How to Show or Remove Cast Media Icon in Microsoft Edge Browser Toolbar

If you want to see your videos or photos from your computer to a bigger screen, you can do so through screencasting. It means that you can cast or mirror from your Windows 10 PC or Mac computer to your smart TV any content as long as it is compatible or enabled with the casting tool and connected to the same WiFi network.

Microsoft Edge browser allows users to cast content from their computer to their TVs or any other devices through Miracast or DLNA. Both are casting tools that you can use on your Microsoft Edge browser since it does not support Google’s Chromecast. You can use the built-in tool called “Cast media to device” to cast on any Miracast or DLNA enabled devices.


However, the “Cast media to device” icon does not show by default on your Microsoft Edge browser. Still, it shows when you need to cast a video or any content. Fortunately, you can choose to pin it on your browser’s toolbar, so it will always show even when you don’t use it.
