    Howdy folks,

    I just set up two 19" plasmas right next to each other on my WinXP SP2 machine, each with a max resolution of 1280x1024. I'm wondering if it's possible to turn each into a seperate desktop or how I can set each monitor to have a seperate wallpaper.

    If that's not possible, where can I go to get a wallpaper that will stretch across both screens?

    Any ideas? Thanks!

    What I ended up doing was finding www.dualscreenwallpaper.com, setting one of those as the wallpaper, maxing out the resolution on both monitors and it stretches perfectly between the two screens.

    Only thing I'm wondering now is if you can somehow get a different wallpaper for each screen.

    Dual head card. Guess the site got hammered. It worked earlier.
