This is how to cast your laptop to your TV screen.

If for some reason you can’t access some things on your TV but you wish to watch everything you would on your laptop on TV then there’s a way to do so. Nowadays, as long as you have a laptop and wifi you can pretty much watch anything on your TV screen. There are several ways to get it done—both wired and wireless—and which you choose just depends on your situation.

Below are some ways you can easily do so:

1.Use a HDMI cable

A standard HDMI cable is still the best way to get your PCs screen onto a TV. This is true whether that computer is a living room PC using a TV as it’s only video output, or PC with its own monitor that’s mirroring the contents of the primary display to the TV. Plug one end into an HDMI port on the back of your TV and the other into the HDMI port on your laptop or desktop. Switch the TV to the necessary input and you’re done!

2.Chromecast screen casting

Google Chromecast offers an easy way to get your computer’s display onto your TV without any cables. While Chromecast is generally used to “cast” content from a specific app or web page to your TV, you can also cast a specific browser tab. Not only that, but the Chromecast browser extension also lets you cast your computers entire desktop to your chromecast and view it on your TV screen.

3.Airplay mirroring

Apple’s homegrown solution—AirPlay Mirroring—requires that you have an Apple TV box hooked up to your TV. If you do, you can use Apple’s AirPlay to wirelessly mirror the contents of a Mac, iPhone, or iPad’s display to your TV. Unlike other wireless display options, using AirPlay Mirroring requires that you go all-in on Apple’s device ecosystem. However, if you do use Apple devices and have an Apple TV, AirPlay Mirroring works quite well.  If you don’t, your only option would be to go with something like Airbeam, which allows you to cast to your LG smart TV from a Mac computer.

4.Miracast wireless display

Miracast is supposed to be an open alternative to Apple’s airplay allowing you to “cast” an Android or Windows device’s display wirelessly to a TV or set-top box. Support for casting is allowing you to “cast” an Android or Windows device’s display wirelessly to a TV or set-top box like the roku. If you have hardware that supports Miracast, feel free to give it a shot, of course. But don’t go out of your way to buy Miracast-enabled hardware, as there’s a good chance you’ll be disappointed with the experience. Miracast clearly needs more time in the oven before it can hope to become the easy-to-use, interoperable standard it’s supposed to be.

I personally use Netflix on my phone to mirror it on TV and it works out pretty well. Additionally if you want to watch something on YouTube or Solarmovies they both give you the option of mirroring your screen on TV.
