    Windows 10 Dual Monitor wallpapers

    When I try set a different wallpaper on each monitor I only have the option to set on monitor 2

    Doesn't matter how I get there, (win 10 settings or control desk.cpl,,@background) the only option is monitor 2

    Hi eyesofedgar and welcome to Ten Forums!

    Could you tell us how you have your monitor configuration setup? (e.g connected via VGA, HDMI)
    Also make sure you check NVIDA's website to make sure you have an up-to-date graphics driver for Windows 10 Pro.

    Have you tried both options? (i.e clicked on first and second 'monitor 2' option)

    Have good look in your NVIDA control panel/graphics settings to see if you can configure multiple monitors somewhere in there.

    The problem sounds to me either like a driver problem or something is wrong with the way the multiple monitors have been configured.

    Tried clicking all options and results are the same, identical images on both monitors

    Anyone know of any hidden registry setting / tweaks that may be of use?

    Yep that's pretty weird. Could be a bug in Windows 10 possibly.
    Have you tried to setup multiple monitors in you NVIDA control panel?

    Seems that it could be something in your registry...

    Anyone know the path for this particular option?

    Unfortunate I don't know the path so I can't help you in the registry but I would further suggest to see if uninstalling and reinstalling the monitor drivers fix's this? Also maybe try to download a freeware program, compatible with Windows 10 that assists in arranging multiple monitors?
