Open the Quick Settings panel by swiping down from the top of the screen using two fingers. Then swipe to and tap the Smart View icon.

 

Tap your TV from the list of Available devices. Depending on the TV, you may need to enter a PIN or allow access to complete the connection.

Trying to watch a movie on your PC can be straining. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could watch it on a big screen? You're in luck because Windows 10 offers the ability to mirror your PC on a TV.

 

Requirements

Before everyone can enjoy the shows, make sure your PC and TV have the right requirements. You will need:

A WiDi compatible PC: Most newer PCs that come with Windows 8 or Windows 10, support WiDi. The best to way find out if your PC is compatible is trying to mirror your screen. If your PC does not support WiDi, you always use a separate USB adapter.

Miracast/WiDi receiver on your TV: Make sure your TV has a Miracast or WiDi receiver. If not, you can always use an external adapter.

 

Mirror your screen

With all the right gear set, it’s time to mirror your screen. Once connected, anything you do on the PC will be mirrored on your TV.

On your PC, click Start, and then click Settings. Next, click Devices, and then click Bluetooth & other devices. Click Add Bluetooth or other device, and then click Wireless display or dock. Then, click your TV once its name is displayed If prompted, select Allow on your TV.

When the connection is complete, click Done on your PC. Now your PC screen will be mirrored to the TV.
