    Hello,
    I updated my Surface 3 Pro to Windows 10 and I have a problem with my Miracast Device.
    When I look in my Connected Devices, it show my MicrosoftDisplayAdapter_06 Not connected, but there is no connect option except Remove device. On Windows 8.1 I had the option to just Connect and Disconnect, but not in windows 10.
    Look like I have to remove the device each time then Add it again to connect again, this is crazy.
    Also I don't find the options below I had on windows 8.1 anywhere ?
    PC screen only
    Duplicate
    Extend
    Second screen only

    Ist all that normal with windows 10?
    Thank you for your help.

    From the Notification/Action Center press/click on Connect when you see your MWDA select it and should connect and then the options to slect how the screen projects should appear....

    No worries - your are attempting to use it like Windows 8.1....for Windows 10 we use the Notification/Action Center to get there....

    Either swipe from the left (like we did to bring up the Charms in Windows 8.x) or click on the icon that looks like a "Speech Bubble" in the task tray:

    When the Notification/Action Center Comes up select Connect:
