Clone second screen into first screen

For presentations I extend the laptop screen to the beamer. So I can use presenter view in powerpoint. But when I want to show other programs on beamer screen I have to switch to clone mode or look backward on the beamer screen.

A better solution is to clone the second screen in a window on the first screen. The freeware MultiMonitor TaskBar has such a feature, but the framerate is to slow.

Therefore I write a solution based on the codeproject article Capturing the Desktop Screen with the Mouse Cursor Image.

Usage is very simple. When the mouse is on the first screen the program is minimized and has no effect. When the mouse enter the second screen, the program change to fullscreen in first screen and all actions on the beamer are visible in first screen.

Source Code with binaries can be downloaded under ScreenshotCaptureWithMouse. The program is portable, installation is not needed. The program is written in C# and tested with Windows 7 and Windows 8 with 32 and 64 bit. Net Framework 4.0 ore higher is needed.
