    Use another PC as second display?


    I'm wondering if Windows 10 has the capability to extend the display to a 2nd pc? I have another Win10 PC on my desk and when it is idle, it would be nice to use its display for content on my main PC.
    Thanks

    Welcome to Ten Forums !
    Believe means of this would be from the video card, can you list the one you have make and model. Connect another display to video card, not connect one PC to another would be usually for transferring files, but not familiar with that processs.

    Thanks for the reply jds63!
    I'm thinking more along the lines of a software based 2nd monitor setup, having the 2nd monitor driven by a separate Win10 PC through the network. Of course I'm not expecting to play games or videos on the 2nd monitor, just to have a couple of windows open. I did some further research and found Synergy - Mouse and keyboard sharing software , I think I'll give that a try.

    Synergy project is great for multi platform, for connecting 2 windows pc's i would recommend Microsoft Garage Mouse without Borders.

    Joshy, thank you for pointing me to Mouse without borders, that program is nice! It's a bit different than what I was after but I should be able to work with it.
    Cheers,
