Using laptop as second monitor

During a transition period I'm temporarily using my laptop as a second monitor wirelessly using the Windows 10 connect function. It works great, as an extension of my first monitor, but doesn't seem to work with DisplayFusion as a second display. What I mean is that the icon to change screens appears on the main display but not the laptop, selecting shortcuts to move a window from one screen to another, etc. Is this something that does not work at this time, or are there different settings required to make it function in this type of setup?

There was an issue with DisplayFusion not detecting wireless displays in 9.7, but it's fixed in the latest beta. Could you give it a try and let me know how it works out?

  • On the Settings > Options tab, enable the "Check for new Beta (newer, unstable) versions" option
  • Click the Apply button
  • Click the "Check for Updates" button

Thanks!

I tried this, and it seems to work fine. I haven't had time to fully test it out, so I can't say there are no glitches, but it does now recognize the laptop as a separate screen and has responded fine to all the commands I've tried. Thanks for the update!

I had to send back the motherboard on the new build, so I connected the second monitor back to my old desktop, but kept the laptop there and projected to it as well. Things seemed to work fine with all three monitors. Again, not a thorough test, but in general it seemed to work well.
