A few years ago, we got the chance to see how a modern computer works with a custom-built Windows 10 PC running the Android OS.
That demo was all about making the process of launching apps more painless, but today, we’re showing you how to use a smartphone to run your PC apps.
If you’re still using Windows 10 Mobile for your Android phone, we highly recommend you turn off the “Advanced” menu option.
That will let you choose to use your phone as your desktop instead of a touchscreen device, but you’ll still need to go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Disable “Android as Desktop” and then enable it again.
You should also enable “Screen Lock” and “Screen Off” from the “Apps” section of the Settings app.
That should be enough to turn off any pesky apps that aren’t connected to your PC.
If your Android PC can run Windows 10 apps on it, you can still use it as your PC in Windows.
It’ll just need to be plugged into the USB port on the back of your PC, so it’ll need to have an HDMI connection.
We’ve done this in our Android PC guide , and it works just fine.
But if you don’t have an Android phone that’s plugged into your PC’s USB port, you’ll need an adapter to get that working.
Here’s a quick video to show you how:Once you’ve got that working, plug it in and you should be able to run a couple of apps.
There’s also an emulator for Android that runs in Windows, so you can try to play games like Gears of War: Ultimate Edition on your Android.
