How to screen mirror Galaxy phone and use Android apps with Link to Windows



Screen mirroring or screen casting allows you to mirror your Samsung device’s content to your PC screen. This feature has changed a lot in technology in recent times and will change the best way to reflect your screen depending on the age, model, and manufacturer of your smartphone, tablet, PC, and TV.

Many apps like Netflix and YouTube now Galaxy phones have a built-in screen mirroring function. If you are using a casting device such as Chromecast, you will need to connect your account with the casting app to mirror that app.

Even if you’re a multitasking expert, navigating both your phone and computer at the same time can be really tricky. You can streamline the process by screen mirroring your Galaxy phone’s screen to your Windows 10 PC. That way, you can control both devices from the same place.

Display your phone screen on your computer

If your phone needs to charge for a while, access it on your PC using screen mirroring. Just make sure the Link to the Windows feature is set up, and your phone and PC are connected to the same network or via mobile data.

  • Open the Your Phone app on the connected PC, and then select the Phone Screen tab.
  • From here, navigate through apps, change settings, and drag and drop files from your PC to your phone.
  • Your phone’s battery status will be displayed at the top of the screen, too.

When screen mirroring, your phone’s screen will be blank.

Note: The Phone Screen tab in Link to Windows will be renamed Apps in the near future. This is currently only available when using the Galaxy Note20 and Note20 Ultra devices.

Additional Link to Windows options

The Link to the Windows feature allows full interaction with Android apps, and there are some additional options available as well once you’re connected to a PC.

You can create a shortcut for the Your Phone app so you’ll be able to screen mirror your phone whenever you like.

  • Open the Windows menu, and then locate the Your Phone app.
  • Right-click it, and then select Pin to taskbar.

Here’s another trick- if you’re switching between a few apps on your phone and need to resize the windows, you can do it quickly using your PC’s cursor.

For added convenience, you can also use the Windows Narrator app while you’re screen mirroring.

  • Search for the Narrator in the search bar.
  • Then select the app to launch it.

Share and transfer files with your Galaxy phone and Windows

Instead of sifting through your email or cloud storage app, use Link to Windows to quickly send files from your Galaxy phone to your Windows 10 PC.

This feature will automatically sync your recent images from your phone and display them on your computer for easy access. There’s also a way to drag and drop files between your phone and PC without using an app.

Share your files through Link to Windows

After you’ve set up the Link to Windows feature, you can sync your most recent photos or videos in your phone’s Gallery app to your PC and then save them. The Your Phone app will display up to 2,000 recent photos and videos.

  • Open the Your Phone app, and select Photos.
  • If they aren’t showing up, select Refresh at the top and wait a few seconds.
  • To do more with a particular photo, select it, and then choose from the options at the top.
  • Select Open to view the photo and make edits, Copy to create a duplicate, Save as to save it to your PC, or Share to send it to another device.

As you take more photos on your phone, the Your Phone app will remove older photo previews from your PC. It never changes or deletes any photos on the phone itself.

Share files with a USB cable

If you prefer not to use an app, you can transfer files the old-fashioned way: using a USB cable. You can use the same cable that came with your Galaxy phone.

  • Unlock your phone.
  • Connect it to a computer using the USB cable.
  • On the phone, a notification about the USB connection may appear; if needed, tap it and select the option for MTP or Transferring files.

Next, open the computer’s File Explorer program.

  • Click on the name of your phone on the side menu.
  • Go into your phone’s files and drag and drop them into your computer.
  • You can also move files from the computer into the phone’s storage.
  • You can drag and drop up to 100 files at a time, of any type.

However, moving entire folders is not supported, and no single file can be larger than 512MB. The size of the content will be adjusted to 1MB if metered data is used. For text files, the size will be limited to 128KB or less, and images will be resized to 1MB or less.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip/Fold smartphone users should keep these precautions



Samsung Fold Flip precautions

Are you using any Samsung foldable smartphone? If yes, then let us tell you that if you have a Flip or Fold smartphone, then you should know how to use it safely and properly. At the same time, you have to take some common precautions while using a Samsung Galaxy Z Flip or Fold smartphone so that the life of your smartphone is long.

Samsung’s foldable smartphone is being launched with Infinity Flex Display, which folds into a large screen terminal and is displayed with ultra-thin glass. The foldable display with its innovative design and ultra-thin glass material provides a new user experience beyond simple folding and unfolding. Through innovative OLED technology, it has been loved by countless consumers around the world.

The Korean tech giant continues to strive to improve the durability of the foldable display through continuous technological development and the application of new protective films to optimize the display panel structure and conduct various durability tests based on customer experience.

Samsung Fold Flip precautions

However, since the display structure is different from that of ordinary smartphones, it is sometimes necessary to consider the characteristics of foldable products when using them. When using any Samsung Galaxy Z Flip or Fold smartphone, remembers these precautions.

1.) Since the foldable display uses thin and flexible glass and film for its folding function, there will be slight bending depending on the viewing angle, and wrinkles may appear in the center of the folded part of the screen.

2.) If it is subjected to external force, black spots or bright spots or lines may appear on the screen, some or all will be black or bright, or cracks may appear inside the screen. Be careful not to apply external shock to the monitor.

Possible Conditions:

  • If you drop the product
  • Tap the screen with various objects like pens, nails, and keys or drop objects on the screen
  • If you turn on the screen by placing your finger on the center of the screen
  • If you press hard on the curved part of the screen or bend the screen with any third-party objects (cards, keys, sand, metal powder, etc.),

3.) The protective glass on the main screen is a genuine folding film. If you tear off the protective film at will or apply a non-genuine film, it may damage the screen.

4.) For wireless charging, first fold the product in half, and then touch the center point on the back of the product to the center point of the wireless charger. Be sure to adjust the position to ensure a good connection. Charging may not be possible or overheating may occur if placed in a position or orientation other than the illustration.
