be able to initliaize the screen again.

any ideas what might be causing this?

Upgraded to 3.2.1 and it seem to work better , placing window in foreground.

The warning in the log still remains, any suggestions on that would be appreciated

To get rid of the taskbar see this link.

Funny that this works without setting the keyer mode.

Thanks! What is keyer mode?

Forget about: Screen consumer does not have that, sorry.
