    Is there a way to make it so that you're desktop background says horizontal or stretched even when you have your pc in a vertical tablet mode? I just don't like how half of my desktop is black when I have it in tablet mode.



    I mean without having the screen all stretched

    Thanks!

    are you in vista or xp, there are options for both to stretch the screen.

    In vista when you are selecting the desktop background, there are three panels at the bottom, one for stretched, one for tiled & one for centered.

    In XP there are the same options but it is in words, not graphically displayed.

    Re not having it stretched if you're concerned about distorting the image, use higher resolution photo's for your desktop pictures.
    preferably where the length is larger than 1280 pixels.

    It would be awesome if one could set wallpapers for each rotation state though.
    Because not all the wallpapers I like are 1280 x 1280 or more and the important part of the picture isn't always at the center.
    :(

    Do any of you know of any software that can do this?(different WP for each different rotation)

    It works, incredibly AWESOME
    Great find BerkleyJ

    1 problem though, it doesn't accept pngs as wallpapers.
