Multiple Monitor Wallpaper

There was a time, back in XP, that one could choose to use different wallpapers on each of the monitors connected to a computer...at least two of them. Is that no longer possible?

I don't know if it is natively possible with Win 7, but I have done it with DisplayFusion: Multi-Monitor Taskbar, Multi-Monitor Screen Savers, HotKeys, Multi-Monitor Wallpaper, Windows Logon Changer and more... (the free version).

Thanks, I'll check that out. After posting, I noticed that UltraMon is supposed to have that ability, but I can't seem to make it work.

That article went kind of round about, but it did work. Thanks.
