Windows 10 Cast to does not work

Before upgrading from Win8.1 to Win10 I could play video files from my computer to the Xbox. Now, Play to has been changed to Cast to and it does nothing when I select it.

It's not an Xbox problem, it's a Win10 problem. It doesn't connect to the XOne through the Cast to unless you go through the Movies and TV app first. After that the Right click menu will work. It's something related to device initiation. It doesn't even TRY connecting if you haven't gone through Movies and TV once.

And I found someone else who had the same thing happen also using a laptop only trying to cast to a TV.

I know it is not much help but I would ask my question in this forum (dedicated to Windows 10 Xbox support):
