Most people who use their computers to the maximum potential will all likeliness have two or more monitors attached to the PC. For reasons of productivity or just looking cool, multiple monitors do boost a setup’s looks.

However, simply putting more than one monitor on your desk won’t improve it. A lot of effort goes into perfecting a multiple-monitor setup. You need to get the angles and mountings right and ensure everything’s aligned and whatnot.

Most people go the extra mile by even putting RGB on the back of their monitors, which reflects off the wall behind them. However, wallpapers are an essential part that is often overlooked. 

Wallpapers can make or break the look of your setup. For example, if your wallpaper isn’t in line with the rest of your setup, your monitor might look out of place.

Now you can have one wallpaper extended across all your displays if that’s the look you’re going for. However, if you want to spice things up by putting different wallpapers on all your monitors, look no further.
