Samsung’s Galaxy Tab as a second display for PC
How to use Samsung’s Galaxy Tab as a Second Display via Setting
Step 1: Swipe to find the Second Screen icon
Simply swipe down from the top of the screen to get the quick settings menu, where you can toggle the flashlight, airplane mode, and more. Now slide right to reveal a small number of additional controls, click Second Screen.
Step 2: Select your display experience
A page describing Second Screen and how it operates will subsequently appear on your Tab tablet. The best experience is achieved when your tablet and computer connect to the same Wi-Fi network, as explained on the page. You can also choose between a display that is designed just for watching videos (with a more fluid, less choppy display) and one that is more responsive and can be used to play games.
Step 3: Enable the Second Screen app on your Samsung Galaxy PC
The Second Screen app on your Samsung computer must then be enabled. Samsung should include this app as part of its default set-up. If it is, when you click on it,Second Screen should automatically detect the nearby tablet and then connect. At this point, you can treat the Tab tablet as just another display, that you can adjust as part of the Windows 10/11 Settings menu (System > Display).
When you connect to an external tablet, your computer should display a little floating pop-out window that says “Mark’s Tab S8+”. The tablet may be disconnected from the computer by pressing the little Disconnect button right next to it. You’ve reached the last stage now.
