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 automatically optimize an Android app or phone screen window sizing when opened from the Your Phone app on your Windows 10 PC.

This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off optimize Android app window sizing in Your Phone app on Windows 10 PC.

EXAMPLE: "Optimize app window sizing on my PC" turned on and off

No matter what I do, every time I close the 'Your Phone' app, that option just goes back to the default value. Is there any way to make it stick?

I'm seeing the same thing with Your Phone 1.20112.68.0. Hopefully, it will be fixed in the next release. Please be sure to send feedback to Microsoft about this bug to help make sure they are aware.

I completely forgot Feedback Hub was a thing. I just reported it, thank you.
