After you download your dual monitor wallpaper, you will need to save it to the appropriate location on your computer in order for Windows to access it. By default, on Windows 7, the file path you are looking for is:
Here you should see a variety of already existing folder names like "Architecture, Nature, Winter," and so forth. Just to keep things organized, create a new folder here and name it something like "Dual monitor wallpapers." Save all of your downloaded dual monitor wallpaper into this folder and this will become the home for your new collection.
Next, right click anywhere on your Windows desktop and select the "personalize" option.
At the bottom of the new window that pops up, click the words "Desktop Background" (it should say "Slide Show" right underneath).
On this new screen, it should say "Picture Location: Windows Desktop Backgrounds," which refers to the area where you just saved your dual monitor wallpaper a couple of steps above. If it says something else, you will either have to navigate to this location or move your dual screen wallpaper folder into the location it is showing.
Now, just scroll down to the heading for dual monitor wallpaper (or whatever you called your folder) and put a check mark icon next to the wallpapers you wish to use. The next step is very important or else it will not work.
Underneath the area where you check off which wallpapers you want to display, you must select the "Tile" setting underneath the "Picture Position" options. This tells Windows that you want to display your wallpaper in a way that will make it stretch across both monitors. You can also choose how often you want your wallpapers to rotate and whether or not you would like them to shuffle.
|If you choose anything other than "tile" your dual monitor|
wallpaper will not display correctly.
