You may not know it, but your Windows 11 PC is capable of mirroring the content displayed on your Android smartphone to your screen. However, the feature, which is supported by most Android smartphones that offer a content sharing option, is not turned on by default.

In fact, it is part of the additional features that Microsoft offers to download and install from your operating system settings. Once set up, it allows you to show a slideshow, show a video, or stream a photo slideshow on the big screen of a computer. The icing on the cake, this option works without additional cables or accessories, and it only takes a few seconds to set up. You will only need one thing, connect your smartphone and your PC to the same Wi-Fi network.
