ok I have dual moniters and I have dual moniter desktop images but cant seem to get them to stretch accross both of them even though I have it set to act like one big desktop, I have tried everything I know to do so I turn to you guys. I'm sure its something simple that im overlooking but it may not be.

There's a good FAQ on using dual monitors here. It may be of some use to you.

ok that is a very useful guide thank you but on the topic I posted the guide refers to win 98 and I have winxp also I have tried the "tile" option and the screen just stacks a bunch of the images up in a grid like pattern.

Can you please describe what it currently looks like if you cannot get it to stretch over both monitors.

well tileing does what I said before, stretch will show the same image on both moniters, and center will center it in the center of each screen ( same on both moniters )

I'm just guessing here but if tile stacks multiply copies of the image next to each other then I suspect that your image isn't large enough. Try resizing the image to make it larger. For example if you are running your resolution at 1024x786 on each monitor, resize the image to 2048x786 and then reset it as the desktop image.
