    Default Multi-monitor wallpaper setup Windows 10

    I have 2 x ASUS VG258Q monitors.

    I have set individual wallpapers for each of them but the trouble I'm having (or at least Windows 10 is having) is that when the monitors come out of "sleep" mode both monitors revert back to displaying the same wallpaper (monitor 1's wallpaper) on both monitors.

    I cannot figure out what needs to be done to stop this from happening. I'm not using slide show and have set the specific image for each individual monitor...

    Any ideas.... googling has yielded results for "fixes" I've already tried but still no joy.

    Thanks,

    UPDATE:

    Ok so the "theme" settings show that it is using slideshow BUT in the "background" tab this is set to "Picture" so I suspect that is the issue BUT there is no option (that I can see) which allows me to change the "Theme tab's setting" from slideshow to picture, clicking on the "slideshow" button on the theme settings tab just takes me back to the background tab and so begins the infinite loop of silly Windows 10 behaviour?

    Yes I've been looking at similar programs but in the end i opted for creating a new wall paper where I combined the 2 images I want to use... problem solved....stupidly resolved but resolved nonetheless.

    I was going to test and see if mine did that but I keep forgetting. I tend to use slideshow and it updates the wallpapers 1 at a time every few minutes and that works fine.
    I've never seen it revert the wallpaper when set to picture though. I assume you have the monitors set up as extended desktop / independent displays ?

    Yep I have them setup as extended desktop.... I'm not familiar with "independent displays"? What does this mean?

    I just had that in case you didn't know what extended display meant, I was meaning the same thing.

    Do you sync wallpaper settings with any other PCs? that might explain why it changes itself back if you do.
