Use the Second screen feature to extend your PC to your Galaxy tablet
Do you ever wish you could extend your PC's screen to another device besides a TV or monitor? With the One UI 3.1 update, your tablet has that capability! As long as your laptop or computer has Windows 10, 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 Galaxy tablets running One UI 3.1 and later, and PCs running the latest version of Windows 10.
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.
On your tablet, swipe down from the top of the screen to open the Quick settings panel.
Swipe to the left, and then tap the Second screen icon.
Choose your desired connection mode: Drawing/gaming or Video.
Once you’ve chosen the connection method, do not leave the Second screen page; it needs to be open to connect your two devices.
Next, log on to your Windows 10 computer, and press the Windows key and K key simultaneously.
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.
If desired, select the check next to “Allow mouse, keyboard, touch, and pen input from this device.”
Your computer’s screen will appear on your tablet’s screen. You can use your computer’s mouse or your tablet’s touch screen to navigate your computer’s interface.
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.
When you are finished, select Disconnect to end the connection. You can also press the Windows key and K on your computer, and then select Disconnect next to your tablet’s name.
