Set different wallpapers for multiple monitors in Windows 10

Background images on Windows PCs are a very popular thing that many users deal with several times a year. Again and again you are looking for great wallpapers for your desktop. As you this wallpaper can define you know probably already. Today we want to go into how you can display different desktop images on multiple monitors .

So if you have 2, 3 or even 4 monitors connected to your PC, you can of course display a different background image on each monitor . This works as follows in two different ways.

Background settings

Simply open the Windows 10 settings window using the Windows key + “I” and enter ” Background Settings” as the search term . Then the following window appears.


In this setting window for the desktop background you only have to click with the ” right mouse button ” on the desired background image and then you can choose on which of your monitors the desired desktop image is to be displayed. In this way you can then choose different desktop wallpapers.

Control Panel / Appearance and Customization

There is also a second way via the “old” control panel . Most users who have already worked with Windows 7 or earlier will know this way. Simply call up the control panel ( Windows key + X – control panel ) and then call up the following points

Presentation and customization / customization / desktop background

The window looks a little different here, too, not in the Windows 10 look.


But here, too, it works exactly the same way, simply select the desired background image and select the corresponding monitor with the right mouse button.
