If you’re using Miracast to project the screen of another device onto your Windows PC, you may be surprised to learn that as of the May 2020 update, the Connect app will no longer come standard with Windows 10. Fortunately, you can still download it from Microsoft. Here’s how.
First, open Settings. To do this quickly, click the “gear”
In ‘Settings’, click on ‘Apps’.
In ‘Apps and Features’, click on ‘Optional Features’.
In “Optional Features”, click “Add an Element,” which has a square plus (+) button next to it.
If the ‘Add an optional feature’ window appears, scroll down until you find ‘Wireless Display’. Place a check next to it and click ‘Install’.
The Wireless Display feature includes that Connect app that was once standard part of Windows 10.
Then you will return to the “Optional Features” screen and see a progress bar like “Wireless Display” downloads and installations. When it is done, it will say ‘Installed’.
The Connect app is now installed. To start and use the Connect app, open the Start menu, type “Connect” and select the Connect app from the list.
The Connect app will open and your Windows 10 PC is ready to receive an external video connection. Have fun projecting wirelessly!
