    HI.

    I don't know if this is the best place to post this, but I have a question.
    Can I use my Surface 2 RT tablet as a second screen to use with my windows pc? And if so, can it be done by Wifi or to I have to use a cable?

    I know you can connect a monitor to the tablet and use that, but I want the tablet to be the second screen and receive the image from my desktop.

    Greetings.

    Can you also use it in portrait mode?

    Probably, as this happens inside and "app". haven't tried this out, but Sean shows how this is done in the video. My guess is that you just turn your device to portrait mode, and it works.

    Tried it out, but it won't work. I can only get an mirrored desktop on my surface. Tried many things, also those showed in the video, but I can't get my pc to extend my desktop on my surface 2 RT.
    Also when I connect my surface to my pc, my resolution changes.
    Would like to get this working, but at the moment I don't know how... pls help?
