    I want to connect a Windows laptop to a chromebook with the chromebook as the secondary machine. I plan to make a USB A male to USB A male cable using the A ends of 2 A-B cables. I’ve successfully used wifi to connect, and it works, but is a bit laggy.

    Am I right in thinking that I should NOT connect the red wire, otherwise the two machines will each be trying to power the connection, and one may damage the other? Or do I connect all 4 of the wires?

    Hi @malkie,

    Native USB cable connection between Windows PC and Chromebook is not supported in spacedesk.

    You can try USB tethering connection (if possible) or Mobile Hotspot/WiFi Direct connection.
    For further assistance, please check the Performance tuning chapter in the user manual.


    Thanks for the reply, Lea.

    Not what I was hoping for, obviously 🙁

    Is there a possibility that it might be supported in the future, or does the clash of power connections rule that out?
