Strange Result when using "Print Screen" Key

I just noticed today that if I use the Print Screen key while running the Oculus Desktop App, and then paste it into my Paint program, the result is very strange.
It splits the image into 2 parts. The whole screen is displayed at my monitor resolution in the upper left corner, and the Desktop background image is shown separately at 4x the resolution in the bottom right. Sounds weird, but here it is.............



Anybody else seeing this?
I don't know if it's always been like this.

    Yes, the screen shot is smaller than what you see in the Rift.  I think if you use the real keyboard print screen you'll do better

    The second large part is a virtual monitor created in the background. This is how Dash displays desktop windows in VR, any window you see in Dash will appear in that virtual monitor area.

    That IS the real keyboard print screen.
    The Rift has 1080 x 1200 per eye, the background pic in the screen shot above is 3840 x 2160 (way bigger than Rift).

    Okay, thanks @kojack
    That makes sense now. It was just completely unexpected.
