windows 7 wednesday tip–problem steps recorder

today i was installing office 2010 using the click-to-run/application virtualization technology microsoft has and decided to use problem steps recorder to “document” the process.  to my surprise on a multi monitor system, problem steps recorder captured both screens in case something on the second screen was needed in troubleshooting the issue – pretty cool!


figure 1: notice both of my monitors (one with office communicator and one with office 2010 and powerpoint) are displayed in problem steps recorder

incidentally, i noticed this same behavior with mspaint and the print screen button!


figure 2: how cool is it to be able to see both of my screens for documentation, troubleshooting, etc.?
