I have since found out that smart share is no more now like post #44

@UnTech Meda thanks for the reply, the laptop and TV are both on the same WiFi network. Network sharing settings turned on, media sharing settings turned on, firewall checked, all drivers / firmware and operating systems up to date, turned on optional features for wireless display. I can play media on the TV that's stored on the laptop - just not able to screen share my laptop. I checked that the TV model can accept screen share which it can (I can mirror my phone to the TV without any issues).
Yes I agree it should, but it doesn't.1 year ago
@Colour Chaos Hi Sean, you changed your channel name, you confused me , no worries, here is one option, which you can try, hope it works. On your laptop, click Starrt -> Settings and click "Devices" and click Bluetooth or other device, your TV should get listed, which you can select and share your screen.
Yes I saw that. There is no Screen share app per se. The LG rep told me it is built in. As I said all the videos I've seen mention Screen Share, but I don't have one in my list of apps/options and LG says it's automatically in the TV now.I am out of ideas (sorry)
have you seen this about adding tv as device

Screen Mirroring From PC to an LG Smart TV
My last thought was can you borrow a laptop. So to be 100% Certain you can mirror to LG from Dell - correct?Just tried it and it works without issue. Both I7, both win 10 20H2????
Yes that is correct. The Dell even shows Miricast in devices.Great assistance given here, Peter. Nice job!
So if I follow, the Dell laptop mirrors to the TV no problem, but the Lenovo does not. Correct?
