        This feature could also be useful to "mute" monitors during a presentation? Currently all monitors of the host are always selectable. This is undesirable for this use case.

        The session has ended.
        Status: desk_rt_12

        How can solve the problem؟؟

        This was the #1 request for RAdmin as well and they were never able to implement it. As a mater of fact, look at all other remote desktop software and none of them are able to keep the remote screen locked except for Windows Remote Desktop. I wonder if there is something in the OS preventing this.

        \O/ Great, please add the custom message option too.

        Just a blank screen could allow someone to think the machine has crashed, then hard reboot

        Whereby a custom message can advise of the remote session in progress

        So if I get it right the idea is to be able to disable monitor 2 (to google something while the remote user won't see it)? That would be exactly what we are looking for.

        Hopefully work on this will be for all platforms and not just windows, right?

        I am waiting for this too. I can't switch from TW until this is in AnyDesk :(

        Similar to Teamviewer,
        Any Desk should offer the ability to download drivers to the remote machine to black-out the remote screen. Only having the ability to disable user input still allows others to view what you're clicking/doing on your remote machine.
        It's a pain to remember to have to turn off my monitors before I remote in using AnyDesk.
