One Wallpaper Across Multiple Screens

First-world problems on display

Ok, maybe I’m just stupid, but when I started using Windows 7 (might be valid for Vista too) I tried to have one big image span my multi-screen setup as wallpaper. I failed. Maybe it’s documented somewhere or it can be googled easily, but that’s the kind of functionality I expect to be intuitive.

But no, none of the Picture positions resulted in the desired effect. They all applied their magic on each screen independently. Great!

As it turns out I never tried Tile because, .. hello? intuitive! Gee, I’m not running Windows 3.111 that had those lousy (but memory efficient) tiles that you could tile (uh) across your screen.

I really love pixel-art but I suck at it :(
