Important Tips

You’ll likely see a message saying “This device might have trouble displaying your content because its hardware wasn’t specifically designed for wireless projection” on your PC. The Connect app or miracast on your Windows 10 computer will still work. I have managed to mirror different Android mobile phones to my Windows 10 PC configured as mentioned above although it said my PC wasn’t specifically designed for wireless projection.
