Lightroom: Can I dim just one (of two) monitors with the L command?

I have two monitors and use the L command (on a PC) to send the entire non-image area darker to aid viewing the image in Lightroom.

However I have two monitors and often have the second one set to display some non-Lightroom application, but the L command dims both monitors together.

Is it possible to only dim my main monitor that is showing the Lightroom software and not the second monitor too?

Thanks

No, that's not possible, sorry Edward. This is not quite what you're asking for but this may help a little - try right clicking on the grey area surrounding the photo on and change the preview background colour to a darker colour. That wouldn't hide the panels, so you'd need to shift-tab to do that.
