  • How to connect Apple's AirPort Express to any router to make an AirPlay 2 streaming target...

    Immediately went online and bought a used Airport Express for 50 bucks from someone literally down the road from me. Setup took about 5 minutes. If you buy a used one, do this: Connect it to your router with an ethernet cable connecting it to the ethernet port with the arrows on the Express. Press the reset button on the Airport Express for a few seconds till the light starts blinking rapidly. Now it should come up in Airport Utility and you can set it up as a new device. Choose the option to join a Wifi and if you select the one your Mac is connected to, you don't even have to enter the wifi password. Then its smooth sailing using the instructions from the article. You can change the Airplay Name it shows separately from the Base Station Name, which is neat. Streaming to Apple TV and newly acquired Airport Express simultaneously worked straight away. Thank you to the exec at Apple who okayed this update and Appleinsider for letting me know :)

    Nice about copying the path! My all time favourite shortcut involving ALT, which I have never seen mentioned anywhere but use every day: When you use Cmd + Tab to switch to a different program, it wont show if it is minimised. But toggle to the program you want, let go of Tab, while still holding Cmd, then press Alt and let go - now the minimised program gets maximised. If you do it on the Finder it will open a new window for you. So handy and its become second nature to me now.
