    Dual monitors, set slideshow of different images on each


    Hello! My computer has two monitors, and both have always been set up to display a slideshow of wallpapers from a set folder. I turned the computer on a few minutes ago, however, and both monitors are showing the same wallpaper. I right-clicked and hit "Next desktop background", but both changed at the same time and both were still showing the same image.

    I verified that my wallpaper settings have not changed at all--they are the exact same and are set up properly according to step 10 of this tutorial.

    The only thing I can think of would possibly be that one of yesterday's updates changed something, but I can't see that being the case unless it's an unintentional bug in one of them.

    Any ideas?

    My apologies, after several restarts the problem has inexplicably solved itself.

    I am actually trying to achieve this.
    I want my mutimonitor setup to display the same wallpaper on both monitors.

    This two different wallpapers is crap in my opinion.
