I am wondering if it's possible to use a remote windows machine as an additional monitor for another Windows Machine.

The reason I ask is rather simple, I have a Windows 7 Tablet, and at times would like to be able to optimize my work area with my laptop by using the tablet as extra display area. I know it's possible for Android and iOS, but is it at all possible for Windows 7? Even without the touchscreen capability, the extra display area would help immeasurably..

you can do this using VNC, its as easy as starting a VNC and then running the VNC window full screen on the other comp.

I should rephrase - I want to extend my display onto my tablet, Identically to how dual monitors work, not simply clone the display on the tablet - Is this possible with VNC?

I realize how my earlier explanation could be confusing.

There is software for this for other devices, with no hardware required.

However, it has Windows -> EVERYTHING (Except Windows), I was more wondering if anyone here knew of any similar software, I would have posted the site earlier, but I just found this particular one most recently...
