Windows 7: Multiple Resolutions on Multiple Displays

Multiple Resolutions on Multiple Displays

I'm having a bit of trouble trying to get two monitors, a small 1024x768 LCD, and a 46" 1920x1080 TV, to display the same wallpaper at different resolutions. My graphics card is older, a Nvidia Quadro FX 1700, but it is perfectly capable of driving both displays at the same time. It's a minor annoyance, but I'd like to get it working if it's possible. Thanks.

There is a free piece of software that allows you to use different wallpapers easily on two different displays so you could just use two different files at different resolutions even though it would be the same background.
Here is the link:
Dual Monitors: Use a Different Wallpaper on Each Desktop in Vista or XP :: the How-To Geek
This would be a quick fix. Hope this helps.

I was hoping that I could do that without downloading a new program. Does anybody else know how you do it within Windows? If I can't, then I'll us your program, Thisislaw .

Not MY program but eh :P
It looks nice.
Anyway, try this:

Two different files of the same image at different resolutions and you should be fine.

Ok, I'll try that after my family finishes with the TV. Gotta wait for them to be finished before I can try it. Hope it works!
