Disable your VPN 

Chromecast is built not to communicate with an active  VPN or a proxy server. If you have these enabled, you won’t be able to use the cast option.

To disable VPN, go to your System Settings.

 Select Network and Internet, and then press VPN


Update Google Chrome

Chrome releases update regularly, so it is hard to not miss. You should often update your Chrome even when you are not facing any difficulty. If the Chromecast is not visible due to a Chrome bug, updating it should fix it

In Chrome, click on the three-dotted lines, and select Help.

From the sub-menu, click on About Google Chrome.

This action will automatically make Google Chrome check for any updates and will install them. Restart your browser and check if the cast option is visible.

Disable Extensions

Extensions in Google Chrome add a lot of value to your browsing experience. However, it is not abnormal for these third-party add-ons to encounter glitches. This usually occurs when you have an incompatible or outdated extension installed. Try disabling all your extensions temporarily and see if this helps you to rectify the Chromecast issue.

In your Google Chrome, type chrome://extensions, and press Enter.

Disable them one by one.

Once you are done, restart your browser and check if the cast option appears.

Reset your Chromecast

Locate the button on the back of your Chromecast and press and hold it for a long time. You’ll be able to tell the gadget has been reset when the LED light starts to blink. After that, repeat the setup procedure, making sure your PC and Chromecast are both linked to the same Wi-Fi network.
