How would I go about sharing one particular window, in this instance internet explorer, to another device?

Something like teamviewer but without the interruption to the host system. I still want to be able to use my pc while sharing a single window.

The purpose is so my partner can play flash games on her ipad or galaxy note. I've tried installing dolphin and Java etc but doesn't seem work with games.

Is there a lightweight software that can run teamviewer and IE In a sandbox or the likes?

Many thanks for your advice.

Teamviewer can share individual windows.

Teamviewer will put a little icon on the top right of your windows (you can disable it too) and clicking on that little icon will allow you to share just that window

Will that interrupt my mouse/keyboard or be separate?

I believe that won't interrupt your input, but you can try it for yourself.

For the life of me I can not find where the option is? I've Googled previously and removed the software because I couldn't find it. Installed it again, but I can not see this option any where?

 

Thanks for your assistance.

What version of Teamviewer did you install ?  There is the full pkg, quick connect, and a couple of others.

TeamViewer full version - Windows.

 

Can't click anything in meeting mode it appears, only raise a 'pointer' to show the host something.

Wouldn't it be easier, simpler and faster to just use an ipad app that lets you play flash games..  There is a chrome browser "virtual browser" that allows this off the top of my head - there is prob quite a few options to choose from.

I would have to assume same sort of thing for the android side.

I have looked at similar ones for Android, but they just operate on a virtual machine or similar I would guess. Remote, not local. Prefer not to spend the money and I could run VirtualBox and do it myself, but it seems like a pain just to run a game. Seems might not have much choice I guess.
