TECHNICAL FIELD

[0002] The present disclosure relates to methods and apparatuses for processing a screen linked between devices.

BACKGROUND

[0003] In general, mobile devices are computer devices that are small-sized enough to be fit in a pocket and include a display screen having a touch input function or a small-sized keyboard. However, the screen of such a mobile device is often smaller than the sizes of contents provided thereto, and thus a window should be additionally displayed or screen scrolling should be performed. Head-mounted display (HMD) devices should be understood as various image display devices designed for users to view a virtual image while wearing the HMD devices on their heads like eyeglasses. The HMD devices are capable of providing users with not only a simple display function but also with various convenient functions which are combinations of a display function with augmented reality technology, N-screen technology, etc. However, a user of an HMD device should indirectly attempt to control a virtual image displayed on glasses of the HMD device, for example, by making a gesture toward the virtual image, making a voice input, or touching the arms of the eyeglasses without physically touching the virtual image. Thus, the virtual image is difficult to be precisely controlled.
