I have two screens. The 2nd is not facing me. I occasionally want to check if it looks correct. How do I get my screen (monitor 1) to show me what monitor 2 looks like briefly? This should not make monitor 2 show the contents of monitor 1.
You should be able to use to snipping tool included in Windows 7 to generate a full screen screen-shot of your entire desktop. This should allow you to see what your desktop on the other monitor currently looks like.
