Display Different Wallpapers on Different Monitors in Windows 8

Windows 8 users who have a multi-monitor setup might want to have a different wallpaper on each one. Prior to Windows 8, you needed to to use a third-party utility such as DisplayFusionwhich we have covered previously.
But in Windows 8.x, the feature basic feature is already built-in, sans some the extra features a third-party utility will give you. Here’s a look at how to use it.

Different Wallpapers on Each Monitor in Windows 8

Having a different wallpaper on each monitor is easy to set up in Windows 8. In this example I am setting up a different background for a dual-monitor configuration.
Right-click an empty are on the desktop and select Personalize.
On the next screen click on the Desktop Background link toward that bottom.

Now simply browse to the location of the wallpaper you want to use. Right-click one and select which monitor you want it set as the background. Then for select another picture and set it for the other monitor.
