Alright, I'm so excited about this, I got a monitor to get plugged into my Macbook Pro. At first, the backgrounds for both screens were the same. But then I messed around with it and now they have two different screens (I have it on change it every time I wake up and random order)

How can I sync it?

-Thanks!

Set the display mode for "mirror".

I don't want the windows to be the same for both monitors, just the wallpaper itself.

Wow, I am so unhelpful. I forgot to mention that I want both to have random other but the same wallpaper. So first day, it is first wallpaper on both. Then the next day, the second wallpaper comes on both.

Makes sense to me. Don't know how to do it but he wants his desktop set to change every day in a random order, but both screens (not mirrored) always have the corresponding pictures on them.
