Dual monitor support and print screen

Some days before we started using dual monitors and it was working fine. One of the users showed me something of which I was not able to answer. So, with the 2 monitors now active, when you do a print screen then it captures what ison both monitors. So, is there any way to only limit this to the default monitor such as monitor number 1? I am on Windows XP SP2 with the latest updates installed on my computer.

Can you try to hold down the Alt key and then click PrintScr. After that active folder will be captured.

I agree with the above solution give, when you press the key combination "Alt+PrintScrn", it will capture the active desktop or windows. Also, MWSnap is alternative choice to easily capture screen or any area on the desktop according to your operation.
