if you hold "alt" when you hit the "print screen" key it will take pic of only whatever program you are currently in.. for example, the task manager...
then just paste it in any program of your choice, mspaint, photoshop.. whatever..

When you hit Print Screen and then paste into an image editor, what happens? Is there just nothing to paste?

Try going to Options and uncheck "always on top?" Dunno if it'll help, but can't hurt to try.

Yeah... I don't run dual displays though. If you want shots of each tab I can do that for you no problem. Send ya the bitmaps so they don't look crappy from compression.
