    Trouble with 2 monitors and different wallpapers


    Windows 10.0.19042 build 19042

    So what I want to do is have 2 monitors but different wallpapers on each one. I figured out how to do this except sometimes when I turn on my computer the settings are not saved.as when I last turned the computer off. Also, sometimes when I try to set monitor 2 to a different wallpaper nothing happens.

    I went into personalize and background to accomplish these tasks, but why did then change after I turned my computer off?

    :)

    Trouble with 2 monitors and different wallpapers

    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.
