The computer most likely has Miracast support in case it was originally released with Windows 8.1 or the Windows 8.1 RT operating system. Those who upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 don't have this support.

However, there is a simple solution in case your computer doesn't support Miracast. You can easily make use of ScreenBeam a USB transmitter from Actiontec. This small device allows wireless display on Windows 7/8. Even though they don't have the wireless display capability.

Next, you will need a Miracast adapter for your TV as well. These adapters simply plug into the HDMI port of a TV, thus making it possible for your computer to communicate with the display device without using cables or wires.


Miracast adapters can be found from a variety of manufacturers. Best of all would be Microsoft's wireless video card ($ 59) and ScreenBeam Pro Wireless Receiver, which is compatible with Windows 10.



Make sure the firmware for the adapter is updated to the latest version, go to the Support section of the manufacturer's website. Search for your specific device and follow the instructions to download and install the firmware.

Once you have everything ready, follow these steps to project anything from your computer screen to your TV, without using any cables.
