Wallpaper with multiple monitors

Bandalo76 asked on

I upgraded from Windows 8.1 Pro to Windows 10 Pro this morning.  I have 2 monitors, and both displays seem to be working perfectly in "extend my display" mode. 

The problem I noticed is the OS will not allow me to select a different wallpaper for each display.  When I right-click and go to "personalize", I'm only given the option of selecting one wallpaper.  It does allow the "extend" mode which stretches the image across both screens, so it's clearly recognizing the second display.

I'm not sure if this is a bug, a removed feature, or if there's simply some other setting I'm not aware of.

Anyone else seeing this?

It's really stupid this Microsoft Tech is telling you to do some things that don't have to do with the problem. The problem is dat Windows 10's Settings app is far from done, and they haven't yet implemented a way to set multiple wallpapers. Fortunately, the old way of doing it (like in Windows 8.1 and 7) is still there, but hidden.

To get there, press Windows key + R. In the dialogbox that appears, type "control /name Microsoft.Personalization /page pageWallpaper" (Without the quotes) and click OK. I hope this answers your question.
