    I have (3) quick questions? (1) Is there a way to customize the pin so you can have it what ever you want? (2) Can you have the phone open in full screen every time you use the "Project to screen"? (3) How do I set it up so I can use my scroll pad from my laptop and my keyboard on my phone. The keyboard already seems to connect but not the scroll pad.


    Quick edit is there a way to project from laptop to secondary screen by HDMI?

    Hello Dawn,

    Q1) The PIN is randomly generated for security reasons. There is no way to specify a PIN.

    Q2) I haven't tested, but usually apps will open the same way last closed.

    Q3) You might test the Your Phone app to see if it may work better for this after linking the phone to your PC.
