SideSync is a great program to mirror your Samsung Smartphone screen to your PC monitor. The useful features of this program include:

  • Keyboard and mouse sharing mode
  • File sharing
  • Clipboard sharing
  • Screen sharing mode.

When you connect your Samsung Galaxy Smartphone to your computer, your phone automatically starts charging. As a result, any time your phone is connected to the PC, whether you're using the SideSync program or not, your phone is charging. To learn more on how to use this program for screen sharing, follow the instructions in our main article.

How do I get WiFi connection on my work PC?

Hello, I have installed SideSync on my Galaxy S5. It works well with the USB cable on my home and work PC's. My home PC also allows WiFi connection. When I try the WiFi connection at work the PC is not visible or recognized by the phone (nothing happens as the phone continues to scan). I have definitely selected the WiFi option on the PC so it should work. I am running Win7 on both computers.

What needs to be done on my PC to make the SideSync work? It is a Samsung ATIV new series 9. The step did not explain about the PC?

In the step: "This means your Android mobile device can be a two-way monitor , sharing whatever is on its screen with your PC screen. You can use either your mouse or keyboard on both your PC and Galaxy, Note, or Tab. Just go to SideSync Settings, and then set the location of your Samsung mobile device. Now, move your PC mouse cursor, and it will show up on your connected mobile device. You can still use your PC by simply moving the mouse cursor again. Once you have done this, you can use both devices concurrently." what need to be done on my PC to make the SideSync work It is a Samsung ATIV new series 9. The step did not explain about the PC

Hello, thank you. Trying to connect Note5 to Laptop with SideSync over WiFi?

I am trying to connect SideSync to my HP Laptop over WiFi for the first time. The phone is not being detected by the laptop.. I have tried: Pretty much everything that is readily available on the web. Laptop has Windows 10. I turned off the firewall. It should be a pretty simple and straightforward process to connect, so I don't really know what else to try.. I think it was caused by: I am at a loss at this point. It should just work.
