    show desktop screen on laptop wireless


    Ok here goes I have a windows 10 pro desktop but originally windows 7 so there's no miracast thing. So I'm trying to share it with my windows 8.1 laptop. Wireless.

    I don't want to connect through wifi since its not my internet I'm actually using. So I want to try it a different way. Like through bluetooth if possible. Plus there is no vga on my laptop only hdmi. And the cord is only 4 foot long.

    I want to be able to use my laptop screen to change file names and such. Because I have already gone as big as I think I can with the text for the windows 10 desktop pc I'm also running it on a 32 inch tv.

    So I have went to personalize and took it to 125% and can't go any bigger. And I don't want to sit in front of the tv to see the writing. So I thought about sharing the screens wireless. Please help me figure something out.

    If the TV has a USB port (and is a so-called SMART TV), MS makes a USB dongle called the Wireless Display Adapter that's designed to do this very thing. It does, however, use WiFi -- but the traffic will be local only, and shouldn't affect Internet access (though it would have an impact on local WiFi traffic on the same and adjacent WiFi channels). This works quite well and I know this because I've got one. OTOH, there are Bluetooth TV connectors available -- here's one on Amazon -- but I've never used them and can't say anything more than "They exist, don't cost too much, and may be worth trying out." YMMV.

    HTH,
