Moreover, we need to ‘turn on’ the “Send texts on all my Windows Devices” option in the settings app and this will be done on the handset under 'Messaging everywhere (Beta)'. For the PC, we have to select which phone to end messages through. The app syncs with all the connected Windows 10 devices letting you send and receive messages even without the handset.

Apart from enabling texting from our PC, the Windows 10 Mobile insider preview also removes the Skype integration from Windows Mobile messaging.
