How To Set 2 Or More Wallpapers On Windows 10 Dual Display

Windows 10 is not very different from Windows 8 when it comes to looks. At first glance, a novice might not even recognize the changes made to the update’s UI. There is a plethora of subtle changes from its predecessors in Windows 10 though. From the distinctive Start menu to Cortana, Windows 10 offers a completely new shade of Microsoft’s famous desktop OS. If you want to show off your copy of Windows 10 to friends, a good idea might be to set some wallpapers that adhere to this theme. Our post on the collection of such wallpapers might help you in this case. If you really are a stickler for wallpapers, and use Windows 10 dual display options, using separate backgrounds on all monitors can sound like a very good idea. Fortunately, this is not as difficult to achieve as one might imagine.

We are not saying that the trick we are about to discuss is unique to Windows 10 dual display properties. The option is really intuitive, and all we did was test if it works on Windows 10 as well. If you are using more than 2 displays (which is unlikely, but you never know) this method will work all the same, though we are covering it assuming that you are using Windows 10 dual display.

Managing Windows 10 Dual Display Wallpapers

  1. Put two images in a folder of your choice, or on the desktop.
  2. Select the images, and right-click one of them.
  3. Choose the ‘Set as desktop background’ option from the resulting context menu.
  4. Now that you have set up a slideshow on your computer, it is time to use each image separately. To do this, open Run.
  5. Enter the following command;
    control /name Microsoft.Personalization /page pageWallpaper
  6. Now that you are in the personalization menu of Windows 10, all the images present in the current folder show up. Simply choose them at will, and assign each to the monitor of your choice.
  7. Apply the changes before exiting from the Control Panel.

Of course, the changes made this way are temporary, and you will lose them whenever a new system update gets installed. To avoid this, the best solution is to save the configuration as a theme.
