My PC at work (Running Vista Business) has two monitors, the primary one with a resolution of 1280x1024 and a secondary monitor with a resolution of 1024x768.

Company wont give me two of the same size :( and my desktop background on the samller one looks silly as it is basically a center cut of a 1280x1024 sized picture.

Is there any way to set two seperate background images, one for each screen, so I don't have this problem?

I had similar issue with a 12.1" convertible tablet 1024x768 in a dock, with a 22" Widescreen 1680x1050. Didn't find a fix, but didn't hunt too hard either.

Ended up at one point with a smallish (800x00) picture that had a black background, set as an unstretched, untiled background, with the desktop itself also set to black. Looked good on both monitors, just heaps more blank space on the big one.

At work you should not be sitting staring at the desktop anyway!! Apps up, or screen locked!! :-P

I don't always have something open on the secondary monitor, and the BG bothers me. Your black BG might be a good idea seeing as I never really see the primary one anyway

Yep, Ultramon or DisplayFusion with the latter being a freebie.
