adjust desktop streatch in windows 7

I have two monitors running windows 7.  When I'm on the desktop my primary monitor is fine but my secondary monitor doesn't fill the whole sreen. There is a black bar at the top and bottom of the page.
I can't seem to figure out how to streach the wallpaper to fill the whole screen. Can someone show me how this is done.
Please no links. Just a simple answer would be appreciated.

Regards,
Tplayer

I have noticed one thing, there is a difference between fill (as on the left frame), and fit (as on the right frame).

Make sure you choose fill to fill the whole screen.

Don't know about Win7 cause i dont have time installing it yet. But in Vista there's no way we can do it without third party's software. I'm using DisplayFusion which is free and can be download here (http://www.binaryfortress.com/displayfusion/) and it works very well for me. Hope that i will do the job for you, too.

Are you sure that this is related to the wall paper size, not the monitor settings? This seems to be a function of the monitor, and has nothing to do with the wall paper.

If nothing is displayed on the top and bottom black stripes, (including the task bar of windows), then it is a monitor problem, and you might be able to fix it from the controls of the monitor.

Here you can see the difference between my two monitors. The second monitor is bigger than the primary but it sould still fill the screen. I tried the dislay fusion and it did seem to work but when it changed the picture to a solid blue color. I do think it will work if I can figure out where these pictures are actually stored on my computer.

You were very close. In windows 7 you must set the desktop to "center" not streatched as I had it before.
Since you were closest and ultimaltly lead me to the solution I accept your answer as partially correct.
