    While it is not built into Windows 10 directly with a few apps and a bit of know how you can control your phone from Window 10! This would be super useful for managing notifications, responding to texts, and even controlling smart home appliances. In order for this to work a little bit of hackery is involved. The setup is actually a bit daunting so this will require a bit of patience. You will need tasker installed on your phone. The controls happen via Cortana voice commands. You will need to import your commands over to Android and set your default browser as Chrome. Head to the link below for full instructions.

    I think you have the wrong link on there, it leads me to an article about Google+.

    Interesting...I can see the advantage of using Cortana, but I don't want to go to Tasker(use Locale) and prefer Dolphin over Chrome.

    Besides, I'm "retiring" one of my laptops to a media center, and what I'll want to do is control my computer with my smartphone/tablet. I believe there are apps for that. Even better, when I upgrade my A/V receiver to a wireless model, then I'll control the whole thing with my phone/tablet (goodbye Logitech remote - you were great, but you're a hassle to set-up).

    This particular setup is for android. With a Windows Phone, it'll probably take a lot less setup to do similar things. That is, if they're smart about WP integration at all.

    Splashtop allows using the phone/tablet anywhere that has a data/Wi-Fi connection to control the desktop/laptop. When I had an iPad it was a must have when away from home. When I got a Tab I didn't need it anymore because I could mimic so many desktop actions on the tablet itself.
