How to make surface pro become a 4th monitor while keeping the touch screen part working?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have a surface pro 6 and then my setup, I used to use my surface pro 6 for school but since it's been shutdown I dont use it as much. I have started to full speed get into blender due to not having any school or work (For the time being) and to learn more into this software to get better, I really want to learn sculpting but I dont have a drawing pad to make it easier but I do have a surface pen and a surface pro to use, is there anyway to use the full surface pro touch screen and pen on my main build by hooking up the surface to it? I would do seperate files and upload it to the cloud and keep using them but it does get a little choppy after MANY edits are made to a single object and would love to use the power of my main pc and use it on my surface.

I dont really think there is a way. because touch is though the pc's drivers that would require additional drivers on the main pc which i dont think you can. you could always just project to it
