After upgrading to Windows 10 Mobile, I cannot find one of my favourite Windows Phone feature: The Project My Screen Functionality. I have tried searching through my settings, but I cannot seem to find the feature anywhere.

I have the project my screen app installed, and it functions well. I was using it with this very same phone when it was running Windows Phone 8.1 Update.

Is it still available in Windows 10 Mobile, or it was dumped. If it is there, please tell me how i can access it again.

It is still available in Windows 10 mobile. But you need to connect your phone to a USB 2.0 port on your computer and don't use a USB 3.0 port.

For further reference see this thread from Microsoft community.


In response to comments: Now a days, most of the computers and have laptops have USB 3.0 ports as well as USB 2.0 ports. Your phone screen will not project if you are connecting your phone on a USB 3.0 port. Normally in Laptops you will have USB 2.0 ports on one side and 3.0 on the other. If you are unsure which is the USB 2.0 port try all the USB pors. If your computer has only 3.0 ports then currently you cannot use this app.

You can also find the USB ports in the device manager. Particulary a USB 3.0 port will have its version mentioned. See the screenshot below out of all my USB ports the only one USB 3.0 port has it's has it's version number mentioned on the device manager.

  • @Kelvinelove Under Settings!!! I never told to look in settings. Connect your phone to a USB 2.0 port that your computer has. That's all. I will update my answer to add more clarification. – Kolappan N May 25 '16 at 17:02
  • @Kelvinelove Updated my answer. Hope you get the idea now. If my answer is not clear enough for you feel free to ask. – Kolappan N May 25 '16 at 17:15
  • "you need to connect your phone to a USB 2.0 port" - "Your phone screen will not project if you are connecting your phone on a USB 2.0 port". Wait, so which is it? And why will projecting the screen only work on one type of USB port and not the other? – Indrek May 25 '16 at 19:02
