Is there anyway I can share my monitor screen to another monitor without any application/process running on my computer and only by using hardware/cables ,etc. I do not want to have 2 monitors connected either since it would show on the Screen Resolution in Win 7. Unless there is a way to hide that so it only shows 1 monitor. And I mean hide it without using any software....

  • Why does it matter what the OS is, when you insist on a hardware-only solution?

Sure - depending on what type of cable/monitors you're using, splitters can be easily purchased. Some are active, some passive, depending on protocol and feature set.

  • Thank you. But wouldnt a spliter like google.com/shopping/product/… would show up on the "Screen Resolution" in windows 7 as additional monitor? Sep 17, 2014 at 2:36
  • No it would not.
