Noob here. I've had a Pi 1 and a Pi 2 which I basically just powered up and never did anything with because I didn't have an application in mind. Now I have an application, and a Pi 4, and I'm thinking more seriously about the mechanics of developing a Pi application.
I can hook up a separate monitor/keyboard/mouse, but that takes up a lot of space on my desk. I'd anticipated this with the previous Pis and tracked down an Atrix Lapdock (for my purposes, a nearly ideal solution) to address it, but I've never been able to get the Atrix to work with a Pi. Another solution would be to use my Windows 10 desktop's monitor/keyboard/mouse, and there seem to be several ways of doing this. Is there any one way that's considered best? Thanks for any tips and pointers to guides/tutorials.
