    Custom Made Wallpapers (Multi Screen)


    I know there's already a custom wallpaper thread but most of those are are for single monitors. Since there are alot of people that use and need dual monitor wallpaper I thought a new thread was in order.

    So c'mon all you talented designers, let's see your eye candy for multi screens!

    Being a Beta tester for Display Fusion, which I use to make my dual monitors show different WPs, there is already a thread there for this exact idea.

    See Multi-Monitor (Dual, Triple, Quad) Wallpaper Sites

    I personally use Display Fusion (there is a free and a paid mode - paid is a one time registration fee, and the author is actively developing the app to include more features and make it more W7 friendly - one of ht hot topics is a second taskbar on a second monitor....) - the free version does allow for independent WPs on different monitors.

    See DisplayFusion: Multi-Monitor Taskbar and Desktop Wallpaper*|*Binary Fortress Software for more info. Also see Dual Monitors: Use a Different Wallpaper on Each Desktop in Vista or XP :: the How-To Geek - the How To Geek has done a write up on it.

    The point is for increased productivity.

    Thunderbird on the right, Firefox on the left - so when I click a link in Thunderbird instead of hiding it (by bringing Fx to the front) I can still continue reading other email in Tb, and I can also see the link in Fx as it opens up.

    RegeditX on the left, xplorer^2 on the right - allows me to sift through the registry and find the actual file associated with any given key without having to ALT-TAB back and forth.

    There are many reasons for dual monitors. I actually use another monitor with my laptop when I don't feel like being mobile. The uses are infinite
