How can I view what is playing on my Laptop (running Windows

Resolved Question:

How can I view what is playing on my Laptop (running Windows 7) on my LG 55LA965W Smart TV? Have tried downloading Smart Share software from LG site and others but found it very difficult to understand instructions e.g. one was asking for an APP ID which even after following their instructions made absolutely no sense to me!
Hope you can suggest something.

In-order to share laptop screen on LG Smart TV you either require a HDMI or VGA cable. I recommend HDMI cable as it gives High Definition picture quality.

Smart Share can be used just to share files on a computer. You cannot view laptop screen using it. Its mean for file sharing. You can play music, Videos etc.. using it..

Please let me know if you have further query on this. I am happy to assist you.
