    I have tried all morning to connect my two laptops together with no success. I have an HP ( Operates on Windows 10) and I have a dell. I am just needing a second monitor so that I can operate on both computers without switching back and forth.

    Video ports on laptops are usually "video out" only.

    If you need a 2nd monitor, you connect a laptop to a tv or a computer monitor, not to another laptop.
