    How to Project to this PC from Windows 10 Mobile Phone

    information   Information
    The Projecting to this PC feature uses the Connect app to allow you to wirelessly connect a Windows Phone or PC to your PC's screen, and use its keyboard, mouse, and other devices too.

    Starting with Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14328, there is separate settings available for Projecting to this PC if your PC has Wi-Fi.

    Windows PCs and phones can project to your PC when you say it's OK.

    This tutorial will show you how to connect and project a Windows 10 Mobile phone to your wireless Windows 10 PC.

    Note   Note
    Your PC might have trouble displaying the content of the projected Windows 10 Mobile phone or Windows 10 PC if its hardware wasn't specifically optimized for Miracast.

    When trying to project to my PC from my 650 the PC reports my phone is trying to connect. It then fails with the message "Something went wrong try again." Something flashes on my 650 screen but disappears too fast for me to see what it is. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. ��

    Hello jmcgrath,

    Double check to make sure step 2 is set on your PC, and see if trying again may allow it to be successful this round.

    Hi Brink, I verified everything again but it still fails. The PC reports my phone "about to project". So they see each other. My phone momentarily flashes a screen that indicates they're connected but it immediately disappears. The PC reports then "something went wrong try again". Very strange. Could it be something with the WiFi settings somewhere?

    Hmm, I just tested on my laptop with build 16299, and it just fails to connect now.

    It'll be worth sending feedback on to help make sure the Microsoft team is aware of this issue.

    I've up voted somebody else's report about having the same problem with their 650. I also did a recreation capture and submitted it. Hopefully it will get their attention in time to fix it before they do a final release build of RS3. Thanks, Brink
