    How do I exclude a monitor from a multimonitor background?


    In Windows 8.1 you can stretch a background image across your multi-monitor configuration. There are free "panoramic themes" that MS makes available that specifically support multi-monitor configurations. I have a 3 monitor configuration and I only want to stretch it across two of the three monitors. Is this possible?

    Thank you

    Not natively with windows, but, you can use a 3rd party software to do that. Have a look here.... multimonitor software. I used both UltraMon and DisplayFusion, I prefer DisplayFusion more so, so I bought it.
