Multi-monitor Background Wallpaper
The Multi-monitor Background Wallpaper feature lets you overcome Windows inherent limitations
for desktop background picture in a multiple display environment. By default, Windows
clones its "Desktop" settings from the "Display Properties" dialog
onto each monitor identically, i.e. displays the same background color and picture on all
monitors without distinguishing them or considering their relative layout. So, even if you
specify the picture large enough to cover the entire composite desktop - you will nevertheless
see only the left-top part of that picture on each monitor. Also, there's no possibility
to configure separate background settings for different displays.
Multi-monitor Background Wallpaper brings on the missing features when
customizing the multi-monitor desktop background:
you can either stretch a single background picture over the entire composite desktop
or specify individual background pictures on each display forming the desktop. In addition,
you can turn on the advanced slideshow mode
that will flip pictures from various sources on the background (including Google Image Search and Flickr).
Hint Stretching a single picture better suits for nearly placed monitors
aligned horizontally or vertically, inspiring the continuality and uniformness of all available
screen space, which can significantly improve the overall look-and-feel of your desktop.
Specifying individual settings for different monitors is recommended when you use each monitor
for a separate purpose: different backgrounds will help you to instantly distinguish such
