Miracast in Windows 10 can easily support mirroring from devices like laptop or Android phone to  Desktop. Using Miracast mirroring is easy. It comes pre-installed in Windows 10 and sometimes just needs to be enabled. All of the laptops or PC with wireless connectivity hardware support miracast.

Miracast uses the PC adaptor and WiFi for the connectivity. Firstly you need to find out that your PC supports Miracast. Once you have checked for Miracast connectivity, Ensure Wi-Fi is switched on and try again – the warning message should disappear.
