No hiding/moving icons. Take a screenshot as-is, right now.

    When I got my first 1920x1200 monitor I realized that the amount of wallpapers you could use (without resorting to upscaling) decreased dramatically. Then I got another one, I decided on the weirdest combination I could think of and then it almost became impossible to find anything decent.
    I went through my entire image collection on about 60,000 files and only found about 75 images which was highres enough and had a chance of actually not looking ridiculous. However at least half of those where ecchi (and I don't want to use such as wallpaper) and the rest weren't really that pretty.
    TL;DR: Trying to find a wallpaper was a long and tedious process. I ended up with this simply because I liked the paper plane.

    The end result looks ridiculous on screenshots. First of all, I took the physical placement of the monitors into account and you simply can't avoid having a small gap between the monitors because of their frames. So I took out a small section in the middle so it looks okay in real life.
    Secondly, my left monitor is Adobe RGB and the right is sRGB, however windows doesn't do any color management on the wallpaper so I had to fix that up myself, again so it looks okay in real life.

    I actually normally have desktop icons turned off (and I disallowed all write access to that folder), but I just assembled my computer yesterday so...
    Funny enough, even after a month of inactivity and two clean installs of Win8, TS still remembered me and I didn't have to log in.

    The wheel of icons spins smoothly and can be shifted around in multiple ways. When the mouse is on the icon in the circle, it gives name/info/path for that icon as such

    However, when the mouse is on a different icon (in this case - Project 64 emulator), it monochromes all other icons as such

    I have been wanting to try this wallpaper out; the cropping is strange but it gives this "it might just work" feeling:

    (For those wondering, those three applications without icons are programs I'm currently programming or testing.)

    Here is it in real life:
