Drag windows from one PC to the other?

I have a Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit laptop and a Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit desktop and I was curious if you could drag a window from my desktop to my laptop and control it on my laptop, and then drag it back. Is this even possible?

Drag a window?

can you control one from the other, sure. Use remote desktop or teamviewer.

Um there are no "windows" to drag. Do you by chance mean a folder, or files?


Let us know

Try Synergy if it works with Windows 7. I used it for years under XP and it was fantastic. Haven't used it for the last couple of years though since I no longer have the need.

Tried Synergy. I could probably get it to work, but I'm too lazy to play with the firewall and make the tweaks I need. I'm about to try ShareKMC. I'll post the results.

***EDIT***

ShareKMC Doesn't allow you to drag windows from one screen to the other, but it allows you to control the other computer with your other computer's keyboard and mouse. I'm going to try "reversing" the installation and see if it let's me control my desktop from my tablet.

***EDIT2***

Yes it does work.
