    Step 5: Accept the Session on the Device

    You can select the device you want to extend remote support to and start the cast session. Once the end-user accepts the cast session request, you can see the remote device screen on your PC. The user should accept the request within one minute as the dashboard has a timeout. The cast session is launched in the edge browser and users can choose to share the entire device screen, the specific device screen or an application window.
