    Go to tutorials and pick Appearance and Personalization. It's there.
    Okay, I found the tutorials on this site, but haven't found the one that you are suggesting. Can you please post a link here to it?

    I can't find the original one either. Here's another one that may help.

    OP asks about having the same background on both monitors with the desktop slideshow. As of Windows 8 and newer (including Windows 10), that's not possible unless you use the Tile or Span fit options. If those don't suit your need, you would need to use a third party wallpaper management application.

    Hi,
    When I upgraded to Windows 10, all of a sudden, my NASA Hidden Universe slideshow theme displays different photos on my dual monitors. I prefer having the same picture displayed on both, as it did on Windows 7. Can anyone help?

    I'm running Windows 10 Professional.
    Thanks,

    Hey you've probably already found the solution for this but I was having the same issue someone told me to put in Tiled mode and make sure shuffle was on. It worked for me. I hate posting to a thread this old but these old threads are the only thing that come up when you google it so wanted to post the answer for others having the same issue.

    Thank you! I had not found a solution, and I'm thrilled that you responded. I'll try that solution.

    Yup, I can.

    you could write a powershell script.
    Powershell
    # Path of my slideshow
    $wallpaperPath = "C:\Users\YOUR_USER\Pictures\bgr"
    # Select random File from path
    $wallpaperFile = Get-ChildItem -name -Path $wallpaperPath | Select-Object -index $(Random $((Get-ChildItem -Path $wallpaperPath).Count))
    Set-ItemProperty -path "HKCU:\Control Panel\Desktop" -name wallpaper -value $wallpaperPath\$wallpaperFile
    1..100 | % { rundll32.exe user32.dll, UpdatePerUserSystemParameters }

    save it as wp-slideshow.ps1

    and create a scheduled task with the properties:

    • powershell.exe (arguments: \Full\path\to\your\wp-slideshow.ps1)
    • when you're logged inevery X minutes
    • as your user
    • make sure you tested it first in powershell and remove necessary restrictions

    Try going to settings/ display and look a the multiple monitor section and select "Duplicate desktop on 1 and 2.
