SCRCPY is one of the most popular ways to view and control Android devices on Windows, Linux, and macOS PCs. It’s easy to set up, easy to use and works brilliantly in both wired and wireless modes. The only real issue with SCRCPY is the way options and commands are entered. As this requires the Command Prompt and a list of commands most people don’t or won’t take full advantage of what SCRCPY has to offer.
Thankfully, there are some alternatives to using SCRCPY exclusively from Command Prompt. These grant you a full graphical user interface with most of the core features and commands that people use within SCRCPY. This means you can simply click to enable or click to disable certain features within SCRCPY. The only downside is that not all command options are featured.
