It's maybe old news, but I'm trying it out for the first time. Using Window 10's connect/extend onto another computer's display wirelessly. Works pretty well to extend my primary laptop screen onto my netbook screen, and the resolution can be non-native, so it could be 4k, if I wanted to, with some scaling artifacts of course, but it's all wireless, so don't have to go through the internet or anything.

I use splashtop wired display. Not bad with usb3. Win 10 cast to tv is like miracast.
But I havent tried the win 10 cast to another laptop. How do you set up the laptop receiver?

Just go to project on the notification panel and "Project," then "Connect to a wireless display" and there will be an option for "projecting to this PC", or I think it's in settings under System/Projecting to this PC.
