In 2015, Microsoft launched Windows 10, a desktop mirroring application accessible over any Miracast-compatible dongle or device streaming box, TV.
Having Windows 10 installed on your laptop or desktop gives you the ability to connect your phone or tablet wirelessly to your PC, receiving Miracast signals from your smartphone or tablet.
It now makes sense to turn Windows 10 computers hooked up to your TV into wireless display dongles for smartphone and laptop use. Mirroring a Windows 10 computer allows you to extend the screen rather than merely duplicate it.
For example, when viewing the email on the primary display, you can watch an image while watching a video on your original show. On the road, just prop up your tablet next to your laptop to use as a second monitor.
Miracast can send a signal from most modern devices using Wi-Fi, but compatibility hits or miss at best. The casting of your screen can take between three and four attempts before it becomes successful. Consequently, patiently wait. We provide a quick fix for when you accidentally rotate your screen while extending.
Have you been looking for ways to mirror the screen in Windows 10? The following steps show you how to set up a Miracast-capable display with your Windows 10 computer:
You should also leave “Require PIN for pairing” since you must permit the receiving computer anyway. If you want your PC only to receive projection requests while connected, you can also adjust this setting.
If Windows 10 prompts you to accept a projection request from another device, press Yes.
A new window will open for the Windows Connect application. Organize your window by dragging, resizing, or maximizing it.
Our Surface Pro 4 and ThinkPad T440s connected smoothly and played videos smoothly. You can also use the keyboard and mouse on the receiving computer to control the scent device if the device is a Windows 10 PC.
