Like said before, this is very easy and not much time consuming as well. At this time, you can use Team Viewer which is a free tool and works as a remote desktop software. Although, there are so many other remote desktop tools available for various platforms, yet most of the people often opt for Team Viewer because of its stability. Apart from sharing Android screen with PC users and vice versa, you can also record Android screen on PC with the help of Team Viewer.

However, the regular Team Viewer app for Android will not work this time because that app doesn’t assist users to view Android screen on PC.
