How to take a screenshot of just one monitor

If you have multiple monitors connected to your computer, you may have noticed that the Print Screen button only captures the image of your primary monitor. This can be quite frustrating if you want to take a screenshot of only one monitor and not the entire desktop. Luckily, there is a very simple workaround that will allow you to take a screenshot of just one monitor.

First, you will need to open the window that you want to capture on your primary monitor. Once the window is open, press the Alt + Print Screen keys on your keyboard. This will take a screenshot of the active window on your primary monitor. Next, open the window that you want to capture on your secondary monitor. Again, press the Alt + Print Screen keys on your keyboard. This will take a screenshot of the active window on your secondary monitor.

Now that you have two screenshots, you will need to open an image editing program like Paint or Photoshop. Paste the first screenshot into the program and then paste the second screenshot on top of it. Crop the image so that only the screenshot of the secondary monitor is visible. Save the image and you’re done!

This may seem like a lot of steps, but it’s actually very quick and easy once you get the hang of it. Plus, it’s a great way to take screenshots of individual windows without having to capture the entire desktop. Give it a try the next time you need to take a screenshot of just one monitor.
