Windows 7: Print Screen

Print Screen

Of course, it is easy to get a print screen of my primary monitor, but how do I get one on my secondary? Simply clicking on it's background doesn't work.

Doing a Google for "print screen second monitor" it seems like Print Screen should capture both monitors

Here's a link to a prior SF thread.

Hey Seek, I thought print screen snapped a single pic of both primary and secondary monitors, is this not true?

Thanks. Yes, print screen does capture both desktops, but I would like to be able to select either one or the other specifically. However, that doesn't seem to be the nature of the beast.

There may be some 3rd party apps that can do that, but i don't know any...

Yes, I'm just being lazy. It would be nice to just be able to use the keyboard function instead.

Is there something specific on your secondary screen that you want a screen gab of ? If so hold alt+Prt Scr this will capture the selected active window on any screen

MWSnap is a free one that you can try.
You can select the area you want to capture...
The ZIP download is the portable version (no install).
It looks dated, but does run in Windows 7-64.
