I got sent this question via e-mail. On Windows 7 and I think other versions of Windows, by default the same background picture is used for both displays.
When running a dual monitor set-up it is possible to have different wallpapers without using special software.
There is quite a clever fix to this one!
What you need is to find the resolution of each screen
Monitor One: 1920×1080
Monitor Two: 1920×1080
This means you need an image that is 3840×1080
Once you have a suitable image
- Go to Control Panel
- Click Personalization
- Click Desktop Background
- Select the image.
Set the picture position to “Tile”.
The background image will be spanned across both screens.
The trick is you can have two different images that are 1920×1080 that are put side-by-side creating a single image that is 3840×1080
