I'm finding that I'm not as computer savvy as I used to be, so I'm just gonna ask.

Does Windows 10 have the ability to screen cast out to another device on the same network, either another Windows device, or an Android device?

The reason I'm asking is that we just got a new alignment machine, but it doesn't fit the shop well, and we can't put the cameras all the way to the top of the tree. That limits how high we can put vehicles during alignments, and so most cars we can't see the screen while adjusting the rear of the vehicle. The alignment computer just runs Windows 10, with the Hunter software running inside Windows as it's own program. The desktop and full array of Windows features are still readily accessible.

OK, my PC doesn't have a wireless NIC, but you get the idea.

My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
I think he wants to go the other direction. Seems like there should be a way. I'm nowhere near my computer right now. So I can't play with it.

I talked to our tech support guy. The computer in question is hardwired into the building LAN and per Hunter may not be connected to the WiFi, which is a different network, so what I wanted to do won't work anyway.
