    I have recently gotten the dual monitors going and now when I print screen it takes both screens. How do make this so only one screen gets copied?

    Press Alt+PrtSrn to get a picture of just the Active window.

    As far as I know .. to get just one screen requires Cropping the Paste Screen.
    I use Irfanview as my default Viewer/Editor which makes this easy.

    If u have Windows Vista.
    Click Start -> in typebox: snipping tool
    I think u have it.
    Start->All Programs->Bureau-accessoires->Snipping tool

    I'm Dutch, so I have Bureau-Accessoires on my Vista, I don't know it in English. Only that it's called Snipping tool
