    Different slideshow folder per monitor


    Hey all,
    I have Windows 10, and was wondering about an external tool for desktop personalization. I have a triple monitor setup, and was wanting to use slideshows. That's easy, though. The thing is, I was wanting to use a different slideshow per monitor. Like, have monitor 1 take images from Folder A, monitor 2 take images from Folder B, etc. I've tried "Actual Multiple Monitors", which worked, but it had a whole bunch of other features packed in that ruined my computer's performance. Are there any other options you know of that could pull this off?
