    Multiple monitor wallpaper keeps switching


    I have 2 monitors in extended desktop mode and each one has a different wallpaper. I saved them as a theme but after a little while, they seem to switch witch screen they are on (monitor 1's wallpaper goes to monitor 2 and monitor 2's wallpaper goes to monitor 1). If I go back and reselect my theme, nothing happens so I have to select a different one and then reselect my theme for it to go back the way it should be. After a little while they get messed up again.

    Hello celinedrules :
    Welcome to the forums!

    Right click on Start and choose 'Run',
    enter this command control desk.cpl,,@background and click OK,
    then in the window that appears, select your source for images then select images individually,
    right click on them and assign each one to a certain monitor:
