Mi PC Suite for Windows is a must have if you frequently connect your Xaiomi device to your computer for data management or for other purposes like flashing, etc. Traditional USB Cable only gives us a limited functionality over our device. If you simply just connect your device to your computer using a set of USB Cable then the three main options that you only get are Transfer Files, Transfer Photos(PTP) and Charging. But, with the help of Mi PC Suite, you can get the most out of your device.
Mi PC Suite helps us to efficiently manage our device from our personal computer like laptop or desktop running Windows. You could easily perform a number of tasks such doing a full phone backup, restoring the phone with a backup that you have already created, file transfer, data management, Mi Account sync and a lot more. If you want to do all this, then you will definitely need to use Mi PC Suite and not just the USB Cable.
At certain times, our computer/laptop might fail to detect our device that is connected to it via USB Cable. At this case, we will normally end up searching for USB Drivers of our computer. If you are one among them who faces this issue then Mi Suite is what you are looking for. You are not required to search and find the driver for USB. Mi PC Suite for Windows can do this all. We will discuss more on Mi PC Suite and it features later in this article, for now, let’s get started. Also, check How to Increase RAM in Android using SD Card

Screencast and Screenshot
One of the best features that are available in Mi PC Suite is that ability to Mirror Android Screen to Computer with little or no lag. I was using some other third party tools until I found this interesting option in Mi PC Suite. Let’s say that you wanted to cast the contents of your smartphone to a bigger screen like the monitor then you can easily do that with the help of Mi PC Suite. Whatever you do on the Mobile will be mirrored to your Computer screen with absolutely little lag. The response time is not that great but still okay.
Apart from that, it also comes with the ability to capture screenshots. It might not make sense to you. But, there are people who will be highly benefited by this feature like Tutorials creators and Explanation video creators.
If you are about to transfer files using the USB Cable then the file explorer simply just shows you the root directory of your device. But the File Manager in Mi PC Suite is much more flexible and convenient to use. Every file is categorized according to the file type and also shows you various data like the total storage capacity of SD Card and Onboard storage, amount of data used, etc. Apart from files, you can also easily transfer Contacts, too.

Or else you can also directly update within your phone, too.

In this situation, you can share your Computer Internet to your PHone through USB Cable via Mi PC Suite for Windows.
