iPad Air as a screen on Win 10 Laptop - Is this possible?

I have the following laptop (https://www.dell.com/en-ca/work/shop/la ... 490-laptop) and the iPad Air (https://www.apple.com/ca/ipad-air/) and wanted to connect some cable to make the iPad as another monitor.

What would I need to do this? I already am using the HDMI connection and one USB connection to connect to 2 additional monitors. Would I be able to setup a third monitor?

Thanks

Thanks for the link. Unfortunately, this won't work for me in that my system is locked down and I can't install software. I am able to connect a monitor natively which is why I was looking at a cable alternative.

You're not going to be able to do this without installing some sort of software on your PC.

I use the duet app and works fairly well. It’s not as sharp as a regular monitor. I’ve been using my iPad screen to review my Outlook and laptop screen for everything else.

I think this is on sale for $13.99 now.

So if we are using outlook on a browser we can use it on our iPad? How about windows command line? Etc. ?

I use an app called Spacedesk, it works for android/windows/ios/etc... I found it to be much better than competing apps and it is free.
