Cast (share screen) from Windows 10 to Roku streaming stick on tv

I usually use the chromecast device plugged into the tv's hdmi port, but I also have a roku streaming stick plugged into an hdmi port.

Sometimes my router's 2.4GHz connection craps out.

I discovered this about my Windows 10 computer

  1. Make sure you've switched your tv to the correct hdmi
  2. Click on the notifications area (to the right of the date in the bottom right corner of my windows display). It will show a rectangular window
  3. Click "connect" down at the bottom of the window
  4. You should see roku stick listed there. Click on it to connect
  5. You might see a message on your tv coming from roku to "accept" or "always accept." Click on one of those.
