How to connect android screen to pc over WI-FI

First, we have to have activated the usb debugging option on our android, that option is available in the developer options. To activate developer mode you must investigate on your device.

Download scrcpy from your official site

Once connected we must go to the folder where we have put it and run the terminal in that folder in my case cmd in windows.

scrcpy installation folder

Having connected our Android device, run to list all devices connected.

adb devices
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Running the adb devices command

As we can see we see the connected devices, now we run a server in local network.

adb tcpip 5555
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Running the adb tcpip 5555 command

It is necessary that the laptop and the mobile are in the same network now in the configurations of the mobile we check the ip of the mobile and run.

adb connect <ip_addres_mobile>:5555
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Getting the ip of the mobile

Connected to the mobile via wifi

We can check with the command to list and something like this will appear (with the mobile disconnected from the usb).

Verifying the connection with the mobile

Now run scrcpy.exe
