    This brings back memories of the "Red Green" Canadian TV show. It was hilarious, that guy could cobble anything together and usually with duct tape.

    Any tool can be the right tool. If the woman don't find you hansom, they should at least find you handy.

    Thanks guys. I found a really simple method that isn't really 100% perfect but works, at least for time being. This is for anyone that is wondering

    What I did was make a ghost monitor from my default laptop
    Set that monitor to extend the screen
    Install Teamviewer on both laptops
    Connect your 'second laptop' through teamviewer to your first one
    Change the desktop of the second laptop that is emulating the teamviewer to the second desktop screen.
    That should work now.
    Everything I just said I got from this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQBTn21214Q
