AppleNApps This is a list of games which take full advantage of AirPlay Mirroring by offering special full screen 720P HD modes to show off the power of the A5 ship. There are other apps that work with AirPlay Mirroring which are not in this list, but they’re either poor apps overall, or it’s not a smooth translation. (last updated on 7th November 2011)

It is not possible. Apple explains well what happens when you mirror displays: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5019?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US "Your Mac will attempt to match the closest resolution between the primary (or built-in) and secondary displays. The usable resolution is the closest matching resolution for both primary and secondary display. ...

This script in an Automator Dictation command seems to work. Not the fullscreen will not work properly if run in Automator or Script editor. It picks up the previous window 1.

I'd like to do the same thing, but I haven't found a way. The best compromise I could come up with was to move the menu bar to my primary display. By moving the menu bar, I changed the display which shows my dock and desktop files. You can move the menu bar by dragging white bar in the Arrangement settings from one display to another:

The smallest rectangle containing both "real" monitors is your virtual desktop. The upper left corner of the monitor containing the menubar is the (0|0) coordinate. Moving rightwards and downwards increases the numbers. If you have one monitor (1920|1200) the upper left corner is the (0|0) and bottom right corner has the coordinate (1920|1200) and the ...

You can't physically connect the display of another MacBook (or any other laptop for that matter) to use it as an external monitor. However, there is an app called AirDisplay that will turn any display into an external monitor via WiFi (or wired network if you prefer).

I'll take my comment and make it into an answer; assuming I understand what you're looking for at least. Tested this code and it works fine for me. You'll need to adjust the numbers to indicate the relative position of your monitor. Assuming you don't move your screens around, it's a one-time entry. Credit to this answer on SO which also provides a link to ...

You are probably best served by this app here: https://github.com/duanefields/VirtualKVM Download here: https://github.com/duanefields/VirtualKVM/releases Basically "Automatically toggles Bluetooth and Target Display Mode when you connect a Macbook to your iMac via Thunderbolt."

Unfortunately, Target Display Mode doesn't work on MacBook Pros. However, this thread here describes various ways to use the MacBook Pro as a screen. In a nutshell, it says to use a third party app such as Air Display or Screen Recycler (both of which, it appears, operate over a network. The thread suggests connecting the two computers with a thunderbolt ...

More to add to what klanomath said than to attempt to provide another almost identical answer...

So far there are no USB-C docks that provide the "correct" amount of power for the MacBook Pro's, so far that I've seen. The Kensington SD4600P USB-C Docking Station provides just under the required power for a 13" MBPR and not even close to what the 15" needs. Depending on what you need, you could use the Apple USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter. That ...

You can do that with for example a Thunderbolt 3 dock (or Thunderbolt 2 dock if you have an older one). Models from Belkin, OWC, etc. allow you to plugin the two monitors, your USB device, charger and audio into the dock and only have a single cable going into the new MacBook Pro.

So for anyone that might have this issue, in my case it was as simple as rebooting into safe mode. I held down the shift key after the startup sound, released it when I saw the apple icon. After it successfully rebooted into safe mode I simply did a normal restart. I suppose this cleared out system caches and the windows stay put now after I wake up the ...

If I understand your configuration, you have: a. macbook, plus two external displays b. two thunderbolt ports, one for ethernet, one for display c. one hdmi port for the other display For the VGA display, you need a Mini DisplayPort-to-VGA adapter.

No, as the second monitor is an extension of your desktop. An empty extension. The mirroring would obviously give you the same desktop items on both monitors, but without the extra screen estate that you wish for. By desktop items, I assume you mean the dock and the file icons on the actual desktop. You seem to want a hybrid of both modes, and ...
