How to share the PC screen on the TV

The main requirement is to have a Smart TV or use a Fire TV or Google TV device to incorporate smart functions. The PC also needs to run Windows 10 or Windows 11 operating system. Both versions of Microsoft’s system include the wireless content technology.

Once you have both requirements fulfilled you have to connect the devices to the same Internet network. It doesn’t matter if one uses a wired connection or not. What you need to do is connect the device to the same router. That way, Windows will find the signal and send it between the PC and the Smart TV.

  1. Then you have to access Window settings with the keyboard shortcut Win + i.
  2. Access the Bluetooth and other devices section.
  3. Press the Add button and you should see your TV.
  4. Select it and follow the instructions to start watching your computer on the TV screen.

When your Smart TV and laptop are linked, you have to send it wirelessly to the TV. The fastest method is using the Project option. You can access it by pressing Win + P. You will see a window with 4 different options:

  • PC screen only.
  • Duplicate.
  • Extend.
  • Second screen only.

At the bottom of the list you will find More screen setting options. Click on it and you will find the name of your Smart TV or device and you can send the laptop image to play it there.
