Windows 10 Fall Update is present on Windows 10 devices (well on some of them) for more than a week, and we’re still discovering all improvements that it brought to the system and its features. This time, we’re going to talk about one tucked away Microsoft Edge improvement. Namely, you’re now able to connect Microsoft Edge with a wireless display or TV. It works the best with the Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter, but it also supports both Miracast and DLNA devices.

How to connect Microsoft Edge with a wireless display

To use this feature and display the content from Microsoft Edge, you’ll need to do the following:

  1. Connect your wireless device to your computer and make sure everything is connected well
  2. Open Microsoft Edge, and search for any multimedia content (that could be a YouTube video, a photo album from OneDrive or Facebook, or even a music playlist on Spotify. There are just a few working examples, but you can experiment on your own)
  3. Click on the three dot menu in the upper right corner of Microsoft Edge, and choose Cast media to devicecast microsoft edge
  4. Edge will search for any wireless device you have connected with your computer, so you can select it from the list
  5. The cast of your Microsoft Edge Content will show up your wireless device

Microsoft introduced Microsoft Edge as a successor of Internet Explorer, and it brings new updates and improvements to the browser from its early testing phases.

This addition will make it a lot easier to show your content from Microsoft Edge on the wireless display, you basically can make everything work with just a few clicks.
