Many users choose to add extra monitors to their computer. This is known as extending your desktop. One of the main benefits of extending your desktop is that you can multitask more easily. Additionally, extending an image, such as a photograph of a mountain range, across multiple monitors can make everyone in your office jealous as they walk by your desk. Fortunately, you can extend your wallpaper without having to purchase an expensive third-party program.
