I CANNOT set my wallpapers to show both on each screen

    I CANNOT set my wallpapers to show both on each screen


    So, HI!

    I got w8 2 days ago, and so far, mixed bag. Thought I'd sign up here so that I could always go somewhere if/when I ran into problems

    In terms of general use I found the migration of files and settings from w7 to 8 quite painless, and indeed 99% of it has moved over flawlessly. With that 1% giving me absolute hell to solve!

    So I suppose I move onto the first issue to post on here, yay for me.
    Very small issue, and quite superficial really, but no less irritating! Basically, I have 2 monitors set up, and a whole mess of lovely wallpapers. Problem is, and contrary to what I find on searches on the issue, I CANNOT set my wallpapers to show both on each screen. I.E I have my settings set to "fill" and "shuffle". In w7 it used to simply put both images on each screen, just how I like it. Now on 8, it shows 2 seperate images for the screens, which I don't want. Screenshot attached.

    I just want a way to get back the 2-of-the-same-image-on-each-screen-NOT-2-separate-images thing I want.

    Display fusion should do what you want, it has a free and a paid version.

    tried it, it attempted to duplicate my taskbar, and the free version only allows you to set one single image as the bg, rather than a folder or collection of. but thanks for the suggestion/thought
