I’ve been using the Connect App for several years. It’s super useful when you need to share your Android screen to your Windows device, or any other device sharing screen scenario.
However, today I realized that I don’t have my Connect app installed in my Windows 10
I don’t know why, maybe one of the Insider Builds remove the App, or any other crazy ideas. Moving on, I put my focus to figure out how to install this app. I really need it!
There is not much information about how to install this, but I found that I had the [Projecting to this PC] feature in Windows 10. Which was disabled for me.
Now it’s time to add this, in the Optional Features section in Settings.
Browsing the optional features, I found [Wireless Display]. That should be the one:
Warning, after the install time, is also REBOOT time! Windows being Windows.
And, now I had the connect App up and running to rock some Hololens demos

You saved my ass today. The connect application somehow was deleted after the Windows update.

I’m so glad I found this, but my install has frozen. Soooo disappointing! Thanks for the info though.
You rock! Windoze sucks.
I spent a couple of years on nothing but Linux and a Chromebook.
Going back to a Windows laptop recently for work, I feel like I have gone backwards in time 10 years… Sh*t like this is unreliable for no damn reason…
