I have installed the latest chrome browser 41. But don't see any icon to add extinctions.  When I downloaded the chromecast from google.com/chromecast/setup
It gve me an error message "No chomecasts found" .  This is on my Desktop computer right next to my TV with the chromecast.  I have an iPad and iPhone and I can stream youtube Pandora to the TV with the chromecast. It works fine. Just not on my computer. I just bought the chromecast at best buy. Does it have the dongle function to mirror the computer. Do you think that could be the problem? Please help

Thank you
