Windows 7: Dual-Monitor wallpaper sizing issue

10 Nov 2014   #21

Win 7 x64

i know this is a 2 year old thread but someone might stumble upon this ( like me ), would like to show you how i did this w/o having to download any software related to dual monitors.

I have a 1366x768 main display and 1920x1080 extended monitor. They're set up in a way that both displays are aligned on the top, the smaller monitor is on the left and the bigger one on the right.( go to Control Panel ->Appearance and Personalization -> Dislplay -> Screen resolution )

1. I created this image ( ). Obviously didn't make the actual image, i just merged them. The one on the left is the smaller image for my laptop display and the other one is for the extended display.

2. Set as desktop background ( tiled ).

3. Magic!

so you just created a wide image and it just wont show the part thats on the different screen thats not on now I have a 1980x1050 main display and a 1920x1080 secondary display I want the same image on both screens just scaled properly, the 1080 screen always has some black bars on all sides since the 1050 screen determines the size of the wallpaper to be honest I have since given up on anything getting fixed with windows and have stopped using it for anything other than gaming - linux is my main computer because simply put, it works and there is nothing I cant do on linux I can on windows other than gaming but thats going to change soon

you can still follow the steps i mentioned, but the sizes would be different for the same image.
