I am doing some development on my MacBook and I would like to use my desktop to access it remotely as I have a dual monitor setup. Is there a way to do this? My desktop is Windows and my Mac is a 2015 Retina MacBook Pro.


Download RealVNC Viewer for Windows and move it to the applications folder.

In the macOS open System Preferences > Sharing and enable "Screen Sharing" for either All users or restrict it to your user.

Open RealVNC Viewer and enter the IP or the host name of the Mac and hit the enter key.

  • Does RealVNC allow for multi monitor output through rdp? Or do I have to get a cable? – SomethingsGottaGive Mar 13 '17 at 22:30

Another option is TeamViewer. You can setup TeamViewer with "unattended access". Be sure to use a really good password, but this should do the trick for you. You can read more about it here: https://www-rc.teamviewer.com/en/use-cases/remote-access/
