How to Project an Android to a PC / Laptop Screen with Windows 10

How to Project an Android to a PC / Laptop Screen with Windows 10. In the past to display the Android screen on a PC is a bit complicated. Android phones must be connected with a cable to the PC in "USB debugging" mode. And you need additional applications to display the screen on a PC. Some of them are DDMS tools on Android SDK, droid @ screen, BBq droid screen, vysor and so on.

Windows 10, which is the latest operating system from the Microsoft company, turned out to have the "Projecting to this PC" feature. With this feature you can display the Android screen that has the feature "Wireless Display" to be displayed on the Windows 10 desktop. So for those of you who have the Windows 10 operating system do not need to be complicated anymore to display the screen of your android phone to a PC. At a minimum your phone supports wireless display, the "Projecting to this PC" feature is ready to use.

For those who do not know how to use the "Projecting to this PC" feature, the following steps will be explained in detail.

HP connection to PC

There are 2 methods to be able to do "Projecting to this PC" the first is to connect your PC and android device to the same wifi source, or the second connect a PC with wifi hotspot from an android device. Here are the general steps to do wifi hotspots from Android phones. Open settings -> Tethering and Mobile Hotspot.

Make sure your HP and PC are perfectly connected, either through Wifi Tethering or connected to the same wifi network. If you can follow the next process below.

Enable "Projecting to this PC"

If both PC or android devices are connected to each other via a wifi network, then you can activate the "Projecting to PC" feature in the Windows 10 operating system. See the lower right panel, click on the message / notification icon. Then select "Connect".

Then select "Projecting to this PC". Then a new window will appear as follows:

Then change "Always off" to "Available everywhere" or "Available everywhere on secure networks". Then in the "Ask to project to this PC" section, leave it default. The identification name for a wireless connection is to use the PC name. In this example the name is "User"

From the PC / Computer side, Projecting to this PC activation is complete, then the wireless display is on your Android device. In this example I use the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 to try to display images to a PC.

Wireless Screen Activation on Android Devices

Before proceeding to this step, make sure your android device really supports Wireless Screen. Usually in the settings menu there is the "Screen Mirroring" or "Wireless Display" option. In this example the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 menu is "Screen Mirroring.

Then just click on the "Available devices", in this example, the name of the wireless screen is "User", after that from the PC side, a "Connect" notification will appear as follows:

Select yes, then your Android screen will automatically appear on the Windows 10 Desktop, here is how it looks. Display can not be set, to be able to full screen simply set to maximize / fullscreen. For sound to appear on the side of the desktop PC.

Then if you try to control the screen with the mouse a notification will appear as follows, which reads "Touch input is turned off. To turn it on, go back to your PC, and select action center> Connect> the check box".
This feature seems not yet available, because there is no check box option. This feature, if active, will be like the remote feature of an Android device from a PC. However, because this is displaying the screen to a PC, the PC is considered like a TV screen. So enjoy the look of the android on the desktop PC screen, then you can do other things like recording an android screen, taking image capture, and so on.
Ok, I guess that's all for a tutorial on how to project Android to a PC / Laptop screen with Windows 10.

Hopefully useful.
