    Hi there,

    I would like to use a 2nd windows 10 laptop as extra monitor for my main windows 10 laptop. So as if it would be an external monitor that I plug into my main laptop to extend the laptop screen. Anyone knows any software that can do this?

    What I personally found:
    I currently use MouseWithoutBorders which atleast somewhat helps. I found Spacedesk ( https://www.spacedesk.net/ ) too but I am not sure if its safe (since you need to download their drivers too) and I heard its somewhat buggy.

    Thanks!

    Maybe approach it from a different angle.

    Get a streaming stick (I love my ScreenBeam Mini 2 Continuum Edition) and plug that into the spare laptop. Then on the main unit go to:

    Notifications and Actions > Project > Extend and then click the "Connect to a wireless display" link.

    With a streaming stick you will have a worthwhile tool that I'm sure will meet this need and also other use scenarios.

    RumoredNow, do you know if its possible to use windows 10 Project/Extend without using bluetooth on 1 device (/since its broke on my laptop)? (perhaps a network cable between the 2 win10 devices or preferable solely using wifi? Or perhaps does the streaming stick also bypass the need to use bluetooth?)
