Ok, here's some help.......I've been trying to solve this problem since Christmas!  First. there is NO password, it is negotioted between tv and computer and you cant' see it.  It's also different each time.  You need to follow my next instruction EXACTLY, unless you don't mind ponying up 50 bucks for a MS wireless adapter. (hope this ok to post part #...."p3q-00001"). 

 

If u prefer to frustrate yourself this method I invented will work 75% of the time.......disconnect tv from internet.  Restart it, leave it on screenshare  listen mode? take your pick, one is just as good as the other. 

 

Reboot computer, and disconnect that from internet temporarily.  (router is not needed for screenshare at this point)  Right click on desktop, left click on display settings, then left click connect to wireless display, when "lgwebostv" shows up left click on it.  After connection is established computer screen will be frozen on tv..........but this is good b/c now the original connection has been made and a "lgwebostv" icon should have been made that you can see in settings>connected devices on your computer.  If not, try again.  On the tv, settings>network>wifi direct IS USELESS, don't wast your time but it may work if "accept" shows up just for the purpose of establishing this original handshake.

 

Next, reboot tv first then computer, connected to internet, tv not connected.  Now desktop>rt click>lt click disp settings>lt click conn to wireless display, then click on "lgwebostv".

 

I noticed when the dots start spinning, and the cancel buttton on tv turns gray you will connect.  If it stays red, it won't  This feature is the most unreliable and vexing thing I have ever experienced. Like rubber handle on a toilet!  LOL

 

Lg software engineers really need to send a fix!  Still want to try this?  Be prepared to do this over and over till it works each time you need it.  Good luck!  :)

I should add that if you click on the square white icon next to the time on the bottom right of your desktop, settings and connect can be accessed from there......i have had better luck doing things as above for some reason however.  Add a device only asks you for a password or times out when tv stops waiting but you can try it for the initial handshake, it worked once for me.  Really screwy, huh?

Thankyou for posting this.  I was wondering if it was just me or what.  I had figured out that all on-screen help, asking for password, etc was totally outdated and not updated for windows 10, and had given-up on ever doing screen share wirelessly.   I have cat-5 going from router to LG so my thinking is/was that I would need to unhook that, connect LG using wi-fi, then try smart share....  Forget it... too much trouble.   A work-around for me is that I have a 25' hdmi cable hooked to LG and just sitting coiled-up on floor, then then I want to show pictures (or anything) from laptop I just connect hdmi to laptop like an external monitor.... not perfect but super easy and works great.  Seems to me like LG just stopped updating webOS 2.0 and is now working on the next thing.   Lack of apps and especially flash, makes me wish i had got a dumb tv with a dedicated computer for it instead of a "smart" tv.  

 

Picture and viewing angles on my 65EF9500(Jan2016 Mexico) are wonderful though, which is how i ended up choosing this tv.in the first place.

 

Yes, in Win10, that little icon that looks like a cartoon caption in lower right next to time/date is the easy way to get to all settings.

 

If anyone knows of a forum for users of webOS 2.0 please let me know.  Perhaps LG will announce 2.0 to 3.0 upgrade soon and all will good?   I really hope so.

Screen share using WebOS 2 from a Windows 10 computer does not work - it will never wok. Do not waist your time. 

 

If you need to 'share' your computer screen on the LG TV, hook your computer up to it directly and use the LG TV as a monitor.

This works:

nirudha robertclaypool10 months ago

In Windows 10 get the context menu for the desktop (right click or two finger tap on the desktop background) and select "Display Settings". You should see a "Connect to a wireless display" option in the window that pops up. When you click on this you should see any wireless display devices the computer detects and selecting one should show you the connect option.

This question is about Screen Share but a couple of people say "Smart Share". Is there something called Screen Share?

 

The reason I ask is that the name "Screen Share" implies that (only) the screen is shared and "Smart Share" implies that other things are shared, possibly including the screen.

 

I know that people often use terminology that is highly misleading and that does not communicate what the name refers to. Since that is true, it is critical that people use the correct name.

Yes, screen share is not smart share;  anyway, get a chromecast and use chrome to cast the screen.
