How To: Set Different Wallpapers for Multiple Monitors in Windows 10

Set Different Wallpapers for Multiple Monitors in Windows 10

Windows 8 had an easy "Set for monitor" option that allowed you to use different wallpapers on a multi-monitor setup—an option that is seemingly absent from Windows 10. But with a quick command, you can easily restore this function on Windows 10, so that it behaves like Windows 8.

To begin, simply hit the Windows + R keys to bring up the Run menu, then type or paste in the following:

  • control /name Microsoft.Personalization /page pageWallpaper

That's it! When you hit Enter, the "Desktop Background" setting will appear. From there, just right-click an image and choose which monitor you'd like it to display to.

I've tried various things I've found on the internet, but to no avail. This method had me discover this. Can anyone explain?

Thanks. And it also allows back the slideshow at 10 seconds interval!!!!

These wallpaper settings was a reason I had just upgraded my tablet to Windows 10 and not doing it on my 2 desktops and 2 laptops. I like fast changing wallpapers. Now that I know they are still there I might upgrade (hopefully MS will not remove them in future updates)

Great! Found many solutions on the internet. Didn't try them though, but none of them were as easy as this one! THANK YOU!
