    I wonder how I would be able to set some of these as MY wallpaper, since I have a standard monitor (no widescreen, maybe 4:3 aspect ration, that’s what it is called probably). Maybe I’ll need to crop them according to my needs…

    @Hatryst – You could definitely crop areas out of these pics and get some terrific looking images to use as wallpaper on your computer. ^_^

    Dear How-To-Geek,

    Please make posts like this for those of us with 3 monitors. You find the prettiest pictures, and I can’t use any of them.

    I go to and deviantart for most of my walls. Both sites have a good selection and you dont get bombarded with BS ads.

    For a novice, can anyone explain how to make one image split across two monitors? I’m using Windows 7, looked in the Control Panel/Display options and can’t figure it out. Currently I have the same image showing on both monitors.

    Thanks in advance.

    I have the same issue that @Kathy has, the same image is showing on both monitors.

    Kathy and Amr, I use

    Johns Background switcher

    I have the same issue as Kathy & Amr. I really want one wallpaper spread across both screens

    @Kathy, Amr ElGarhy, & Spoony – Here is an app that will let you span the same wallpaper across two monitors or use a different wallpaper for each so that you get the best of both. ^_^
