Aside from streaming, I utilize the streaming sticks’ screen mirror ability to play my own media from my phone and Windows PC on a daily basis. Here’s how to quickly screen mirror on a Fire Stick using Windows.
2 Ways to Screen Mirror on Fire Stick
1. Native Miracast Option
The Fire Stick features a built-in screen mirroring feature that can be found in the settings. Open Fire TV Settings from the home page to begin screen mirroring.
Select the “Display & Sounds” option on the options screen.
You can select “Enable Display Mirroring” by scrolling down. This will bring up a page where you can wait to begin screen mirroring from other devices. You should not leave this page if you want to mirror your PC to the Fire Stick.
Open the Action Center on your PC by clicking the Notification icon in the bottom right corner. You’ll notice a “Connect” toggle here; click it to begin looking for devices.
You can find your Fire TV Stick here, click it, and it will connect in a few seconds.
That’s all there is to it; you’ve successfully screen mirrored your PC on your Fire Stick.
By pressing the disconnect button at the top, you can disconnect later.
2. Use Third-Party Apps
The Windows connect option can help you get the job done, but the main drawback is that it only shows what’s on your computer’s screen. When streaming from a PC, I frequently want to show just a single tab or file and continue working on the PC without disturbing the display. In any case, you can do it quickly and efficiently using the Chrome browser.
To begin, turn on your Fire TV and download the “AirScreen” software. Because it’s on the App Store, you can use Alexa to search for it and then click on Airscreen App.
To begin the installation, click the download icon.
To use the app, click “Open” after it has been installed.
On the Welcome screen, select “Start Now” from the drop-down menu.
To turn on the screen mirror for your fire stick, click “Start.”
Now go to your PC’s Chrome browser and pick “Cast” from the three-dot menu.
You can find the source drop-down here, click it, and choose Cast Tab to only cast that Chrome tab, Cast Desktop to only cast the entire desktop screen like the native option, or Cast File to only cast any file in your file manager.
That way, you can keep working while streaming some media or simply showing something to everyone in the room.

It would be amazing if we could show a single window, however, we can only show the Chrome tab or the entire desktop right now. In any case, in this scenario, the cast file is always a great tool for me to play something and work in front of my TV.
