Damien Wilde. While we are still a little far away from using an Android phone — or indeed any other smartphone — as a roving mobile office or desktop, the Samsung DeX docking station offers a great taste. You initially had to buy a docking station to use your smartphone as your makeshift desktop machine on a monitor or display. There was no explicit confirmation from Samsung that these devices would receive support for the mobile desktop hybrid but it appears that now you can plug your S9 and Note 9 right into your PC and run the not-quite-a-desktop replacement. Just install on your PC, plug in your device and fire the newly installed app up. If you were curious about installing DeX on your Mac or Windows machine you can find the official download links below:. The only caveat is that this still requires a USB-C cable connection to your PC, but really does give you much more flexibility of using DeX as a piece of software running on your machine rather than a standalone OS. While a wired connection is still needed, it gives us hope that Samsung might eventually be able to rid of us of the wire entirely and connect wirelessly. You can already manage text messages, calls, and notifications on your PC with the Link to Windows feature that is new on the Note Given just how similar the internals are on the Note 10 and S10, hopefully, Samsung can add support soon. For those of you that want to be able to use DeX while running PC or Mac apps at the same time, this is quite a nice little addition to the system. FTC: We use income earning auto affiliate links.

How to use Samsung’s DeX mode on the Galaxy Note 10, S10, and more
However, in device manager on Windows the phone appears with an exclamation next to it. Have tried to update the driver, install the driver separately, cleared the registry etc But still can't get it to work. Are you using a Dex Cable or a Dex Station? What version of Windows are you using on your computer? I am using windows 10 on a desktop. There seems to be some kind of conflict and the driver is either not getting installed or is somehow in conflict with something else. Tried this on a friend's laptop, using the same cable and it worked first time round. That laptop is a 5 year old machine. My desktop is hardly 2 years old, so it can't be that either. Some kind of conflict or corruption is taking place as the device is detected in device manager but has an asterisk next to it and behaves as though no driver is installed. However, dex works on the laptop fine, even after the mods, so its not the mods, the cable or the phone. I have tried uninstalling everything, including ADB drivers, samsung drivers and dex. But nothing seems to be working. When installing the samsung driver from the website. It launches UAC and when you say yes, the pointer shows the system is busy for a few seconds and that's it. There's no dialog box or confirmation. Everytime you pluge phone in, Dex prompts that the driver is not installed and proceeds to install the driver. Would really like to use Dex on my own desktop as it will provide me with many benefits. In fact, one of the reasons I bought the device is to use dex on windows, after having used dex plenty before on older devices. It's an issue on my particular windows desktop, which I likely feel is a driver problem or some kind of conflict. The last resort is to do a fresh install of windows, but my desktop computer is my primary work computer and, I'd rather avoid doing a fresh install unless its absolutely necessary.
