    Creators Update - Cannot set different wallpaper per monitor


    Hi all

    I just updated to the Creators Edition and my link to the classic wallpaper chooser (that I got from this site) is now opening up the default personalisation screen. Meaning that I no longer have the ability to set a different background per monitor.

    I was previously using a shortcut to C:\Windows\System32\control.exe /name Microsoft.Personalization /page pageWallpaper

    Is there any workaround, beyond having to stitch images together, to get this to work?

    Many thanks

    Ignore me - I am so used to using the Wallpaper chooser workaround, I didn't notice that you can right click an image from the new personalisation area and set the monitor

    I am still having issues, I have 8 monitors, seem you can only cycle between 5 images, then you have to browse to another and that resets the entire process.

    Right clicking images from the personlization area did not automatically work for me, and the previous work around that I was using was also not working. However, I have discovered this one:
    hitting the Windows+R keys, then typing in (or copy/paste)

    shell:::{ED834ED6-4B5A-4bfe-8F11-A626DCB6A921} -Microsoft.Personalization\pageWallpaper
