I use 3360x1050 wallpapers so that they strectch the entire extended display, but they seem to display in the wrong order. I should see the left half of the wallpaper on my laptop and the right half on the LCD, but it is backwards.
Is this a bug?
My name is Richard; I am part of the Dell Online Community Outreach group. You had said that you use the LCD on the right side and it has been set as the primary display. Which ever display has been set as the primary will determine where the wallpaper begins, and then extends to.
The way you have it set up the physical display positions, the D830 display should be set as primary and the LCD set as secondary. Primary basically sets the multiple displays setting from left to right, primary being the first.
If you must set the LCD as primary then you will have to physically move the LCD to the left of the portables display. To better configure the settings go to the NVIDIA Control Panel (right click on desktop); select “Display” and then “Change display configuration” (manual not automatic). On option #1 select "Configure independently from each other (Dualview)”. Then on option #2 (Select the display you would like to use) you will see that the dropdown menu will show the available displays and the order options. Notice the drop down menu does not ask about primary or secondary display options.
Primary and secondary display selection is not important as they are really terms. Trust the NVIDIA "Change Display Configuration" tool it will work for you.
Best of luck!
