One of the coolest features about Windows 10 is that it’s a very customizable operating system, and if there isn’t an option, you can always change a setting in the registry to create your own custom change.

Now, if you have a multi-monitor PC setup running Windows 10, you probably want to personalize your experience by setting different wallpapers for each monitor. As such, in this new Windows 10 tutorial, we’ll go through the easy steps to do just that:


  1. Create a folder anywhere in your system, preferable in your Pictures folder, and add the images you want to set in your multi-monitor setup.
  2. Select all the images using the mouse or Ctrl + A keyboard shortcut.
  3. Right-click the images, and click Set as desktop background.

Now, you should be able to see different wallpapers per monitor.
