Separate Wallpapers For Seperate Displays In Vista

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to set different wallpapers for each monitor? I have 2 monitors and one is Widescreen at 1920x1200 and the other is at 1280x1024 and quite often, a wallpaper works fine for one but not the other due to the size differences. Is there a way to have them use different wallpapers at the same time or at least have them use the same one but handle them differently? The current wallpaper I'm using would work great on both if I could just leave it centered on the big monitor and "stretched" on the smaller one. So is there a way within Windows, the nVidia control panel, or third party software to do this? I see people doing it on Macs so I figured there must be a way to do it in Windows too.

Thanks for any help ^_^

Ultramon will allow you to do this - I used it when I was using Windows. In addition, you will be able to extend your taskbar to the other monitor and a number of other useful functions.

Thanks Jeff. I'm gonna try the Trial but honestly, I don't think I wanna pay $40 for something like this.

Yeah, I was going to suggest displayfusion. Nice little program to use. You don't need to add it to your start up. The wallpaper settings should load anyway. Certainly it lacks all the bells and whistles Ultramon has. The extend taskbar option is a great idea.

Ok, now DisplayFusion is perfect. It's free and the wallpaper thing was all I wanted.
