    Hello,
    I have downloaded spacedesk on my Windows laptop, and am trying to use my macbook as a second screen, using the spacedesk html5 viewer. I am able to connect, but the macbook just mirrors my windows laptop, rather than acting as a second screen. Is this because of my macbook settings? Is it possible to have the macbook as a second screen, so I can drag applications from one screen to the other? Thank you!

    Hi @louisa,

    You can easily switch the spacedesk display to Extension mode via Windows Display Settings or via Display Switch (Windows logo + P hotkey).
    For assistance, please read the Configuration and Settings -> Windows PC (Primary Machine) chapter in the user manual.

    Hi @sabine2022,
    You can use the spacedesk HTML5 Viewer on your iMac.
    Just open a web browser then go to http://viewer.spacedesk.net/ and connect to the IP address of your primary machine (Windows laptop).
