So I'm running dual monitors . . .


I got a BBA 9700 Pro, and I thought that I'd use the 2nd output for a 2nd CRT. I found a really sweet deal on an NEC MultiSync A700+ refurb, so I picked it up. I plugged it in, set it up, and now I have a bit of a problem (more of an annoyance, really).

I can't get a different desktop image onto my 2nd desktop

I've looked through the control panel options that ATI includes w/ their drivers but to no avail. Does anybody know how I could accomplish what I wanna do: have two different desktop images, one per monitor?

Thanks!

cheesy peas, that would only get you two the same desktops. Atleast I think it will...
Last time I used that it did anyways.

Very nice little program. Not freeware, however. 30 day time limit

Cheesy Peas: That just extends the same desktop image to the 2nd monitor. This lets you use a different image on each monitor, plus a boatload of other neat features.
