Unable to cast from Windows 10 to Chromecast

Scenario

All computers cannot locate the Chromecast, whether connected via wifi or via cable.
In detail :
All smartphones connected to wifi can see the Chromecast and transmit.
All computers connected to wifi or cable can ping the Chromecast but cannot find it in transmission.
Some computers are in domain (win 10 pro) or out of domain (win 10 home).
Disabling the firewall on a single computer does not change the result.
Disabling the firewall from the router does not change the result.

In some computer networks, Chrome on Windows 10 cannot locate the Chromecast to cast.

Solution

On your computer, open Chrome and type

chrome: // flags /

You have to enable 2 special flags. The flags are hundreds so you will have to look for them. As pictured:

media-router-cast-allow-all-ips  (Connect to Cast devices on all IP addresses)

Have the Media Router connect to Cast devices on all IP addresses, not just RFC1918/RFC4193 private addresses. – Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS

cast-media-route-provider

Enables the native Cast Media Route Provider implementation to be used instead of the implementation in the Media Router component extension. – Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS

 

Press the lower right “Relaunch” button to save the new settings. At this point, after Chrome has restarted, you can cast to the Chromecast.

Windows 10 scanning software

When you buy a scanner, you are provided with scanning software from the manufacturer. This program, generally to be installed, is very often feature-rich. This richness translates into a very complex interface, perhaps in some cases not clear to users who do not need to make particular choices but simply “push a button” and start scanning.

In all cases where the manufacturer’s scanning program is “oversized” you can choose to use the scanning software included in your Windows 10.

Windows 10 contains document scanning software. This scanning software initially detects the presence of an installed scanner and allows its use.

You can launch the software by typing “wiaacmgr.exe” in the search bar.

If you want to make it even more convenient to use you can go to the System32 directory, find the software file, go over it with the mouse and push the right button; select “Send to Desktop”. You will create a shortcut for the software on the desktop.

C:\Windows\System32\wiaacmgr.exe

apple id: Cannot Reset Security Questions We don’t have sufficient information to reset your security questions

Scenario: You want to activate 2-factor authentication on your apple id. The system fails and apple support tells you that you have forgotten your security questions. Support suggests you to access https://iforgot.apple.com/ to restore them but when trying to do it the error appears: “Cannot Reset Security Questions We don’t have sufficient information to reset your security questions”

Solution

Usually security questions are requested by the apple device in pairs. There are 5 possible questions and perhaps you are sure of the answer of at least one. Go to https://appleid.apple.com/ and when asked about security questions, choose that you have forgotten them. Now there will be the option to choose a single security question; choose the one you are sure of, answer and update the new security questions.

This procedure was reported to us by the apple support: do not do it if you are not in the same situation

Mail server dedicato

La posta elettronica è cambiata molto negli anni: da semplice mezzo di comunicazione è diventato il nostro “contenitore” preferito di informazioni. Conserviamo tutto nella nostra cassetta postale: comunicazioni, contratti ordini, fatture, etc.

Queste informazioni devono sempre essere accessibili ovunque noi siamo: non possiamo più vederle solo dalla nostra postazione di lavoro ma anche attraverso il nostro smartphone.

La Mecdata propone l’uso di un mail server esterno sempre aggiornato per risolvere i vostri problemi di comunicazione aziendale. Un mail server proposto con la formula “pay per use” : paghi solo le caselle email che attivi; gli alias sono gratuiti. Non dovrete preoccuparvi della gestione del server fisico o dell’aggiornamento dell’antispam o dei nuovi protocolli di comunicazione.

  • Dimensione cassetta postale : 8gb
  • Controllo dimensione cassetta postale autonomo : Lo spazio utilizzato può essere controllato in tempo reale dall’utente tramite la Webmail, oppure tramite il proprio client email configurato con IMAP (se supporta la visualizzazione della quota, come ad esempio Thunderbird).
  • Accesso : imap, pop3, webmail
  • SMTP dedicato
  • Alias illimitati gratuiti
  • Calendario condiviso : calendario condivisibile con tutti i software che supportano il protocollo caldav (es ios).
