Using Hololens as a monitor

Hello, sorry if this is in the wrong category. I'm looking to use the Hololens as a virtual monitor only for my desktop. For example, I want to virtually display 2d programs that will run using the power of my desktop CPU. I have 9 monitors currently, and I want to see what it's like having virtual screens instead. Any help is appreciated.

    I tried this and failed, but in theory it will work to a degree. On Windows Server you can serve up applications using RDP, the using the Remote Desktop application for the HoloLens you should be able to access those applications. However, where I hit problems was in the certificates as I was generating my own rather than using a public signed one.

  • this is the only application that makes sense with AR (productivity wise)… should've been out of the box feature since Win10 can connect wirelessly to other displays
