    Desktop Background Distortion in EL Capitan
    Has anyone else had a problem with the desktop background picture getting distorted? I am using the standard supplied Apple Pictures of El Capitan in a dual screen setup. Often, but not all the time, the picture will be "spread out" on my normal screen (28 inch landscape) or "squashed" (27 inch portrait monitor). Going into preferences and reselecting the picture fixes it, until one or two subsequent reboots. This was NOT happening before 10.11.2

    When you fix it hit the little padlock to lock the preference pane up. It will require your password to unclick it and you are not using FileVault I trust?
    Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
