Windows 7: 2 Monitors

Win7 Ultimate x64
2 Monitors

Alright, I have 2 monitors.
The thing is, is there a way to disable one of them WITHOUT unplugging the cable?
Each time I take a screenshot, I keep seeing the other screen which usually have nothing on it, and the file turns out bigger and meh meh.
Any help? :>

Hello Leimone,

Try this - Dual Monitor Software to Control Dual Monitor Computer

You can set a right-click option to enable/disable a monitor.

I will warn you, after so many weeks, the software will start to report that it has expired, but you can still have full use of the software, you just have to put up with the dialog box.

Its a good program for what it does.

It's pretty easy to crop images. Try Xnview.
