Connect Samsung Galaxy S6 (not Edge) to PC?


AC Question

Connect Samsung Galaxy S6 (not Edge) to PC

I do not have an option to get Cable or good WiFi signal where I live. I can only stream my TV shows and movies from my Sprint service on my Galaxy S6 smartphone. I want to connect it to my laptop so that the screen is bigger to watch my these. So I have 3 questions. My laptop is a HP.

1.) What is the best way to do this?
2.)Does quick connect do this? And, if so, where do find Quick Connect on my phone.
3.)If Quick Connect is not an option...are there any other?

Not to a laptop - most laptops have no video input. Connect it to a TV set with an HDMI input and a Chromecast device. (The laptop may have an HDMI port, but that's video out from the laptop to a monitor or TV.)

As Rukbat says, Chromecast is the answer for you. I have used it for several years and it works great. No muss no fuss. Throw anything from your tablet or phone to your TV.
