Fix connections to other PCs via Bluetooth

If pressing the Connect button in action center doesn't find the PC you're trying to connect to, try the following:

  • Make sure your Windows device supports Miracast by checking the info that came with it or by going to the manufacturer's website.

  • Make sure the PC you want to project to supports Miracast, is turned on, and is plugged in. To check if it supports Miracast, open the Connect app. Here's how: Go to Start , enter (type) Connect, and then select Connect from the list of results. The app will let you know if it doesn't.

  • Make sure Wi-Fi is turned on.

  • On the PC you're trying to project to, go to Settings  > System > Projecting to this PC and make sure it's set up to be discovered.

  • If you tried all of these and nothing worked, try restarting your PC.
