Extend your PC screen to your Galaxy tablet

PC and Tablet S7 screen mirroring

Do you ever wish you could extend your PC's screen to another device besides a TV or monitor? Well, you can! Samsung tablets with One UI 3.1 or later have that capability! As long as your PC has Windows 10 or later, you can mirror its screen to a Galaxy tablet. You can even control your computer from the tablet's screen.

Note: This feature is only on the Galaxy Tab S7, S8, and S9 running One UI 3.1 and later, and select PCs with Wireless Display running the latest version of Windows 10 (v.2004 and higher).

Set up and use Second screen

Note: For the best results, make sure the two devices are close to each other and are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.

Maybe you need to show your coworker how to do something online. Instead of crowding around your computer, you can mirror your computer's screen to a Galaxy tablet and let your coworker watch from the tablet. They can also control your computer from the tablet if they want to demonstrate what they learned.

  1. On your tablet, swipe down from the top of the screen to open the Quick settings panel. 

  2. Swipe to the left, and then tap the Second screen icon.

  3. Choose your desired connection mode: Drawing/gaming or Video.

  6. Select your tablet from the list of available devices. Your tablet will remain visible to your computer as long as you keep the Second screen page opened.

  9. You can now right-click the desktop and select Display settings. Click the dropdown to select between Duplicate these displays and Extend these displaysWith an extended display you can click and drag the monitors to rearrange them so that moving your pointer to another display is as easy as moving it to the correct side of the screen. By default, the tablet screen will be labeled 2, but if you have more monitors connected select Identify to see how they are numbered. When you select Apply the changes will be made.


  10. A toolbar will appear at the top of both the computer’s and the tablet’s screen. Select the thumbtack icon to pin or unpin this toolbar. When it’s unpinned, hover the mouse near the top of the page to have the toolbar appear again.
