  1. Windows 10 Pro Update Removed Separate Background Per Monitor Support


    Anyone else noticed that the latest Windows 10 update 2004 [Build 19041.508] seems to have removed the ability to have a different background wallpaper on each connected monitor? Is that a bug that is being fixed or did the functionality get moved somewhere else?

    :)

  2. (4K DP, 1440p DP, 1200p DVI-D) Triple monitor setup; 2 monitors have the same background when background is set to slideshow shuffle

    My setup:

    • CPU: Intel Core i7-3770
    • GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition, fully updated drivers
    • OS: Windows 10 Pro v1803, fully patched

    Steps to reproduce:

    1. Connect the monitors as in the title
    2. Set wallpaper background to shuffle in Windows Settings

    What happens:

    2 of the monitors (always adjacent to each other) have the same background.

    What should happen:

    All 3 monitors should have different backgrounds.

    Anyone ever seen this before? Any ideas?

    Is it time for Windows 10 already?

    Again, for those that want the update reservation and you meet the requirements ---> Upgrade to Windows 10 for Free

    And, some info from the FAQ page:

    Also, some interesting info from the Specifications page:

    Windows 10 Pro Update Removed Separate Background Per Monitor Support

    Support For Different Backgrounds on Dual Monitors

    Hello,

    I have seen posts from a couple years ago with solutions that don't work on this topic, so I am re-posting this in the hopes that this is a suggestion that would benefit other Windows 10 Users besides me.

    My PC has Windows 10 and because I like to bounce back and forth between things, I have dual monitors attached to my PC. This is all fine and dandy, except for one tiny Customization option that is missing - I wish I had the support to have differing backgrounds.
    In my particular case, I would like my Monitor 1 to have a picture/slideshow of a household pet or family pictures whereas I would like my Monitor 2 to have personal motivational quotes that I could change by pretty-fying (dunno if that's even a real word)
    the quote using the Paint program.

    • Am I alone in thinking this would be a good feature for Microsoft to add in a future update?
    • What kind of different background options would you want to have on Windows 10?
    • Is there a way to do this that is easy enough for a non-programming casual PC gamer to understand and implement?
    • I bring this up only because I have seen some "Magic Fix" on a post from 2015 that I tried involving using the Windows Run
    • And it didn't work at all. Just took me back to the Background page under Settings -> Personalization
