  1. Desktop Backgrounds Change One At A Time


    When using the Slideshow background for multiple displays, Windows should change all backgrounds for the monitors.
    I'm using a triple display with an individual background on each.Instead of changing every background at once, Windows has decided to cycle each monitor. Using the "Change picture every ___" interval, which I've temporarily set to 1 minute, Windows cycles through my monitors from left to right, ignoring which is the primary display Which is marked as the first display, Display 1. It cycles from my left monitor, to my mid Primary, to my right. Changing display numbers does nothing, it always cycles through in that same order.
    I first noticed this on my sister's computer, of which the background would again change on the left monitor, and after the interval, would change the right, and repeat.

    I've been using Windows 10 for a few months now, and this used to work correctly.
    I don't know exactly when this started happening, but I'm unable to resolve the issue on my own.

    EDIT: PC Specs

    Windows 10 Home Edition
    Intel i5-3570k @ 3.8 GHz
    16GB DDR3 RAM
    2x Nvidia GTX 670 Windforce SLI Bridge

    NOTE:
    My sister, of which has this same exact problem, is running a very similar build to mine.
    Only difference is she has no SLI bridge, only a single GTX 670, and less RAM.
    We both use Win10 Home.

    :)
