Take your meetings and brainstorming sessions to the next level and create a great collaboration experience for your team by using Miro on an interactive display.
About using Miro on an interactive display
Miro can be used on interactive displays in two ways:
- By connecting a PC to the interactive display
- On the interactive display itself if it has a built-in PC (e.g. MSFT Surface Hub 2S)
Please note that Miro is resource-consuming when using it on interactive displays with big screens, so make sure your PC fits recommended requirements:
- CPU: 2,8 GHz (4 cores/8 threads)
- GPU: NVidia Geforce 10 series or higher, Intel Gen 12, AMD Ryzen Zen 2 based (3rd generation) or higher
- RAM Memory: 16 GB (DDR4)
Use Miro on any Windows 10-based display with a supported Microsoft Edge browser (version 85 and above), or Google Chrome browser (version 85 and above), or with the Miro app for interactive displays. We also recommend using a stylus or digital pen with Miro for easier drawing or writing on the screen.

💡 Miro can be used on different types of devices - you can also use Miro on desktop (browser and app), tablet, and mobile.
⚠️ Please note that Miro only supports one touchpoint per device.
⚠️ Some interactive displays may have performance issues on big boards. We’re working on improving Miro experience on these devices.
✏️ If you use a digital pen when using Miro, you are automatically switched to the digital pen mode. This mode activates palm rejection and the ability to navigate with finger. To disable this mode (to start drawing with fingers), reload the board or do not use the digital pen for 10 minutes.
How to set up Miro on an interactive display
- If you are in a conference room with a display, make sure that the device is one of the following in order to launch Miro:
- A Windows 10-based display with a supported Microsoft Edge browser (version 85 and above) or Google Chrome browser (version 85 and above)
- A Cisco Webex Board
- You can launch Miro in the browser by visiting miro.com/login
- If you are using a Cisco Webex Board, there are two ways you can set up the Miro app - directly from Control Hub or within the UI Extensions editor
- Once you open Miro, log in using your credentials
- You can also use quick sign in to launch any Miro board from your phone or laptop to start collaborating in seconds
- Once the Miro board is open on the screen, you can go ahead and start the session/meeting
- After the session is over, make sure to log out of your personal Miro profile on the interactive display to allow the next user to be able to sign in and protect your profile data
Miro toolbar on interactive displays
When you work in Miro on an interactive display, the creation toolbar is placed at the bottom of the screen. By default, there’ll be only 5 most used tools: sticky notes, shapes, text, lines, pen. Other tools will be in the More apps section.
✏️ If you work in a browser on a 4K+ touch device and don't use Quick sign-in to log in to Miro, the toolbar is placed for you on the left side of the screen.

How to deploy Miro to multiple devices in your organization
Miro offers two versions of the Microsoft Installer that IT Administrators can use to deploy Miro to multiple users across thousands of machines. One version has auto-updates, which means your users will get the updated app version as soon as it’s published. You can also choose to download without auto-updates, which means you have more control over what version of Miro your employees are using.
- Windows MSI 64 bit with auto-updates - download the app
- Windows MSI 64 bit without auto-updates - download the app
- Miro will be installed to %LOCALAPPDATA%. While the Miro Machine-Wide Installer is installed machine-wide, Miro itself is not. Miro app will be installed only upon user login
- Miro will be installed if it has not been previously installed by the user. The deployment tool looks for the folder “%LOCALAPPDATA%/RealtimeBoard”. If it detects traces of previous installations, the app will not be installed
