Is it possible to wirelessly connect your laptop to the TV?
Of course it is. If you’re getting bored or annoyed with your laptop’s tiny screen during the coronavirus lockdown, maybe you should try using your big TV as a monitor instead. It’s great being able to sit back on your sofa and surf the web, play PC games or stream video from apps not available on your TV. Or maybe you just want a bigger view for video chat while you’re stuck at home.
Mirroring means putting the same content on both your laptop’s screen and the TV. It’s more common and generally easier than screen extending — where you see different content on both, making the TV an extension of your laptop’s screen.
The most basic PC-to-TV connection consists of running a wire from your computer to the HDMI input on your TV. If you have an older TV and an older laptop, there are options like VGA, but that’s basically the Dark Ages at this point.
Laptops and PCs have a bunch of different connections, so which wire or adapter you’ll need to run depends on what computer you have. If you’re not sure, check the manual or Google the model to determine its specs. Here’s the rundown.
3.Full sized HDMI
If you’re lucky, your laptop has a full-sized HDMI output, so you can use a standard HDMI cable to run to your TV.
4.Cast from a chrome browser
If you don’t have a TV device with AirPlay or Miracast compatibility you can still mirror your screen from the chrome browser on any laptop It works with any of the devices from the Chromebook list above. Only content on the browser will be visible, and certain websites won’t work.
You can also cast content from a variety of apps, like Netflix or YouTube, to most smart TVs. This isn’t screen mirroring, but if you’re just looking to get some content from your phone to a bigger screen, this is an easy way to do it.
