How to Screenshot Only One Monitor with Dual Monitors in Windows 10

If you have a multiple monitor setup, you may have experienced difficulty in taking a screenshot of only one monitor. Fortunately, there is an easy solution to this problem in Windows 10. In this article, we will guide you through the steps of how to take a picture of only one monitor when you have two or more.

First, go to the bottom left of your taskbar and click on the Windows button. Then, type “snipping” and select the snipping tool. Once the tool opens, click on “new”. You will notice that both of your monitors now have a white overlay on them. To screenshot only one whole monitor, click on the top left of the monitor you want to capture, drag the cursor all the way down, and let go. The screenshot will appear and you can save it by pressing “ctrl+s”.

Another useful tip is if you only want to capture one window, press “Alt+Print Screen” simultaneously. This will copy a screenshot of the window that is open. Then, go to the bottom left of your taskbar and type in “paint”. Click on paint and press “Ctrl+V” to paste the screenshot. You will now have the screenshot of the one window that you selected, which you can also save by pressing “Ctrl+S”.

These simple steps will help you to easily take a screenshot of only one monitor or window, even when you have multiple monitors connected to your computer. We hope this article has been helpful in resolving your screenshot problems.
