This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off allow Phone Link app to display apps and websites from your Android phone for your account in Windows 10 and Windows 11.

With the Phone Link app on your PC linked to your 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.

You can easily access three of your most recently used apps from your Android phone using the Phone Link icon in your Windows taskbar navigation area. You will also find your recently used apps at the top of your Apps page inside the Phone Link app.

2 Click/tap on the Settings (gear) icon. (see screenshot below)

4 Under Apps in the right Features pane, turn On (default) or Off Allow Phone Link to display apps and websites from my mobile device for what you want.

Thank you! I am using a Pixel phone, so I guess this app isn't going to work for me. I wish Microsoft had given me that information up front, or anywhere in their Help or Troubleshooting pages for the app. I could not figure it out! Thanks again for your help.
