Wired Connections

All you need is a Microsoft Mini DisplayPort to HDMI adapter and a HDMI cable. Simply plug the adapter into your Surface Pro and connect the HDMI cable and you're all set! To change your mirroring settings, use Windows + P to switch between extending or mirroring your display.

Wireless Connections

For this method, we recommend you use a projector with a powered USB or HDMI port, such as the Pico Genie M550 Plus or the Pico Genie P200.

Simply purchase one of our Wireless Mirroring Dongles and plug it in. Make sure it's set to the Miracast setting (just push the button on the dongle) and follow the following steps on your Surface device.

1. Select the search box in the taskbar, enter project to a second screen, and in the search results, select Project to a second screen.

2. Choose one of the following options:

PC screen only: You’ll see everything on your Surface screen. (When you're connected to a wireless projector, this option changes to Disconnect.)
Duplicate: You’ll see the same things on all screens.
Extend: You'll see everything spread over all screens, and you can drag and move items between them.
Second screen only: You’ll see everything on the connected screen or screens, and your Surface screen will be blank.
