A set of computer users likes to alter desktop background of their systems often. Whereas some others doesn’t give much attention to this. For the former ones Windows 8 provided the option for setting different desktop background on dual monitors. When it came to Windows 10 this got hidden. Users have all freedom to decorate their desktop according to tastes. Windows provide different options to satisfy them.

When work turns tiresome role play of surroundings becomes poignant in supporting and encouraging  the user. This can begin from the mere desktop background looks. Its not a huddle play to get a dual monitor set up background on Windows 10. Following are two types of solutions provided to the users to help them set background as they wish.



Step 1:  Windows 10 do not provide a direct option with a few clicks for this. As the first step, start pressing Windows + R keys together. This will direct you to the Run menu

Step 2 : Next you are supposed to type the following keywords Control /name Microsoft. Personalization /page pageWallpaper


Step 3 : Press Enter button which will open a window with ‘ Desktop Background ‘ settings


Step 4 : The window provides you with variety of images. Select a picture and right click on it. As the next procedure you will be asked which is the concerned monitor to be adorned with the selected image.




Step 1 : To begin with, copy the two images for the dual monitors in the folder C:\Windows\Web\Wallpaper\Windows

Step 2 : Select both the images one by one. Next do a right click on one of it and select the option ‘Set as desktop background’. Repeat the same for other too



Step 3 : These two images will be saved in %USERPROFILE%/AppData/Roaming/Microsoft/Windows/Themes now with the file names Transcoded_000 and Transcoded_001 respectively. These minor steps are completed before setting the images as background and go unnoticed to us. Thus the images are set into dual monitors of the user.


Finally to see the changes brought about, log out from the respective window and check the monitor. Inorder to interchange the images from one monitor to another just change the last digit of the filename. For example: From Transcoded 000 to 1 and Transcoded 001 to 0. Hence Microsoft makes it possible to enjoy different wallpaper for each monitor in Windows 10. Whereas this and some other options seems to be missing in Windows 8. Though they are just hidden and with the right process, the same feature can be implemented in Windows 10 interface too. Microsoft aims to enrich the existing features cum options of Windows 10 to serve users to the best.
