How to use an iMac as external Display for Thinkpad P51(4K Display)

Hi!

How can I use my iMac (Late 2013) as monitor for my Thinkpad P51(4K)?

I tried this setting that doesn't work:

- Apple USB-C to Thunderbolt Adapter on my Thinkpad

- Thunderbolt to Thunderbolt Cable to my iMac

 

Any ideas?

What you want is celled Target Display Mode (TDM) and is only supported on certain iMacs with the source computer being another Mac (Thunderbolt or DisplayPort).  It is not possible to use an iMac as a monitor for a Windows based PC.
