    It looks like the only option for multiple images is a slide show. I set my change time to 1 day. I can then use Next background to switch it back.

    Naw, OP is just confused and is (ab)using) Slideshow to set Single Picture mode. Cyberghost's post here:

    * Setting different Backgrounds for Dual Monitors in Windows 10

    lets you stay out of Slideshow mode but still set a picture for monitor via right-clicking on the particular images you want in that interface.

    They also added this feature to the 'normal' Settings page in Windows Insider beta build 10525.

    I was there and used that panel, but now I realize the reason I wasn't getting the different monitor choices when right-clicking is because I had two images selected. After clearing the selections I was then able to get the monitor selection when right-clicking on an image. Thanks!

    If you want to set a distinct wallpaper per monitor without shuffling, go to:

    control /name Microsoft.Personalization /page pageWallpaper

    from a CMD or Run prompt. Then when you're there right-click on each image and set it for that monitor.
    There is no option for setting image for either monitor. Right-clicking brings up "Set as slideshow". The "Shuffle" setting is UNchecked. "Change pictures every 30 minutes" is selected, and there is no "Off" selection, that is the default.
    I saw something on another website for editing the registry, I will have to try that.

    To summarize, I selected 2 images in the same folder and right-clicked and set as background. Now I have 2 monitors with separate backgrounds. Perfect, except they keep changing back and forth. I want to "freeze" them as the background for that monitor specifically, as others have stated.

    Nope, does not work. Background images still switch. There is no right-click option to set monitor. Right clicking the images brings up "set as slideshow" popup, nothing else.

    ***Just a thought, maybe it's the difference between laptop and desktop perhaps? I am using a laptop with a second monitor.***

    THANK YOU! Here is the solution to no option for separate monitors in the control panel settings..
    NOW the dropdown menu that says "30 minutes" by default is grayed out.

    Ok, apparently, you have to RE-do the whole WINDOWS+R then enter "control /name Microsoft.Personalization /page pageWallpaper" EVERY TIME you unplug the external monitor and plug it back in.
    But THEN it works... until the next time...

    Hi All,
    If you have a dual monitors and want to set a different background for each. You don't need third party program to set them. Here's an easy way:
    1. Copy the background images to: C:\Windows\Web\Wallpaper\Windows
      Attachment 19974
    2. Use CTRL key for multiple selection to select both backgrounds.
    3. Right click on one background->Set as desktop background


    You should have a separate background for each monitor.

    The background images will be stored under:
    %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Themes
    as:
    Transcoded_000 and Transcoded_001 without extension

    If you want to swap the images, just rename 0 to 1, 1 to 0. Sign out and sign back in or
    right click on desktop and select: Next desktop background

    Attachment 19972

    Here's an example:

    Attachment 19968
    Works perfectly thank you!

    Hmm, his looks like a new feature.

    I right-click on the desktop and select Personalize. There's a Background option drop-down with three selections: Picture, Solid Color, and Slide Show. Selecting Picture shows some pictures and a Browse option. If I right-click on a displayed image I can set for all monitors or either of the monitors. Looks like they're listening ...
