< All Topics

Windows 10 includes a feature known as “Project to this PC,” wherein you can use another Windows 10 PC or phone, an Android smartphone or tablet, or a Smart TV to mirror or extend your screen using Miracast. This is possible if you need a dual-monitor setup, but you don’t have a second monitor.

Turn your Windows 10 PC into a wireless display by following these steps:

  1. Open Action Center, which is located on the lower right corner of the screen.
  2. Select Connect from the options.
  3. Click Projecting to this PC.
  4. From the drop-down menu under Some Windows and Android devices can project to this PC when you say it’s OK section, select either Available everywhere or Available everywhere on secure networks.
  5. Under Ask to project to this PC, select First time only or Every time a connection is requested.

  6. Click Yes when Windows 10 alerts you that another device wants to project to your computer.

Your computer is now ready to connect wirelessly. 

How to cast your Windows 10 screen to another Windows 10 device

To broadcast your screen to another Windows 10 device, follow these steps:

  1. Open Action Center then select Connect. A list of available receiving devices will appear and your other PC should be on it.
  2. Select the receiving device then wait for the devices to pair. If the connection fails, you’ll need to try again.
  3. Click the checkbox beside Allow input from a keyboard or mouse connected to this display to turn it on. This will allow the receiving device to control your PC with its keyboard and mouse.
  4. If you want to use the wireless display as a second desktop rather than a mirror of your current desktop, click Change projection mode.
  5. Select Extend from the options.
  6. To terminate the connection, click Disconnect.
