Default dual monitor wall paper

i found some, but i cant seem to use it. how can you get the wall paper to span across 2 monitors, instead of being crammed into one?

this is the picture i am trying to use, but it uses the picture on each monitor, making it look stupid. can windows spread the pic across 2 monitors?

Use UltraMon for everything related to two monitors.

NO NO NO NO.... it'* so simple it'* not funny.....

If you've got 2 monitors that are side by side...... running 1024x768 make an image that is 2048x768 and select "center".
(at least I think it'* "center"... try "tile" or "strech"... it'* one of them... I'm not @ home to try)

So for two monitors going 1280x1024 make an image 2560x1024....


it is that simple..... I run 3 monitors..... so my background image is 3840x1024
