Windows 7: Bug with Windows 7 desktop wallpaper cycler?

Bug with Windows 7 desktop wallpaper cycler?


I currently am using dual monitors on Windows 7. One monitor is a larger resolution than the other. The larger display is set as my "main" display.

I setup my own custom directory of wallpapers to be randomly cycled through. I set the wallpapers to "Fit". I noticed that on the smaller monitor, the wallpaper doesn't "fit" to it. In fact, it seems like it is using the same stretch factor for the wallpaper as the main display. The main (larger) display shows up fine, the entire wallpaper is visible. However, with the smaller display the top and bottom is clipped just a bit (Because the height is not as high, so it can't fit the entire image on there).

I expected windows to calculate the "Fit" size for a wallpaper independently of each display, however it seems like it only calculates it for the Main display and then just naively applies that to the second.

Is this a known issue? Are there any fixes?
