mirror driver

A mirror driver is a Windows device driver used in extended desktops, remote desktop software and assistive technology.

Technically, the driver extends drawing operations to additional physical display devices by polling for screen changes and sending updates.

In Windows 8 or later operating systems, developers must use a graphical device interface (GDI) driver to provide mirror driver capabilities. The graphics device interface is an API that interacts with device drivers on behalf of applications.
