Setting Different Wallpapers – The other day Scott Hanselman posted a blog post on setting individual wallpapers for each monitor in Windows 8 if you’re using multiple monitors. While this isn’t strictly something many will find essential, it bugs the heck out of me not being able to do it in Windows 7. If you’re using Windows 7, you would be better off using DisplayFusion (my current app of choice for Windows 7). If you’re on Windows 8 and have multiple monitors, here is how you do it.
Setting Different Wallpapers – The Short Tutorial On How
So if you will bear with me, this might be over really quickly. It is so easy to do this. Right click your desktop and select ‘Personalize’.
From the Personalization window that pops up, select the ‘Desktop Background’ link at the bottom of the screen.
I’m a Hendrix fan, so I’m thinking it is time for a bit of Jimi on my desktop. Usually you would left-click the image you want to use. In windows 8 however, if you right-click the image you will see a menu pop up that allows you to set the wallpapers individually.
Something so small and easy to do, yet I never knew about it before Scott Hanselman’s blog post. Thanks Scott!
