This dude is ungessable

My laptop screen ended up breaking. I've tried both Google remote desktop and Steamlink, but apparently, Windows 11 really bugs out if you don't have a connected monitor. This solves that issue and performs better. Once I had gotten it set up, it had worked as a screen replacement nearly flawlessly. Even the client on Windows works so well that you could probably forget you're controlling a different pc.

This app works great. I use it with a 10" Fire tablet. But, I've noticed with version 0.9.80 of the app and 1.0.18 on the PC, that when the screens have turned themselves off after I have been away, the 'Connected-Display OFF' message on the tablet is stationary in the center of the screen, instead of bouncing around randomly like it did before the update. I don't know what the chance of burn-in is, but I don't think I want to find out.

This app is great! You can even add more than one SpaceDesk display at a time. It also works with Chromebooks but set your bar at the bottom of your Chromebook to auto-hide for full resolution and to maintain the correct aspect ratio (no distortion). You may need to change resolution of the display after you connect but you should see the native resolution as an option. Performance seems very good but I haven't tried video playback with it. It even supports touch screens.
