Using a Chromecast

  1. Make sure your projector is set to the HDMI input.
  2. The Chromecast homescreen will appear, displaying it’s name.
    1. The Chromecast is named by the room it’s located in (usually a number, letter, or combination).
  3. On your computer, open Google Chrome browser, right-click anywhere on the page, and select “Cast…”.
  4. At the top of the small window that appears (next to “Cast to”), click on the arrow and choose either “Cast tab” or “Cast desktop”.
    1. “Cast tab” will cast only the current tab, even if you switch to a new tab or window.
    2. “Cast desktop” will cast everything on the screen, including when you change windows, tabs, and even programs.
  5. On the list of Chromecast devices, scroll down until you find the one labelled with your room number/letter, and click on it.
