The Nintendo Switch is a great little gaming console that allows you to play your favorite Nintendo games on the go. However, there are times when you may want to connect your Switch to a larger monitor. This can happen when you’re traveling or if your TV is broken and you need to see the screen clearly.
You can connect your Switch to a laptop or desktop computer with an HDMI cable. This is one of the simplest ways to do it and will enable you to view your Switch on the display of your computer.
Alternatively, you can also use an external capture card to stream and record your game on your PC. This can be a good option for people who want to share their game play with others.
How to Connect a Nintendo Switch Pro Controller with Windows
The Pro Controller is an excellent gamepad for playing games on the Switch, and it has a few tricks up its sleeve that make it perfect for playing your favorite PC games. The slick design, responsive touchpad, and excellent motion sensing and vibration tech all work together to create a great gaming experience.
To start with, you need to make sure that your PC has a USB port that can support data transfer (sold separately). Once this is verified, all that’s left to do is connect the Switch controller to your PC via the Bluetooth device settings menu.
This is a straightforward process that doesn’t require any additional hardware and works with both Pro controllers and Joy-con controllers. The process works regardless of whether you’re using a wired or wireless connection.
How to Copy Game Screenshots and Video Captures on the Nintendo Switch
In most cases, you can simply press the button System settings (the round gear icon) on your Switch home screen, then slide your finger up and select Manage dati. This will open a new screen where you can choose to transfer all the screenshots and videos from your Switch to your PC.
Once you’ve selected the screenshots and videos that you want to transfer, you can tap on the item Copy to PC via USB connection. The data will then be transferred to your PC and you’ll see a pop-up on your Switch display confirming the connection.
In addition to the above, you can also use a USB-C cable to transfer data between your Switch and your PC. This is an excellent option if you’re not a fan of HDMI and prefer to stick with USB. This will also allow you to play your Switch on a monitor that doesn’t have an HDMI output.
