The non-free 'Pro' version of DisplayFusion also gives you multi-monitor taskbar support. It is cheaper than UltraMon and has better Windows 7 support (in my opinion).

+1 to DisplayFusion

+1 to Ultramon

 

I switch between the two every now and then.  I've been running DisplayFusion free for a while now.  While this is 1 way to do it, a free third party software will do it with a lot less work.

I don't normally buy extra software if I can do it for free, but I've found UltraMon to be a good little program that I can use for this and a few other useful things too.

I have a second monitor in portrait mode on the left side of my primary monitor. I just resorted to using the free version of DisplayFusion. But I might just give this a try for the heck of it.

I use three monitors, total 5760 X 1200. I just use panoramic pictures at that resolution. I have a moon walk one that is spectacular as well as others. Of course that will not work for those that use a hodge podge of different monitor sizes. For those people you can easily use a program such as UltraMon. Sometimes free is not the way to go just because it is free.

Exactly my way of doing it.

Really? Did you forget your reader base? I doubt any of our systems will be in any way hampered by running an app that does this for you. But regardless thanks anyway.

Yup, I've done it that way before too and it works well. I think special apps that let you use 2  different wallpapers use that same method and sitch together the wallpapers you've selected for you.
