    Surface as peripheral of a desktop?


    I've been to many Zoom sessions where a speaker (on a desktop) shares her screen and writes on a connected iPad. Is it possible to do this with a Windows Surface? I know how to connect a Surface to act as a second monitor (or desktop monitor is bigger monitor for a Surface), but that is not what I really want.

    Thanks!

    You can do this using MS OneNote. Run it on both computers and anything you write or draw will be seen on both (or more) computers in real time. Download OneNote

    There are other apps out there that will do the same thing.

    Thank you for your suggestion. In order for this to work (OneNote or other apps), do you still need to connect the Surface to the desktop? If yes, via USB? How is this working otherwise?

    Connect both to the network. You could actually have people in other parts of the world connected to the OneNote session and all would see the changes in real time.
