  1. +Akhi Joe unfortunately, you cannot use the keyboard. As the application
    only projects the touchscreen, you can only use your mouse. This means you
    can type or use the word flow keyboard with your mouse though.

    As for transferring files using the Project My Screen app. No. The app is
    only for emulating the screen of your Windows Phone device. You can drag
    and drop files onto your device with it plugged in to your PC using USB,
    but not through the app itself.

    come back again .-.
