I have two computers one is a W7 Home Premium Laptop and a W7 Professional WorkStation.

I would like to tie a 22 in. Monitor 17 in. Laptop together for two people to use. In other words having two different mice using the two screens. Is it possible?

We have 3 grandchildren, nine, eight, and six  The nine year old has issues. Hopefully this may help.

 

Thank You

Greg

I guess you're looking for a multi-player arrangement like those used in Playstation or Xbox, etc.

 

As far as I know, you cannot do this....as the operating system is designed to allow one interface per user, at any one time. You would need another PC to run the 22in monitor.

Since I can not answer my own question. Found this after talking to a
computer company. A free download for personal, business tying computers
remotely.

We use Team Viewer here...but again, this only allows other user[s] to "remotely" control the same interface, and it's not as you would expect. There is only ever one cursor, or text field to control.
Plus, it would require another physical PC anyway....negating the advantage you're looking for.
