Screen saver cut off

May 28, 2016 1:51PM PDT

So I have just bought a second monitor and it is 1920*1080 and my former monitor is 1920*1200. The new monitor is set up as primary and the old one is placed slightly higher than my new one (they arent in the same height level) so I have set in windows display settings that when I mouse over it is possible only on half of the screens (eg - my mouse is on the bottom of the second monitor and when i go left, the mouse will appear in the middle of the lower one). When I set up screen saver, the picture appeares only on the lower monitor and gets cut off, the bottom of the picture starts in the height as the higher monitor's bottom. Do you know guys how to fix this or if there is any screen saver program that I can use instead of the windows default that would fix it?

Thank you for a quick response but unfortunately that is not what am I looking for. He is looking how to fit a picture onto one monitor setup. My problem is Windows is stupidly moving the image upwards to fit the lower bottom of the higher monitor.

I'll have to try this later today. I didn't search for apps because you can do that on google but if you say the stock photo screen saver doesn't stretch on dual screens, I'll have to re-test that.

No suitable app

I have tried googling but the only apps that would be useful to me are paid, which for a student paying 20 dollars for a screensaver app seems stupid. Maybe I didnt come across the right one.

It was great stuff over the years but for me I just have the screens shut off rather than burn Watts. But it's a title I do recall worked.

Almost trhough the chores and will try W10 on dual screen soon.
