Phone Turn On or Off Android Phone Screen while Connected to Your Phone app on Windows 10 PC


You can tap into the power of Your Phone app with Link to Windows integration on select Surface Duo and Samsung devices to instantly access your Android phone’s mobile apps directly from your Windows 10 PC.

With Your Phone apps, you can instantly access the Android apps installed on your mobile device right on your PC. Using a Wi-Fi connection, Apps allows you to browse, play, order, chat, and more – all while using your PC’s larger screen and keyboard. You can add your Android apps as favorites on your PC, pin them to your Start menu and taskbar, and open them in separate windows to use side-by-side with apps on your PC – helping you stay productive.

Apps replaced the phone screen option in the left pane of the Your Phone app, but Phone screen is still available. Phone screen will mirror your Android phone screen the same way it did before, but it will be on a separate window from the Your Phone app. Apps provides an easier way to interact with all of the apps installed on your Android device by launching them directly.

You can turn on or off to hide your mobile Android phone's screen while it is connected to your Windows 10 PC using the Your Phone app to open apps or phone screen on your phone.
