Dual Monitors: Some Questions
Alright, so I just bought a new monitor and I'm now using two monitors!
I had a couple questions though.
One, is there a way to make the "print screen" key only capture monitor 1 and not both? Or does anyone know of any freeware that'll do the same thing and can use PrintScreen as its hotkey (overwriting Windows' default one)?
My other question is perhaps the more important one. I like having my primary monitor on the left and my second one on the right... but, I'm too used to X'ing out windows and the mouse flies over to the right side. What I was wondering about is if there's a way to "trap" the cursor in the current monitor unless you continually move it to the right, for a couple seconds or something. That way it would be easier to move the mouse around an entire monitor without having to worry about it flying over to the other screen.
Let me know if you guys know anything about this! Thanks!

Apparently this software might help you with your mouse problems:

As far as the print screen problems, I'd suggest that you use the Alt+Printscreen function which simply captures the active window.
Jing is a print screen program that many people use, in the event that you want something more sophisticated than the normal functions of your entire visual screen(s) and just an active window.
