Windows 7: Few Windows questions

Few Windows questions

Hi guys, been a long time Mac user, just switched back to Windows and really enjoying Vista and just installed 7 and its fantastic!

There was something that annoyed me about Vista though and appears to be the same in 7. With OSX using my dual monitors I was able to select a different wallpaper for each screen or have it as the same but have each screen manage the image differently. For example I have a 1920x1080 monitor and a 1366x786 laptop display and if I have a 1920x1080 wallpaper of whatever size it may be and set it to fit or fill it looks as I wish on the main screen but on the second screen (the lower resolution laptop screen) I just see a cropped zoomed in image for example, my current one is of Olga Kurylenko and all I can see on the secondary screen is her stomach lol.

The second thing I would like to ask about is if it is possible to change the colour scheme. I have changed the Windows Colour in preferences to slate as it looks very nice with my black and white wallpaper but then with Windows using a heavy blue theme across the board (for example the tabs bar in IE, and the task bar type thing in explorer etc it kind of stands out and contradicts the subtle look of my transparent slate colour and for this reason I prefer to use the sky colour for the borders as it works nicer with the contents of the windows but doesn't look to great with my black and white background.

Anyway any help on setting up the wallpapers for multiple screens with different resolutions or colour changes would be fantastic, cheers guys.

Ahh solved my wallpaper issue now with DisplayFusion.

Now if I could just change these blue bars to match my borders better it would be perfect :)

If you mean the scrollbars, the only way to do that is with Stardock.com - Your Edge In Software which you have to pay for.

I have a huge windows.old file. I don't know why I have it, as Windows was a clean install on this drive, and much of it seems to be duplicates of content files on my program and data drives. I presume that if I make a backup disk image ofC:\ on another drive I can get rid of it. But is there...
