Two Different Backgrounds on Dual Monitors: A Simple Guide

Hi, I’m Tracy – your guide through the intricate world of tech at Today, we’re going to tackle a common request among dual monitor users: how to set up two different backgrounds on dual monitors.

The Benefit of Different Backgrounds on Dual Monitors

Customizing your workspace background not only makes your workspace more enjoyable, but it can also improve your productivity. For instance, you may choose a serene beach backdrop for your writing monitor and an organized board for your task management.

How to Set Different Backgrounds on Dual Monitors: Windows 10

Windows 10, unfortunately, does not have a built-in option for this. However, you shouldn’t despair! There is a workaround. Windows 10 has a feature that allows you to span one large image across two monitors. Therefore, if you can create or find an image that is double the width of your monitor resolution, you can set this as your wallpaper. This will effectively give you two different backgrounds on your dual monitors.

Alternative Software Option

If you don’t want to get into the intricacies of image editing, there’s an option for you too. You can use a software like DisplayFusion or MultiMon which allows you to easily set different backgrounds on dual monitors.
