How can I use my Android Tablet as a secondary display?



You can do this if you have an Android 3.0 and above, a PC/ laptop that is running Windows XP or 7 and a common network to connect to.

Next thing to do is download an application that lets you do this capability. The most cost-friendly is the Redfly Screenslider at $1. There’s also Air Display and i Display which cost a bit higher.

Download your preferred app from Google Play.

You will also have to download the companion app to your PC.

Considering your devices are now connected to both networks, the companion app from the PC should start locating the tablet. Look for the option that allows you to do that.

Upon selecting your tablet from your PC, there should be a PIN that will appear which you will have to key in through the same app in your tablet.

Once this is successfully done, you can now use your tablet as a second PC.

Good Luck!
