If you have a Chromecast device connected to a TV, make sure your TV is turned on, input is set to HDMI1 (or HDMI2) and you see the identifier "Chromecastxxxx" and a verification code on the TV.

Then turn on your Windows computer, move near to your TV, and perform the following steps to set up and manage the Chromecast device:

1. Launch "Safari" Web browser and go to "chromecast.com/setup". Follow the instruction to download chromecastinstaller.exe.

2. Once downloading is complete, run "chromecastinstaller.exe" to read Privacy and Terms. Then tap "Accept" to continue. You should see a message saying "Let's set up your Chromecast" with a Chromecast picture displayed.

3. Tap "Next". You should see the Chromecast verification code displayed. It should match the same code displayed on the TV.

4. Tap "That’s my code". You should see the "Select Your Region" screen.

5. You can change the identifier and tap "Next" You should see the "Select a network ..." screen.

6. Tap "Choose a Wi-Fi network" to connect the Chromecast device to your Wi-Fi router.

7. When the connection is done, you should see a message saying "Sweet! You're ready to cast".

8. Your TV should be displaying a Chromecast backdrop photo downloaded from Google.
