use of dual monitors on both computers

In an article "Multi-Monitor Support for Windows", there is a comment: "If you have the same number of monitors or more than your client, it is also possible to mirror them one-to-one onto your own monitors." I would love to do that. (See the 2 monitors from the other computer showing up on my 2 monitors.) What do I have to do to accomplish that? Thanks for your help!

Re: use of dual monitors on both computers

This is what works for me.

If you click on View in the toolbar, you should have the options below.
1) Check the box "Monitors as Individual Windows"
2) Click the monitor icon with the "2". The second screen should pop up in a second window.
You can then drag that second window to your other screen and maximize both windows.

Re: use of dual monitors on both computers

this is such a fantastic feature, I love using it.  However, does anyone know how to fool the system?  Specifically, I have 2 monitors, but the workstation I am using TV to remote to has only 1.  Is it possible to work as if the remote PC has 2 monitors?

I can have 2 instances of the same view, and I can stretch the TeamViewer across my to monitors, but this is not the result I am hoping for.  I'd like to work as if the remote workstation has 2 monitors, even if it does not.  Possible ??

Re: use of dual monitors on both computers

Search Amazon for "HDMI EDID Emulator" or "DP EDID Emulator", some refer to it as a ghost display. I just used 2 of the HDMI ones on an Intel NUC that is running headless, letting me have dual screens on TV. It's just a little plug that has an EDID chip in it to fool the graphics card into thinking a monitor is connected. They go for about $10/ea. Install it on the remote PC.
