    I have installed the latest build of Windows 10 mobile on Lumia 720 and it's working nicely without any lags.
    However, I am not able to project it's screen to laptop's display. It was possible on WP 8.1. There was also an app for it.
    It is said that the "Connect" feature has replaced this app on Windows 10 and Windows 10 mobile. However, "Connect" feature on Windows 10 mobile only searches for wireless display.
    How can I use it to project my screen to my laptop's screen using USB. Any help in this matter will be highly appreciated.

    Use Project My Screen from Microsoft. Install it, connect your phone via USB to PC and select YES on dialog box in your Windows 10 Phone screen. Pc keyboard controls are: F1 - help, Esc - quit windowed mode, B - background image on/off, E - expanded screen, F - full screen.

    Weird. Mine doesn't work.

    I have a Lumia 1520 and a Surface Pro 3. I plug my phone into the computer and I never get the prompt on my phone and the ProjectMyScreenApp is totally black.

    I've tried everything. Ever since upgrading to W10M, my Project My Screen App has never worked... :(

    What phone are you running?

    Well I returned to Windows phone 8.1 and now "project my screen" is working. There is a setting named - "project my screen" in 8.1. Unfortunately this setting has been removed from Windows 10 mobile. Some people say that "Connect" feature has replaced "project my screen" on Windows 10. But it doesn't work.......

    Yeah... I was wondering if you had any luck after Demian's post.

    Those screen shots confirm that Project My Screen App is working on Windows 10 Mobile... but it doesn't confirm how he got it to work. I have tried all sorts of things including his installation instructions - no dice.

    I'd love to use the Project My Screen App with Windows 10 Mobile... :/

    I posted steps which I did...and worked perfectly every time I connect to Pc via usb. I did a hard reset after installation of 10572 Windows 10 Mobile TP. Plugged in phone and opened Project my screen app in Pc. Phone automatically displayed notification "Allow screen projection" and that's it. It works to me just like that, on Lumia630 and 535 on 10572 build. I haven't found any settings in phone for screen projection, only "Show a dot on the connected display" in Phone display settings, but that's unimportant in this case. I'm guessing maybe some phones can't use this app right now, maybe it'll be fixed in future build.Alternatively you can run Project my screen as administrator, or update usb drivers, reinstall Windows Device Recovery Tool - it installs some usb phone drivers too. As a last resort try hard reset.
    Note: Project my screen won't display notification if display is locked, it has to be unlocked!When I locked my phone, opened Project my screen and no notification was on phone, but notification came when I unlocked it.

    Okay, I just got this working. Thanks so much for the summary. It totally put me in the right place. Here's what I did to finally get it to work:


    • I Unplugged the phone and removed the phone from the Devices list (Classic Control Panel --> Devices and Printers
    • I opened up Device Manager: Right-Click on Start Button --> Devices Manager
    • I then DELETED all the Lumia Device Drivers under Universal Serial Bus devices
      (I had a couple listed here: Lumia 520, 1020 & 1520)
    • Restarted the SP3
    • Opened up the Project My Screen App on my computer
    • Plugged in the Phone


    Bam. The Project My Screen prompt successfully showed up on the Lumia 1520.

    Thanks again for throwing me in the right place. Hope these steps help others.

    Installing windows device recovery toll disables project my screen app from connecting with your phone. I install WDRT, project my screen can't work. If i remove it and reinstall phone drivers and app, then it works

    Mine's mysteriously working now, though not every time. When it doesn't I have to turn the phone off and on again and maybe the next time it works.

    what issues have you run into? Can you install the project my screen app on pc?
    Is your phone on windows 8.1 or 10?
    When you connect the phone to start project my screen , what shoes in the pms app?

    Glad I've found this thread, having same issue on a Lumia 630, when running PMS, I don't get any notification on the phone. Currently doing a hard reset (haven't made since updated to 318) let's see how it goes.

    the issue is with the pc from my experience, when wdrt has malfunctioned on the pc, it messes up project my screen. the only way I could make it work was to reset my pc

    Did you get it working on USB 3.0 ? I haven't tried removing WDRT, but currently Project My Screen only works with my phone with a USB 2.0 port. Maybe WDRT messes only with USB 3.0 stuff :0

    This is true even in 2018. I wonder if there's a way to undo some registry change that WDRT imposes, that will preclude having to do a reset?
