Step 2 – Go to Phone Settings
Now, go to your phone’s settings menu. You can do this in a variety of ways. Tap on the Gear icon from your Home Screen. Or swipe down from the top of your screen and select “Settings” from your Quick Menu.
Step 3 – Go to Wireless Display
Next, from your main settings menu, tap on more options. In the next screen, select Wireless Display. For some phones, it may be called Wireless Devices. Toggle the switch to ON.
