Fix: Install Missing Connect App in Windows 10 [Miracast Wireless Display]

Windows 10 comes pre-installed with the Miracast wireless display feature that allows you to project your screen to other supported devices. Additionally, it also comes with the Connect app for casting your phone’s screen to your PC.

If you have recently updated to the newer version of Windows 10, you may notice the Connect app is missing. This is because Microsoft does not install the wireless display feature by default anymore.
