Remotely share my desktop with remote host

Hi,

I have a small PC mounted on a display on the wall.  This PC is running Windows 10.  I have a desktop that is running Windows 7 in the same room and on the same LAN.  I would like to remote onto the Windows 10 PC from the Windows 7 PC and share the Windows 7 desktop or window with the Windows 10 PC.  I've installed TightVNC and it works well but I don't see a "share my desktop" option on the client side.  I've installed TeamViewer and this is the closest option as it will allow me to share my desktop but it's on a small windows that doesn't expand.  I saw a program called TightProjector for $100 that might do it but it doesn't look like it supports Windows 10.  Does anyone have any experience or recommendations for this?  To recap.  I want to remotely display the client (Windows 7) desktop remotely onto the host (Windows 10) display.  Thanks!

I don't know what you mean by that, but I've never had an issue viewing a remote screen with TeamViewer. I always use the default, but perhaps you can achieve what you want with View>Scaling on the TV Toolbar:

TeamViewer View Scaling options
It's worth experimenting. Regards, Joe

Thanks for the tip Joe!  Team Viewer ultimately didn't do what I needed to do in this situation.  I had a friend recommend that I try Spacedesk as it sounded like exactly what I was looking for.  Spacedesk claim is: "Spacedesk expands the Windows desktop computer screen to other computers over the local area network."  I don't know if we can share URLs on Experts Exchange but I found it at spacedesk dot ph and it works great!

I'm glad to hear you found a solution. Yes, we're allowed to share URLs on EE. You may write them explicitly, such as:
http://spacedesk.ph/

Or use the Link icon on the toolbar to put the URL underneath text. Good luck with spacedesk! Regards, Joe

I was asking for a recommendation on software to expand my desktop to another computer on my network.  After several days of no recommendations, I found the software I was looking for.
