How to put different wallpapers on different monitors in Windows 10

Windows 10

We before one of those functionalities that we had in Windows 8 and that has suddenly disappeared in Windows 10 by magic. Surely the guys from Redmond have their reasons, but those of us with multi-monitor configurations, of which we are more and more, can be left a bit alone in this regard when before we could enjoy such a tremendous feature.

By the way, commenting on this, when you get used to this configuration it seems that a monitor seems little to you.

An option that those of Redmond have anticipated to eliminate it by default in Windows 10 to the astonishment of a few.

    I already found the solution. You must have the two images saved in the same folder (depending on the number of monitors we have, in my case only 2). Subsequently you have to press the CTRL key and then without stopping pressing this key we select the first image that will correspond to the first screen, then the second image that will correspond to the second screen, then we right click and choose the option to set as the background of screen and issue fixed.
