  1. Creators Update - Cannot set different wallpaper per monitor


    Hi all

    I just updated to the Creators Edition and my link to the classic wallpaper chooser (that I got from this site) is now opening up the default personalisation screen. Meaning that I no longer have the ability to set a different background per monitor.

    I was previously using a shortcut to C:\Windows\System32\control.exe /name Microsoft.Personalization /page pageWallpaper

    Is there any workaround, beyond having to stitch images together, to get this to work?

    Many thanks

    :)

    Multiple Wallpapers on Windows 10

    This allows me to access and set wallpapers but not for individual monitors. I still cannot set different backgrounds for each of my monitors.

    Ignore me - I am so used to using the Wallpaper chooser workaround, I didn't notice that you can right click an image from the new personalisation area and set the monitor

    /facepalm

  6. I am still having issues, I have 8 monitors, seem you can only cycle between 5 images, then you have to browse to another and that resets the entire process.

    Creators Update - Cannot set different wallpaper per monitor

    Right clicking images from the personlization area did not automatically work for me, and the previous work around that I was using was also not working. However, I have discovered this one:
    hitting the Windows+R keys, then typing in (or copy/paste)

    shell:::{ED834ED6-4B5A-4bfe-8F11-A626DCB6A921} -Microsoft.Personalization\pageWallpaper
