    Hello.
    I have the mac mini adapter that allows you to plug into a VGA monitor. I noticed my windows laptop has this same plug in on the side of it. So I Ihave the VGA cable going from the Mac into my windows laptop now (instead of my viewsonic monitor)... is there a way to view my mac mini desktop using my windows laptop screen instead of a separate monitor? (and instead of using 3rd party programs like VNC etc)

    Just because the windows laptop has a vga port doesn't mean it can accept INPUT from vga. Most likely it's an output port so it won't work as input.
