  1. How to display different slideshow wallpapers (backgrounds) on each monitor


    Previously, I could set the background to "Slideshow," choose an album folder, and see a different image from the folder on each screen. The pictures on each screen would then change to something else according to the "Change picture every" timeframe.


    Now, with these same settings, the pictures still rotate but I get the same picture on every monitor. How do I display a different slideshow picture on each individual monitor?

    :)

  2. Wallpaper Slideshow on Only One Monitor

    Hello. As the title suggests, I want to have desktop wallpapers that are different on each monitor. More specifically, I want to have one single wallpaper for my main screen, but I want my secondary screen to cycle through a slideshow. Is there a way to
    set only one screen to have a slideshow?

    Using different folders of wallpapers for different Slideshow on each monitors

    Hi,

    You can set different wallpapers for multiple monitors without having to install a third-party software. To do this, you can follow the steps below:

    • Right-click on the empty area of desktop and then click Personalize.
    • Under Choose your picture section, right-click on a picture which you want to set as a desktop background for one of your monitors. You will see a context menu, and you can select which monitor to use.
    • You can also use the Browse button to browse to the picture you want to set as a wallpaper. Click
      Choose picture to add it to the Choose your picture section, and press right-click on the picture.

    Should you need further assistance, don't hesitate to get back to us.

    How to display different slideshow wallpapers (backgrounds) on each monitor

    Bug using slideshow as background wallpaper

    I've configured my windows to use slideshow as wallpaper and set the window theme based on color of the background picture. Using windows explorer, when the wallpaper changes if you are navigating through a list of itens then windoes selects the first
    item from that list. Its annoying.
