    Hello @Xsunny,

    TeamViewer is designed to only capture what is on the remote screen and works ideally with a working monitor on the other end.

    This is why we recommend you use a working monitor when connecting via TeamViewer. If you want to hide your remote screen due to confidential operations, we recommend to use the Black screen feature. You will find how to use it here:

    📌Note: In some cases, TeamViewer can be used without a monitor. Please see here for more information.
