    im not sure exactly what to call this , but heres the best description I can give of the issue im having.

    im running windows 10 , I use a different wallpaper for each of my 2 displays. (I set this up via running this command in run ( control /name Microsoft.Personalization /page pageWallpaper ) which opens a setting menu. currently when I go to picture location , click pictures , and select a picture I would like to use and right click , instead of showing display 1 or display 2 , it instead shows , display 2 or display 2... so im unable to set a wallpaper on display 1. since its only showing 2 , display 2's. (see screenshot).

    Here also my description of when this issue started occurring.

    earlier today , one minute everything is fine , leave my computer , and after a few hours I return to it , notice the same wallpaper is on each display , even know earlier there had been a different image on each display. so I figured windows must of bugged out and checked these settings (control /name Microsoft.Personalization /page pageWallpaper) however as I said , it only shows display 2 or display 2 , so I still thought it must of been bugged or something , so I restarted my computer , and its still like that. so im not sure what to do exactly , as for the past hour I have just been messing with my display settings in the windows 10 settings display and advanced display settings , but to no luck at fixing the issue on my own.

    Here is also my computer specs if it helps at all.
