Windows 7: Triple Monitor Wallpaper Issue

09 Apr 2016   #1

Win 7 Pro 64 bit
Triple Monitor Wallpaper Issue

Hello Forum. Although I have solved the issue, I thought to post
it here. Perhaps there is a better way around the issue.

I upgraded my video card to an AMD FirePro w5000. I now have 3 Samsung
SyncMaster 204B monitors attached running native 1600x1200. Displaying
wide wallpaper 4800x1200. the problem I encountered was the wallpaper would
not display correctly left to right across the displays. I moved monitors, I switched
cables, I set the order for the monitors in Win7 resolution window. Problem is:
I want the center monitor to be the primary display. That I can do. Makes no
difference if the monitors are left to right 123, 321, 213, 132. Cursor moves
properly across all three. Yes the monitors have to match the sequence spec in
the resolution screen. The problem is the left 1/3 image of the wallpaper image always
displays on the selected primary monitor, no matter where it is in relation to the other two.
By having it in the center, I could never get the wallpaper display in correct order.
Very disturbing until I finally figured it out.

Solution was to write a program to modify the wallpaper bitmap file by swapping the
1600x1200 image chucks around so as to then display correctly as wallpaper. Oh well,
it works. Looks good too. just thought I would pass this information along.
