How to Mirror Android Phone to Laptop
One of the obvious difficulties of using your phone to show others your files is its small size. Being able to project your phone to your laptop gives you the ability to see your android device on a larger screen. And here we’ll show you several ways on how to mirror your android phone to a laptop.
If you have a Windows 10 laptop, chances are you already have the tools necessary to mirror your phone to your laptop’s screen. The Anniversary Upgrade for Windows 10 included an app that lets you cast your phone through a wireless connection to your laptop.
If your devices are paired but you can’t seem to mirror your screen, check if your Windows 10 settings allow you to project to your laptop. To do this, follow these steps:
Do note though that your laptop must be able to connect to other devices through Miracast for the app to work. There are several ways to check if your laptop supports Miracast, to do so:
If Windows Connect isn’t available on your version of Windows 10, or if you’re using an older version of the OS, then you may need to use a third-party app. There are several types of apps that you should pay attention to.
Wired Apps like Vysor will require that you connect your devices with a USB cable. This means you’ll have to enable USB debugging on your phone for any wired app to work. USB debugging is available by enabling it on the Developer options menu.
If you haven’t unlocked your Developers menu, you can do it by opening your phone’s Settings, scrolling down to your phone’s System Menu, and looking for the About Phone entry. Tapping on this about seven or so times will enable developer options. Your phone will warn you if you’re about to enable the setting.
Wireless Apps like Apowermirror connects your devices through your Wi-Fi network. Once both your phone and PC have installed these apps, all you need to do is ensure that the two devices are under the same network.
Mirroring allows you to use your laptop to display your phone’s screen to others. Your laptop in turn can be connected to projection devices to further increase the display. This useful feature certainly makes it easier to show multiple people files that wouldn’t have been inconvenient when using a smaller screen.
