Hi all!

I have recently bought a second monitor, now I am using 2 monitors, I'm using one for my primary, and one for my extended desktop. I noticed that if you change the background in display properties, it changes the background on both screens to that. I'm not too bothered, I'm just pretty sure I have seen somebody before use 2 different backgrounds on either monitor, I'd like to do that too. Just want to know first if it is possible, if so... How?

Thanks :whistling:

Ithink it's done by joining the two desktops together in a graphics editing program and then using the finished grapic as the dektop background.

there's a method (sorry i don't know how exactly...but if you give me the make and model of graphix card...i'll try to find a manual) to have two completely seperate desktops instead of doing the extended desktop deal...i think it also ends up coming with multiple start menus as well...

what Bazcor says makes sence, and its a quick way to do it.

His idea is to join both images you want into 1, so it'd be the size of , by example, for me, 2048*768 ( I also have 2 monitors, been using them scince early october )

The only thing I cant see though is how you'd make windows understand to display only 1 picture for both desktops
