Exclamation Solved: Printing the "Active" window with dual screens. Hotkey?
I am working in an office that uses dual screens to view stocks and things. When the users hit PrtSc, the system prints BOTH screens. I thought there was a hotkey that allows printing of the "active" screen only. The users are not in a position to paste things to the clipboard or snip. They just need a quick print of their ACTIVE screen. Any help would be fantastic! Thanks, Kat.

never tried on dual screens
To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key.

or there is a program called PicPick
if they can install program

That solution is very similar to what I meant by using the clipboard or snip tool. They'd have to open a separate document and they seem a bit too impatient for that. Thank you though!

as for PicPick, that would be something that each individual PC would have to download if they are not networked together?

I got it! Alt+Left Shift+PrtSc does the trick! Thank you for your help though!
