    How to make monitors display same background


    Ok in a pre release version of Windows 8 I was able to make both monitors display the wallpaper on both monitors. Now I have had the full version since day 1 and I still can't figure out how to stop it from displaying different pics at different times.

    Hello Jason,

    If you just wanted to have a single image to display on each display, then you could use step 8 in OPTION TWO of the tutorial below to do so instead of using a desktop slide show.


    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    I have multiple pictures, but I would like it to show only 1 pic at a time on both monitors

    Maybe use one of the panoramic themes for Win 8 from Microsoft?
