Vspot use to do these every once and awhile, not sure if we have on CPT. I picked out a new wallpaper over the weekend so I want to show it off.

From the game Firewatch. I have had the previous wallpaper since GotG came out. I didn't realize that Windows now picks the accent color automatically off of the background. Weird seeing stuff orange when it was blue for so long.

Omg, turn off Cortana and remove her from the toolbar. Remove the Windows store too and the xbox app.

Plus...you don't have the toolbar going across both monitors?!
After you add that, be sure to turn this on:

The default is having it on. I took it off because I don't want it on both.

The amount of amateur hour you are displaying in this thread is painful.

Why would I want it to look like windows XP?
And why would I want my tool bar to go all the way across? I have everything I need on my toolbar on my main monitor. Having it on the second monitor just takes up screen space for no reason. The only benefit to having it go all the way across is that it looks more uniform when you take a screen shot. And having Cortana on the tool bar lets me simply type the program I want without having to scroll through everything on my hard drive.

So you can access things on the second monitor when the first monitor is in full screen mode. Easier to keep closed windows straight if they are minimized to the toolbar that they are living on.

Fair. I just do Windows key + type in.

That is a good point. I guess I've only ever used dual monitors at work where I don't have things in full screen mode. Maybe I'll end up changing that.

Jocelyn hates this. Thinks I'm some kind of anime lover now and I shouldn't have this as a background where anyone in the basement can see it. I really like it though!

She's right. It's basically pr0nog and you should be ashamed.
