    Is there any easy way to have two different wallpapers on each screen? The way I've been doing it is to go into Customize Desktop and add an individual picture to the desktop through the Web tab, but that causes the icons on the desktop to look horrible for some reason.

    Create your wallpaper by joining two pictures together.

    My monitors are 1024 x 768 resolution, I create a 2048 x 765 image using Irfanview to join the images. Then it spans exactly, giving a picture on each.

    But how do I get the wallpaper to span across both screens? When I add a wallpaper, it just puts one of that picture on each screen.

    I assume XP (which is what my crystal ball says, as you do not mention it, but it really would help to know)

    Create a picture twice the width. As explained above

    When you set it as a desktop chose "Tile", not "Center" or "Stretch"

    Then it spans both desktops. If its not double width it gets stretched

    Awesome, it worked. And yeah, I have XP.

    Heh, I never even thought of trying tile. Thanks a lot.
