    Casting Photos to TV via Chromecast

    Hi Donald,



    Thank you for the reply.



    Try the steps listed below to cast Desktop screen:

    • Make sure the Chromecast is connected to the TV and both the devices are On.
    • Expand the Google Cast extension icon and select
      ‘Cast screen/window (experimental)’ option.
    • When prompted to cast entire screen,
      Accept and click on ‘Share’.
    • Open ‘Photos App’ to mirror photos on the PC.


    You may search for an app that can cast your media to any
    Google Cast device on your favorite search engine, and install it from the Store.



    Regards,

    (You know that Chromecast only works with the Chrome browser, right? I'm sure you already know that, but just in case ...)

    It's easy to cast a single photo from your Pictures folder, but if you want to cast more than a single photo you'll have to cast from the Google Photos website.

    Casting a single photo is easy because Chromecast can cast tabs. Simply open a photo in a tab and cast that tab.

    To cast from Google Photos:

    • On Chrome, go to photos.google.com.
    • Click View > Cast...
    • Select your Chromecast
    • To stop casting, click View > Cast... > Stop casting.

    I'm afraid that I don't understand your instructions. Chromecast is connected to TV and TV and Chromecast are ON. I don't know what is meant by "Expand the Google Chromecast extension icon, so here's what I did.

    1. Opened Chrome on PC.

    2. Turned on TV and ensured Chromecast dongle is ON.

    3. Set TV input source to Chromecast. Chromecast screen is displayed on TV.

    4. Clicked on the orange icon at top right of Chrome screen, then clicked on the Cast selection.

    5. Got the cast tab showing the TV, but nothing about a Cast screen/window option.

    6. Gave up.

    7. Started Chromecast app on PC. Shows TV as connected, but got nowhere regarding the Cast screen/window option there either.

    I must be doing something wrong. Please provide additional instructions.
