I just figured out how to do this the other day and I thought it was pretty wicked so I decided to write up a tutorial. Intro Do you ever wish you could curl up comfortably on the couch and play your PC games on your TV rather than being glued to that uncomfortable office chair to use your desktop? Maybe you have a laptop but lament at how small the screen is and wish you had a bigger screen to enjoy your games on. This tutorial will show you how to hook up your laptop to the TV so you can enjoy your PC games on a bigger screen from the comfort of your couch. What You Will Need A laptop with the PC games you want to play installed on it and an HDMI port (you can use a desktop but it will have to be very close to your TV for the HDMI cord to reach so a laptop is easier because it's portable and I recommend that over a desktop). An HDMI cord (the longer, the better) A wireless keyboard (or a wired one that's long enough to reach from your laptop to wherever you're sitting) A wireless mouse A TV with an HDMI port An Xbox controller (optional) Some basic tech knowledge (you need to know what an HDMI cord is and where to plug it in on your devices and how to connect a wireless keyboard and mouse to your laptop, that's about it). The Steps Get your laptop, turn it on and make sure your wireless keyboard (or Xbox controller if you choose to use that, instead) and mouse are properly connected to it. Every keyboard and mouse is a little bit different so just follow the manufacturer's instructions to get that set up. Get your HDMI cord and use it to connect your laptop to your TV. Make sure both your laptop and your TV have an HDMI port. Most newer laptops and TVs (made within the last 5 years or so) will have an HDMI port but very old laptops and TVs are not likely to have one. All smart TVs have HDMI capabilities. The HDMI cord will project whatever is on your laptop screen onto your TV. Grab your TV's remote controller and look for a button that either says Input or Source. Pressing that button will allow you to change the TV's input setting. You'll want one of the HDMI inputs. If pressing the Input/Source button just flicks you to another input, just keep pressing the button until you find the one that has your laptop's screen on it. If pressing the Input/Source button brings up a menu, choose one of the HDMI inputs (there may be more than one if your TV has several HDMI ports) and just go through the HDMI inputs until you find the one that's displaying your laptop screen. Since setting up your wireless mouse and keyboard was one of the first things you did, just take those to wherever you're sitting and use them to launch whatever PC game you'd like to play, using your TV as your monitor. When your game launches, just play as normal from your couch with your wireless keyboard (or Xbox controller) and mouse! You're now playing your PC games on your TV! Pretty neat, huh?
