- With Windows 10 and Windows 11, you can personalize your desktop with different wallpapers for dual monitors.
- This way you can create a more varied environment according to your tastes. We tell you two easy ways to do it.
If you have multiple monitors connected to your computer, you may want to customize them with different wallpapers. In addition, you can choose between using the options offered by the operating system or installing third-party applications, which give you more customization possibilities.
Although setting backgrounds on one monitor may be simple, repeating the same process on two or more monitors may not be an easy task for many, but it is also not as complicated as it seems.
If you want to personalize your desktop with different wallpapers for each of your monitors, you have two simple options that we will show you below. One is to use Windows 11 ‘s personalization settings, where you can choose an image for each monitor with a simple right click.
The other is through the old wallpaper menu, where you can adjust the size, position and rotation of the images.
Method 1: Personalization Settings
- Open the Start menu and select Settings.
- In the window choose Personalization and then Background.
- In the Customize Background section, right-click on the background image you want to set on a specific monitor.
- Now, from the context menu, select Set for monitor 1, Set for monitor 2, or any other monitor you have connected to your Windows 11 computer. In addition, this procedure also applies to virtual desktops.
Method 2: Personalization Menu (Windows 10 Only)
If you want to have more options to adjust the wallpapers of your monitors, you can use the classic method, that is, the old customization menu on Windows 10 computers.
Follow these steps:
- Press Windows + R keys to open the Run dialog box.
- Type: control /name Microsoft.Personalization /page pageWallpaper and press Enter.
- This will open the old wallpaper selection menu available in Windows 10.
- In the Background section, click the Browse button.
- Navigate to the folder containing the wallpapers you want to use, select an image and right-click on it.
- In the context menu, select the monitor you want to assign it to.
If you are looking for more advanced and user-friendly options, there are third-party applications that allow you to customize wallpapers on multiple monitors in a more intuitive way. For example, DisplayFusion or Lively Wallpaper are some of the most popular in the Microsoft Store and allow you to create collage, animations, effects, and much more.
