  • For help using Windows 10 please post in the Windows 10 forums on http://answers.microsoft.com . The Developing Universal Windows apps forum is for developers to discuss writing their own Windows apps.

    That said, Continuum isn't a feature to connect a phone to a PC. It is a feature to connect a monitor and keyboard to a phone and to use the phone itself as the PC. I believe it will require updated hardware that is not currently available on existing Windows Phones.

    There was a good talk at Build on Optimizing Windows Apps for Continuum that goes into this in more detail.
