Google Chromecast Problem

Postby PeterJ » Fri Jul 19, 2019 3:48 pm

I have been happily casting the tabs on my laptop to my TV via a Google Chromecast dongle but recently it will only show a single tab.

Typically I would select Cast Desktop + Share and everything was there, I could tab from Youtube, Lightroom or Amazon or any other open tab showing on my laptop. This was a great way to see my photos on a very big screen, my TV.

Has anyone else had this problem and have they found a fix?

I have done all the updates, reboots and restarts etc. so am fairly sure it's a change that Google have made. The interweb isn't very helpful, although I have seen a comment that Google are no longer supporting laptops / PC's, just phones, so perhaps I'm stuck...

I am going to try an HDMI cable connection (laptop to TV), hopefully this will work but I would prefer Desktop / Sharing if I can find a solution. I wonder if an Amazon Firestick might be another solution??

Thankyou for your help
