Multiple Desktop Backgrounds with Multiple Monitors

Cool Things with Multi Monitors

I’ve got multi monitors, as I’ve stated before. Well, I came across something that’s quite neat. You have the ability to have multiple background images; one for each monitor.

In order to do this, all you have to do is go to System Preferences, Click on ‘Desktop & Screen Saver’ and once you do this, make sure you click on the Desktop tab. Once clicked, the background dialog box will appear on both monitors.

At this point, each monitor is treated like a separate desktop and you can customize all of the options for that monitor. For instance, you can have one monitor that has its background change every day while the other is a static image. Or you can have one that has a solid color while the other monitor has an image. The possibilities are endless and totally up to you. It’s just a quick and simple tip, but it works.

Right now I have a picture of some lightning, a Duck Hunt background that I found on Lifehacker.

I'm into everything technology related, particularly anything Apple related. I enjoy programming and tend to lean towards server-based technologies over client-based. You can contact me on twitter, via e-mail, or follow me on friendfeed.
