    Have 2 Different Solid Colored Backgrounds

    Hello All,

    I am new to this forum and i hope i posted my question in the correct section.

    I am having issue setting up 2 different solid color backgrounds on a dual monitors setup. I can do the different background pictures on different monitor but not solid color. Does anyone know how to configure two different colored background on dual monitor?

    Thank you

    Hi there,

    It's not possible to set the background colour different for each monitor. But you can tweak the system.

    Make a 'picture' in Paint with the appropriate colour and save it. Then make that the background picture for your screen and select the option to fill the picture to the screen. Do this for both screens.
