    Default Docking my HTC one to my PC and controlling it with my mouse

    Hello,

    So I have been looking around quite a bit and I havent really seen any answers for this. Is it possible to get like a dock or something that I could plug my phone in to and have a virtual screen on my desktop that I can control with my mouse? Kind of like teamviewer but instead of controlling the PC through the phone I would be controlling the phone through the PC. Is this at all possible?

    Thanks!!!

    Hello!

    It looks like you want to use something along the lines of this: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...lite.vncserver

    That will let you open a browser on the PC and control the device. If you take a look through the listed "similar" apps on that page, there may be something that more specifically suites your needs. Also, if there is a specific function you are trying to achieve, i.e send/receive text messages from the PC, then let us know and we'll try and help further.

    Thanks for your reply!

    What I would really like to do is just send and receive texts. I see my co workers doing it with their iphones and macs but idk how I would be able to do it with my android and PC. So that is the real goal of getting my phone and PC to work together.

    EDIT:

    Also the ability to see notifications would be awesome!

    Welcome to the forums!

    Take a look at Push Bullet, it may be what you are looking for: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...bullet.android
