    You do not need any additional software for that. Following command would send a message to PC named WindowsPC:

    msg /server:WindowsPC * “This message will be sent to WindowsPC and shown on its desktop.”

    Message on computer WindowsPC:

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	image.png 
Views:	45 
Size:	32.3 KB 
ID:	228402

    Message must be manually closed. If you want to, you can add time parameter to close message automatically in XX seconds. This command would close the message automatically after 45 seconds:

    msg /server:WindowsPC * /time:45 “This message will be sent to WindowsPC and shown on its desktop.”

    The built-in msg command can be used and messages sent from Command Prompt, PowerShell and Run prompt ( + R)



    As the next post by Try3 tells, msg is not available in Home edition. My apologies.

    Windows 10 Home x64 and Pro x86


    I get the response "'msg' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file." when trying this from a command window {whether using a normal or an elevated one}.
    - msg /? gets the same response.
    - There is no msg.exe file in my system32 folder.
    - Did you perhaps rescue yours from an older OS?

    Added a few minutes later - this discussion states that msg.exe is only on Windows 10 Pro -

    My apologies, I honestly did not know it is not included in Home edition. My post updated.
