How to Mirror Android to Windows 11 Computer with USB Cable ?

Copper Contributor

My objective is to establish a connection between my Android smartphone and the computer through a USB cable in order to mirror the device screen. However, I am uncertain about the steps involved in achieving this task. Consequently, I am seeking guidance on the forums to understand the precise method of mirroring an Android to Windows 11 computer with USB cable. Any step-by-step instructions or suggestions regarding the necessary software or settings adjustments would be greatly appreciated.

 

Update:  A colleague from an online forum suggested I try out the MirrorTo application. Following their advice, I downloaded and tested it myself. It has proven to be extremely handy. Now, I'm able to mirror my screen to my PC daily with ease.

To use scrcpy, follow these steps:

  3. Connect your Android device to your computer with a USB cable.
  4. Open a command prompt on your computer and navigate to the scrcpy directory.
  5. Type the following command and press Enter:

Setting up Scrcpy may require installing additional dependencies and executing commands in a terminal, which can be challenging for me, as i am not familiar with command-line tools.
