How to Cast Your Samsung Phone Display to a Windows 10 PC

Sometime while I watch camera recorded  video on my Samsung phone, I often think does there any way where I can see my captured video on my windows PC without transferring it. I went to Google for find its solution but I did not get any good result for Samsung phone and its devices.  Most of the article describe about stock version of Android cast to Windows PC. I thought it would be nice to write an article which will help my reader  who are using Samsung phone and wants to cast video, images or game to Windows PC.

Here I will write down easy step by step guide. You can follow accordingly.

Step 1: Open your Windows settings by ⊞ (windows) + I -> System -> Projecting to this PC

Step 2: Select “Available Everywhere” or “Available everywhere on secure networks” from the top pull down menu.

Select your desired option from pull down menu
I selected available everywhere option

Step 3: Select “First time only” or “Every time” under Ask to project to this PC. I would recommend picking “first time only,” unless you are really worried about your security.

You can leave as it is for “Require PIN for pairing” option off since you have to grant permission anyway. You can also decide whether you want your PC to receive projection requests only when it’s plugged in.

Step 4:  If you are accessing internet via wifi then disconnect it from your mobile phone as well as from your computer. On your Samsung phone select “smart view” from pull down menu.
