[KB1477] Does extended desktop work on Mac OS X? (FAQ)

Short Description

Extended desktop on Mac OS X


 The extended desktop functionality is not available on Mac OS X. Creating a virtual extended desktop (i.e. an extended desktop without a second physical monitor connected to the computer) is not supported in this Operating System.

Since it is not supported natively, this functionality would require the installation of a driver. The ClickShare client application completely relies on drivers already existing in the operating system, so the user does not need to install anything before using it. Therefore, installing a driver on Mac conflicts with our "ease of use" philosophy.
