With the Phone Link app on your PC linked to your iPhone or Android phone, you can instantly access the Android apps installed on your mobile device right on your Windows 10 or Windows 11 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.
The Phone Link app will automatically run in the background at startup by default to sync with your linked phone, and to open as needed from the Phone Link icon on the taskbar system tray.
You can also turn on "Open Phone Link when I sign in to Windows" to have the Phone Link app automatically open at startup.
This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off open Phone Link app when you sign in to your account in Windows 11.
