Get Started with Windows 10 Mobile

Welcome to Continuum for phone

Continuum turns your phone into a big-screen projector and a big-time productivity tool. Use a dock or adapter to connect to a TV or monitor, then use your apps and see your content on a larger screen. Want to do even more? Connect a keyboard and mouse, and get productive.

Note

Continuum requires additional hardware and is only available on select new phones running Windows 10 Mobile. Shop for compatible phones and accessories.

Use your phone like a PC

Connect a keyboard and mouse to grant your phone PC-like powers. Create and edit Office docs, send emails, even type text messages on your connected screen when your thumbs get tired. When you’ve finished, your work goes with you – it’s saved on your phone.

Ready for a break? You can watch videos, browse your photos, or surf the web on your connected screen.

Use your phone like a phone

Even when you’re connected to a display or monitor, you can still use your phone in all the usual ways. Make and receive calls, send texts, check your social media apps – it’s all still a tap away.

Use your phone as a touchpad

To use your phone to control your connected screen, select Tap to control in the Continuum banner at the top of your screen. Then swipe your finger around the phone’s screen to move the cursor.

Make it yours

Change the background photo on your connected screen as often as you like. On Start Start symbol, swipe over to the All apps list, then select Settings  > Personalisation  > Start. Under Second display, make your pick.

Note

You’ll only see Second display as an option when your phone is connected to a TV or monitor.
