How to stretch a wallpaper across two monitors in Windows?

The advantages of having more than one monitor hooked up to your machine are far beyond the price you’ll pay for them, Power users are often seen using two, three or sometimes as many as six monitors.

Apart from being super helpful on the desk, they also add a certain look to your setup. If you get your monitors right, your work desk is going to be perhaps the most beautiful place in your house. Not to mention your productivity will skyrocket. 

Like with any setup, how your monitors look on the outside is just as important as how they look on the inside. I mean wallpapers.

With one monitor, you might just set it out the way you’d like and leave it forever. Maybe the wallpaper goes with the RGB of your CPU or the colour scheme of your room. With two monitors, you have a lot of space to be extra creative with the look you want.

Running two separate wallpapers or the same wallpaper on both the monitors can be off-putting depending on your taste. In this article, we explain how you can get one nice wallpaper across your monitors. But before we get into the ‘how’ we need to find a suitable wallpaper.
