Surround / Multi Monitor / Low FPS Taskbar Issue Fix

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

Well, after spending hours upon hours trying to isolate my FPS issue. I have found the problem and have found a way to correct the issue.

1. If your problem is due to the task bar, mine wouldn't autohide... As a result, as soon as P3D3 came anywhere near the task bar my frame rates would tank and drop about 90%.

2. The fix,  Go to your Nvidia Control Panel, make sure you have surround setup. Next, go to Nvidia Control Panel "DISPLAY" located at the top of the Nvidia Control Panel screen, now drop down to surround displays and make sure Confine Taskbar To Single Display is "NOT" checked.

That Fixed My Issue, hope it helps those having issues.


It now works fine on my end, hope this helps others having issues.

Hi Mike .... and just as an addendum;


I found that I had somehow 'swapped' my Primary Monitor Taskbar onto one of my Secondary Monitors (and vice-vesa). I reinstated (drag and drop), the 'Primary' Taskbar (the one with ALL of the buttons, gizmos, date, time etc..), back onto my Primary Display Monitor (if that makes sense), returned the errant Taskbar to its original monitor and all is now as it should be.
