Photo Screensaver with multiple displays

I have long used dual monitors (as  an extended desktop) and the My Pictures Slideshow in Windows XP as the screensaver and a great way to enjoy a ten year collection of family photos.I have been unable to get the The Windows 7 offerings to use both monitors; only the the primary shows pics, the other is dark. Has anyone found a way or a software product that uses the complete desktop; i.e. both displays. Both computers have NVIDIA graphics card.

Hello all,


Thanks for bringing this to our attention. There was an oversight with the post being marked as an answer in this thread, and our processes now include additional measures to help prevent this from occurring again.


The issue discussed in this thread regarding Windows 7 and photo screen saver only showing on the primary monitor is working as intended. There may be third party software that allows a photo screen saver to display on multiple monitors.


If you wish to leave feedback for Windows 7 and request this feature in future versions, you may do so here.
