I'm trying to use Screen Share on my LG TV (60UH6035) and connect it to my Windows 10 PC.  Going through the Settings-Devices menu on the PC, I can add the TV in "Add a device", and then on the TV select my PC as the network to connect to under Wi-Fi Direct.  The issue is then I get a notification on the TV to "Please accept the request on your [PC NAME] now." and I have no idea where or how to do that.  It isn't obvious to me - since it's the PC name and not the network name, I suspect I'm not trying to login to my router.


I'd think I'd have some option in the Wi-Fi section of my Settings, but nothing is jumping out at me.  I imagine this is simple and I'm just being brain-dead, but what do I need to do?

Did you install SmartShare on your PC? I have LG OS myself and I think that's the only way to properly share between them. Not the Win10 Settings-Devices menu.

Once you have the app installed, you should get the popup asking you to accept the screenshare request.

Hope this helps!
