I have a Roku TV that supports Windows 10's "Wireless Display" feature. On my laptop, I am able to "Project" to it with no problem. (OK, it's actually pretty slow, but the point is that it works.) On my Windows 10 desktop, however, I can't connect to it or even get to the same menu.
For review, here's how to connect to a wireless display in Windows 10:
- Open the Action Center (bottom right corner of the Windows 10 desktop)
- Click on "Project" (If you don't see this option, you may first have to expand to view all the options, depending on your screen size)
- Click on "Connect to a wireless display"
- Select your desired wireless display
It's step #3 where things fall down. There is no "Connect to a wireless display" option on my desktop. My guess here is that since my desktop is connected to the network via Ethernet, Windows 10 somehow assumes that I won't be able to connect to a wireless display.
Apparently I'm not the only one running into this. The same question was asked on the Windows forums, but there haven't been any replies yet. There are dozens of us! Dozens!
Is this just a Windows 10 bug or does this "wireless display" feature use WiFi specifically to connect to the device, rather than connecting to a display on the network. If the answer is the latter, I'm interested to know how it does that because it's not something I'm familiar with.
