New to chromecast on my windows 8.1 laptop I am unable to cast the desktop to my TV. Casting apps or the browser is fine. Any help would be appreciated.

Is your chromecast linked to you network?

You need the Home app to set it up

Hi, yes connected to network. Cannot download Home app to laptop, google states this is not necessary. I can cast browser but not desktop. The cast icon drop down menu only shows cast mirroring and not cast to desktop as per the google set up instructions.
