    Pretty much the title. I've done a quick google search but haven't found one that fits the bill exactly. I know I can:

    1. Have two separate desktop background pictures on each monitor
    2. Have the same slideshow folder of pictures display on BOTH monitors

    But I know nothing else.

    Can I have one monitor have a slideshow while the other monitor shows a still picture, preferably without 3rd party software?

  2. Can i have the same preview layout like window 10 slideshow lock screen on window 10 slideshow desktop background ?

    Hi,

    You can have the same preview layout for your lock screen and desktop background slideshow as long as the photos are saved on the same folder. To change the desktop background picture to slideshow, please follow these steps:

    • Open the Settings app.
    • Click on Personalization.
    • Under Background, choose Slideshow.
    • Click on Browse, and then navigate to your slideshow folder that you have created to specify the directory.
    • Set the time interval. Under Change picture every choose your time preference of between 1 minute and 1 day.

    After customizing the desktop background, you'll need to configure the lock screen slideshow settings too. Follow the steps given on this article and select the same slideshow folder:
