After updating my graphics driver and resetting the display to default, I noticed that I can no longer display my picture of choice on multiple monitors through the personalization option. I only see the option to set a picture for monitor 1 or 2 (I have three) and the option doesn't work for separate pictures on each monitor like it did in windows 10. I don't even see an option to set a picture for monitor 3. Is anyone else having this problem and is there a work around or am I missing something. thanks.

Paste: explorer shell:::{ED834ED6-4B5A-4bfe-8F11-A626DCB6A921} -Microsoft.Personalization\pageWallpaper into a Run box and try from there.

Edwin, Thanks so much for the response. It seems to work. I can use it to set the wallpaper for all three monitors correctly. However, when I try to save the changes or close down the dialog box, it reverts to the blank solid color or the same picture for all monitors.

Hmmm..., bummer! :(
Did you, perhaps, move the wallpapers to a different location?

No, same location I had them in with Windows 10. I shouldn't have reset to the default settings when I updated the driver. Never had a problem before, but the old windows 10 method doesn't work. I guess I'll use a solid color until I can figure it out. Thanks again.
