    Question regarding Windows 10 desktop background functions


    Hey, so I'm wondering if there is a way to have different desktop background settings on two monitors. On my main monitor, I would like a a constant image but on the secondary monitor, I would like a desktop background with the slideshow function. Is this possible, and if so, how?

    Thanks in advance

    Hello Reznock and welcome to the TenForums

    I don't think its possible at the moment but MS have been improving the ability to configure desktops on two or more monitors so it is worth sending your request in as feedback. See this thread for the latest on desktop backgrounds on multiple monitors and follow it to the end: Setting different Backgrounds for Dual Monitors in Windows 10

    No, it's not possible "out of the box" right now. There are probably 3rd party tools to do this though, but not sure about having one static image and one slideshow.
