    wallpaper stretches, won't tile or anything else

    I saw a similar thread in January, but it's closed and didn't have my answer. Win 7 pro, 64 bit. I seem to recall that this problem started some time after I bought the computer.
    I have two monitors, and want the wallpaper to span both monitors. If I set the nice wide photo to Tile in a program like Irfanview, I get what I want. (I find no option to span the monitors). However if I reboot or disconnect the extra monitor, the picture reverts to Stretch, resulting in a comically squeezed photo. Setting the wallpaper to Tile in the personalize settings has no effect, regardless of the number of monitors. Only a third party app gets me what I want, but that's a nuisance.

    Anybody know how I can make personalize adjust the wallpaper the way it's supposed to?

    When you disconnect the extra monitor, do you go through and change your settings in Win 7 to reflect only one monitor. It may be that Windows still thinks there are two monitors even though one has been disconnected.

    Good question. My system automatically detects the removal of the extra monitor (the settings change when I remove or add a monitor). Reconnecting the monitor doesn't return the wallpaper to its "tiled" configuration. I get two squeezed wallpapers, one on each monitor.
