I have a Microsoft Surface 3 (not pro) with the Surface Pen stylus. I am wondering if I can use my Surface as an external drawing tablet (input device) for my desktop computer (running win 8.1 pro). This will entail the Surface sending mouse location, click, and pressure to the desktop; ideally with the desktop duplicating the screen to the surface as well (though not absolutely necessary).
I asked a guy a the local Best Buy and he said all I needed to do was get a USB to HDMI cable and plug the USB into the Surface and the HDMI into the desktop. After a bit of research online I have found several other people trying to do what I am trying to do, but no relevant answers, let alone anything having to do with a USB/HDMI cable.
Though I am not sure this is relevant, I did find one person that claimed that the Surfaces use Wacom technology.
So is this possible? And if so how do I do it?
