Why am I unable to connect to my many  Chromecast devices from windows 11, like i can from my android phone. I have netflix installed on my windows 11 laptop but there is no option to project the vision to to my Chromecast. I know you can use Chrome and cast a screen but this is cumbersome and not the best picture. It works perfectly on android and wondering why its not the same on windows 11.

Windows 11 is an entirely seperate operating system than android or chromeOS so there will be limitations.   The best way to cast is using Chrome and casting from Netflix, you should still be able to cast the video and not just the browser/screen as long as you are on the same wireless network.   As an alternative, you can ask your Google assistant to play a title from Netflix on your Chromecast, have you tried that?
