Windows 7: Stretching a wallpaper on a secondary monitor

Stretching a wallpaper on a secondary monitor

Hi,

I'm currently running two monitors with a NVidia 9600 GT card. I'm trying to figure out how to stretch the wallpaper on the secondary monitor. I've selected stretch in my wallpaper settings which applies perfectly fine to the primary monitor.

They are running as different resolutions.

(Screenshot attached, monitor on the right is the primary one.

Thanks!

Can you post the original Wallpaper. It will lose its quality if you re-size it to your monitors resolution. How about flipping the right one so it meets up with the left one?

I've just got the wallpaper set to shuffle through all of my pictures, it happens for all of them. I don't mind losing quality on them, I just really dislike having a big black border around all my wallpapers on the secondary screen.

I don't understand what you mean about flipping it? If I make the secondary monitor the primary it will stretch the wallpaper on that one but ceases to do it on the other.

You need a wallpaper at both your monitors resolution, in this case 3599*1080!!

By flipping the right one into the left one and making the wallpaper 3599*1080.

If you post the wallpaper i will show you what i mean.

Try this one, it should stretch across both monitors now.

When I'm using two monitors, I personally use http://www.displayfusion.com as it gives many options.
