Windows 7: Multimonitor Wallpaper

Multimonitor Wallpaper

I recently (kinda sorta) got three monitors (24" 1920 x 1080) for my rig and I have them working they way I want (extended desktop) except for the wallpaper. Right now, the slide show works fine (new wallpaper every hour) but I'm getting the same wallpaper individually on each monitor instead of it being extended over all three, even if I make wall paper that is 5760 x 1080. How do I fix this?

Set your wallpaper settings in Personalization on your desktop to Tile.

Thanks! It finally dawned on me that I need to rearrange my cables. Otherwise, the left third of the image is on the right monitor, the center third is on the left monitor, and the right third is on the center monitor. Since there is a HDMI splitter involved (clones the right monitor with the TV) and sorting out the cables is going to be a wee bit complicated, methinks I'll save that little project for later; I'm still recovering from being out of town for the last two months.

Ok, got the cables rearranged; what a nightmare (old age sucks)! I also had to move my primary desktop from the right side to the left side. Otherwise, the desktop would be fragmented. Not exactly the way I wanted it but it's fully functional and I will eventually adapt. Now to make more 5760 x 1980 wallpapers.

Multimonitor software?
At the moment I'm using displayfusion which is good, but the free trial ran out so you can't even have a secondary taskbar anymore... Any other good alternatives or would it be worth buying the pro version?

Before I upgrade to Windows 7, i wanted to ask whether or not you can use multimonitor with an onboard graphics chip and a PCI-E 2 graphics card. They both connect via VGA ports, and for the moment I'm in XP. If you need any more info, just ask for it. Thank you.
