    Your iMac's model and specs? The latest 5k retina one from 2014 does not support this feature.

    Very simple, please read Apple's advice letter on Target Display Mode. You can find it by clicking https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204592

    In that letter you will find which Macs are capable of TDM. If your machine is not on the list then there is no other viable method.
