Using Thunderbolt ports I want to connect my iMac late 2012 to my new 2018 Mac Can I use this Thunderbolt 2 cable to connect my 2012 Mac (I have the adaptor that will bridge the connection between the 2012 Thunderbolt 2 port to the 2018 Thunderbolt 3 port.
I just need to know if this cable will connect to my Late 2012 Mac Thunderbolt 2 port. I am hoping to use 1 Mac as a Second monitor, an extended desktop

    It will, but you will need an adapter to connect the other end of the cable to your new Mac’s Thunderbolt 3 port.
    However, that is only for data transfer. I’d assume you’re trying to use the DisplayPort connection to use Target Display with your second iMac. You’d need a third-party USB-C to Mini DisplayPort adapter for that.
