Do you have a second monitor and want to have a different wallpaper on it than your primary display in Windows 7? It’s easy to do and here we’ll show you how.
First, open up your personalization control panel. You can do this by right-clicking on the desktop and choosing Personalize from the menu, or by going to Start Menu > Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Personalization.
Once the Personalization control panel is open, click on the Desktop Background link near the bottom.
On the Desktop Background screen, you’ll see a drop down list labeled “Picture position” near the bottom. This is where you can select whether you want your wallpaper to be tiled, centered, or stretched. For our purposes, we’ll choose “Stretch”.
Now, click on the Browse button and navigate to the location of the image you want to use as your second monitor’s wallpaper. Once you’ve found it, click on it once to select it and then click on the Open button.
The image will now appear in the Desktop Background list.
If you have more than one image in the list, you can use the up and down arrow buttons to rearrange their order. The image at the top of the list will be used as the wallpaper on your primary monitor, while the image at the bottom will be used on your second monitor.
If you only have one image in the list, then it will be used as the wallpaper on both monitors.
Once you’ve selected the image you want to use as your second monitor’s wallpaper, click on the Apply button to apply the changes.
You should now see the image you selected appearing on your second monitor. If you want to change it back to using the same wallpaper as your primary monitor, simply select the image and click on the Remove button.
