Connect to Wireless Display with Miracast in Windows 11

Miracast is a wireless technology your PC, laptop, or tablet can use to project your screen to wireless TVs, projectors, and streaming media players that also support Miracast. You can use this to share what you’re doing on your PC, present a slide show, or even play your favorite game on a larger screen.

The banner keeps you informed of the state of your connection, allows you to quick disconnect or reconnect to the same sink and allows you to tune the connection based on what you are doing. This tuning is done via the settings gear, which optimizes the screen to screen latency based on one of the three scenarios:

  • Gaming¬†minimizes the screen to screen latency to make gaming over a wireless connection possible.
  • Watching videos¬†mode increases the screen to screen latency to ensure the video on the big screen plays back smoothly and without glitching.
  • Working¬†modes strikes a good balance between game mode and video mode where the screen to screen latency is responsive enough that typing feels natural, while ensuring videos don‚Äôt glitch too often.

By default, all connections start off in working mode.

This tutorial will show you how to wirelessly connect your Windows 11 PC to a TV, projector, another PC, or other kind of external display that supports Miracast.
