How to Screencast your Android Smartphone on Windows 10

Android may soon let you turn off the display while screen casting

There are many times when any one feels the need to project their smartphone’s screen onto a Windows PC. Be it Android or iOS, you can make use of a combination of apps on your PC and your phone to mirror the latter’s display to the former. Why would you need to do so? Well, you might want to  show someone photos you clicked with your phone on your laptop, or you might want to show a presentation from your phone on a laptop connected to a projector, or you may want to watch a movie from your phone on a laptop screen. Whatever your reason might be, there are multiple ways of hooking up your smartphone’s display to that of your Windows PC. However, do not expect these apps to help you play games from your phone on your PC’s screen. The lag and display format will definitely hinder that experience. For everything else, here are some of the most popular apps used to mirror Android and iOS phones to Windows PCs - both desktop and laptops.
To turn your PC into a cast receiver, just open Windows 10’s Start menu and open the “Connect” app. If you don’t see this app, you need to upgrade to the Anniversary Update.
With the app open, you’ll see a message that your PC is now ready for you to connect wirelessly. That’s it. You don’t need to mess with any firewall or network server settings. Just open the app whenever you want to cast.
         Now Scroll down the status bar Of your Android Phone & Turn on wifi & bluetooth
Then click on "Cast"  if that option is not available then go to settings & Search Cast                                                            otherwise go to next step.
Then click on cast
Now it will search For your Device, if no devices are found then click on settings & Enable Wireless Display 
After connecting to your device the Connect app will produce notifications that you’ll find an the action center. For example, when we connected an Android device, we saw a message saying protected content can’t be displayed, and that we couldn’t use the mouse on our PC to control the Android device’s screen.
To stop projecting, just close the Connect window on the PC receiving the remote display or end the remote display connection on the device projecting to it.
