If you have a “Google Chromecast Device“, did you know you can wirelessly project your computer screen to your TV? Follow the source link below to learn how easy this is to do…

Casting is a method of projecting or sending content wirelessly to a different screen such as your television or second monitor. Once you set up your Google Chromecast device, you can play any content from your mobile device or desktop on your TV or remote monitor, with the device becoming a remote control.

It saves you the painful hassles of hooking up your PC to your TV using an HDMI cable, which largely depends on the length of the cable. Plus, it allows you to mirror your entire screen or any browser tab on Google Chrome wirelessly with a few clicks so you can view static files like photos, display a presentation or view a website on a larger scale.
