Do the following:
  • Right click your desktop, then select Properties.
  • Locate the Desktop Tab and click On it.
  • At The bottom of the Desktop Tab Select the Customize Desktop Button.
  • Click the New Button on the right of the window and select your second wallpapers location.
  • Select ok, then select Ok again on the Web Window and Apply on the Desktop Window. now your pic should be on your main screen.
  • Now Drag the Image over to the other Screen, and select Cover Desktop at the top left of the image.
  • Right click and select Arrange By and "Lock web items on desktop." Now you can select a standard desktop for your primary display and use the web object to cover the standard desktop image on your second desktop with the image of your choice."

Download DisplayFusion from Binaryfortress

Once the software is installed, you’ll notice a new tray icon. Clicking the Desktop Wallpaper item from the menu will open up the dialog where you can set the wallpaper.

You can click on each desktop in the display, and set display settings differently for each monitor, or span the wallpaper across the two.

DisplayFusion will make your dual monitor (or triple monitor or more) experience smooth and painless. With DisplayFusion you can add a taskbar to every monitor that works and looks just like the Windows Taskbar. Or take advantage of advanced multi-monitor wallpaper support, Flickr integration for image searching and fully customizable window management hotkeys. These are just a few of the many things that DisplayFusion can do.
