Project my phone screen to a TV or PC

Want to see stuff from your Windows Phone 8.1—like video, family photos, or an app you've developed—on a bigger screen? It's simple to do if you have a TV, projector, or monitor with Miracast support. Or you can project to your Windows PC if you have the Project My Screen app and a USB cable.

Project to a TV or PC monitor

To project to your TV, monitor, or projector using a wireless connection

Be sure your phone's Wi-Fi is turned on, and then do the following:

  1. In the App list, tap Settings 

    Settings Icon
    > Project my screen.

  2. Tap the device you want to connect to. We'll automatically detect any nearby devices that can support a wireless display connection with your phone.

To project to your PC using a USB cable

  1. Install the Project My Screen app on your PC.

To fix projection issues after updating to Windows Phone 8.1

If you've recently updated to Windows Phone 8.1 and aren't able to project to a PC with the Project My Screen app and a USB cable, try uninstalling and reinstalling your phone drivers on your Windows PC.

  1. Connect your phone to your Windows PC using a USB cable.

  2. On your PC, go to Start and open Device Manager.

  3. Click Universal serial bus devices, right-click your Windows Phone, and then click Uninstall. Be sure to uninstall any Windows Phone devices that appear in this list. (You may need to restart your PC.)

  4. Disconnect your phone from your PC, and then reconnect it. We'll automatically reinstall the correct drivers.
