    Can anybody tell me if I can cast a surface to my laptop, which is connected to a projector so I can walk around and display/edit what is being displayed?

    Welcome to the forum nebraska

    I do not know if this is possible, although I may be wrong. I'd have thought that as opposed to projecting the surface to the laptop, the easier option would be to create a remote desktop connection on the laptop and access via the surface.

    I don't know what kind of projecteor you have, in terms of inputs, but I'd have thought your best bet would be to use a wireless display adaptor plugged into the projector and skip out the laptop as a middleman entirely as I've had varying luck with remote desktop concerning latency/lag

    Yes, with the Windows 10 AU running on both and the laptop is Miracast Capable WiFi and Video you can use the UWP Program called Connect....I use this all the time
