Using an Envy all in one PC as a second monitor for an iMac

Product Name: HP Envey
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have an HP Envy 27inch all in one PC and I would like to use it as a second monitor for my iMac occationally (mainly for Lightroom running on the Mac).


I have a Miniport (iMac) to HDMI cable (for Envy) and have conected them both up and pressed the screen toggle on the underneath of the Envy's monitor.  The iMac does not find the monitor (or the other way around).


On the iMac, no second screen option is showing on the dispay tab of "Preferences" so the iMac is not aware of the connection.


According to the Apple pages, once you have plugged in the Envy and toggle the screen, the iMac should find it.


I have plugged in my Microsoft Surface 3 (USB 3 to HDMI cable) into the Envey, hit toggle and it works straight away, so this might be an Apple problem of course.


Any ideas anyone?
