    Screen capture question


    I have two monitors connected to my desktop PC.

    When I press Print Screen, it only captures one of the screens.

    Last year and before, it used to capture both screens.

    Is there a setting with which I can restore the ability to capture both screen?

    Thank you for your help.

    Not a setting in particular, just press WinKey+PrtScn

    Why not use the Snipping tool?

    It requires me to outline the capture area. Too difficult.

    I want to just press Print Screen.

    Not true. Just select the down arrow next to New on the Snipping tool and select Full- Screen Snip.

    Shift+ Prt.sc captures all 3 monitors here.
