How To Wirelessly Mirror An Entire Chromebook Display to Apple TV or Reflector 2

People often ask us why they can only mirror a single internet browser window (the Chrome browser) instead of the entire Chromebook screen. We've got good news: It is possible to mirror an entire Chromebook display to any Reflector-enabled device or Apple TV.

To mirror your Chromebook screen to a computer running Reflector 2:
