Make sure you have a TV which supports Miracast
And the developer option is unlocked (it works only with android 9 with November patch and afterwards)
Now
1. Enable wireless display certification
2. Touch and hold cast on notification panel and it will open cast screen settings and option will appear

    Have both devices on same wifi. . Or need DLNA..  If its Windows 10 it already has screen sharing option built in.

    You have to open Connect app in Windows 10 then the laptop will be shown. There is no need that both devices should be on the same wifi but the must be connected to a wifi. If the laptop is not connected, it forms a hotspot-wifi connection, I guess.

    You don't need any developer option to use screen mirroring.
    If you wan't it just follow the steps.

    1) Long Press on Cast option(From Quick Settings Panel) make sure WIFI is ON(Don't close that app that is open by it).
    2) Then Press Cast option (In Quick Settings Panel) Let it search for sec.
    3) Then after few sec You will see that the app opened in first step that is running behind and there will be your TV or PC name displayed tap on it to connect device.

    Tested on Nokia 7 plus & old Pansonic TV that dosen't support Chromecast. 
    Don't Disagree without using it properly.

    This method also works. Thanks for sharing but I was unable to do this when my device was on Oreo.

    I Assume that this was added in November update or probably December update then.

    Works perfectly fine for me. Make sure your PC and the phone are on the same wifi or if there is no wifi, turn on wifi on your phone and don't connect to any network. When you open connect app in your PC, it forms a wifi hotspot and then the PC will be shown as a wireless display in cast settings of the phone. Your PC must have wifi hotspot support in order for this to work.

    Your device doesn't support wireless display, so maybe only some 3rd party may help you.
