AirParrot for Chrome OS supports Quick Connect Codes within Reflector. This is an easy way to display Chromebooks on another computer. This process is extremely handy in situations where networks don't support multicast traffic like Bonjour and mDNS.


Using Quick Connect Codes is easy. Follow this process to begin mirroring.


First you'll need to open Reflector and find your Quick Connect Code.

These steps vary based on Windows/Mac.


Mac

  • On a Mac, click the Reflector dock icon.
  • Then click the Window menu in the system toolbar.
  • Select "Quick Connect Code: xxxxxx"


Windows
  • On a Windows computer, right click the Reflector system tray icon
  • Select "Quick Connect Code: xxxxxx"

After doing this process, you'll be presented with a window that contains the Quick Connect Code. It was also shown previously in the menu, but opening the window allows for easier visibility and use.

Next, launch AirParrot for Chrome OS

Once you've launched AirParrot, you'll be prompted with the AirParrot window. This window usually contains a list of available devices. It will also contain a Quick Connect field.


Enter the Quick Connect Code from Reflector and press Connect.




Once you press connect, your Chromebook screen should appear on your computer. That's it! Enjoy!
