  1. PC-to-Laptop Projection Error


    I'm attempting to extend my PC screen to my laptop display using the Miracast feature, but I'm running into an issue. Seemingly at random, I will be able to successfully project my screen to the laptop without issue, but most of the time, my laptop display gets all "smeared" for lack of a better term see attached photo. I've updated my drivers, done restarts, adjusted display settings, etc. but nothing really seems to work and it only seems to work "when it feels like it". If anyone has any advice, I would greatly appreciate it!

    :)

    Need help projecting PC to laptop

    That seems a very old version of Connect. What version of Windows are you running on the laptop? Build 17763 suggests it is version 1809. What version are you running on the Desktop?


    You could try resetting Connect. Click on Start and type 'connect' then select 'App settings' from the list on the right.
