Problem Steps recorder

I just been playing with Windows 7 "Problem Steps Recorder"

I love it

You can use Problem Steps Recorder to automatically capture the steps you take on a computer, including a text description of where you clicked and a picture of the screen during each click (called a screen shot). Once you capture these steps, you can save them to a file that can be used by a support professional or someone else helping you with a computer problem.
For anybody thats not seen this yet, just type steps into your start search bar.

That's pretty cool John, I bet that would save Shawn allot of time doing tutorials.

Pretty cool. Only limit I can really see is if you want to add a comment while a menu is open, as clicking will close it. Would be even better if you could record it as a video, say like a .flv or the "Silverlight" equivalent.

Whoa, now this is cool. I wonder if this is just a beta application meaning just for 7 in beta status to report problems then they take it out when 7 is finalized. But I guess not by the sound of what the help is saying. Now if you can only have sound as well.

Nice find John

Not sure how you found it - Why would you be typing "steps" into the search bar - a music search perhaps

Have had a chance to play with this now and can see it making things easier for anyone trying to support users as the system is soo easy to use. on a phone call simple instructions to run a session with this and email it - so simple - I like it too

I think I found something. It's pretty neat (and free!) and doesn't require anything to be installed (assuming you already have Flash and Java installed). You can record right from your browser.

Problem Steps Recorder
I am running dual monitors and when I use PSR.exe it "records" both monitors even if one monitor is off. I would like to use only one monitor when running PSR, but see no option to do so. Is that just the way it is??
