Linux and Windows PCs

On-the-fly display selection is a feature offered via Screen Sharing/Remote Management on macOS. You can, however, accomplish the same result with Windows and Linux computers by changing the port number in your saved “screen” settings. Choosing a particular port number selects a corresponding display.

Usually, port 5900 is used when Screens connects to your computer. If you have three displays, you may use ports 5901, 5902, or 5903 to specify Display 1, Display 2, or Display 3, respectively. Most VNC clients on Windows and Linux support this feature.
