Windows 7: Problem Steps Recorder

Windows 7 Professional X64 Service Pack 1
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??

Choosing Show desktop only in X (X = display number) in Screen Resolution records only that display, also when the display is on but disabled.

I found it too time consuming looking for an answer on this. I simply use my NVidia control panel applet to disable my second screen while I use the PSR utility. Turn it back on when done.
