You can use the Projecting to this PC feature to have apps and content from another device show on your PC screen.

Projecting to this PC uses the Wireless Display app to wirelessly project (mirror) a phone, PC, or Android device to the screen on your PC, and use its keyboard, mouse, and other devices too.

When you project to your PC from a device, you can select to Always allow, Allow once, Block once, or Always block the device to connect when asked to project to this PC.

If you select Always allow, the device gets added under Allowed Devices in the "Device Access List" for the Wireless Display app. If you set Ask to project to this PC to First time only, then you will no longer get asked to project to your PC by Allowed Devices after the first time.

If you select Always block, the device gets added under Blocked Devices in the "Device Access List" for the Wireless Display app. Blocked Devices will not be allowed to project to your PC.

This tutorial will show you how to allow or block devices to project to your PC for only your account in Windows 11.
