Apple TV won’t Airplay – “Where is your Apple TV?”

When Apple TV’s run updates, they will not Airplay automatically as usual.

A screen will appear asking where your Apple TV is, which makes it look like it went back to factory settings. However, this is simply a data-gathering prompt from Apple.

To get the screen to disappear, click on one of the options (Ex: “living room”) and you will be able to Airplay as usual.

Transferring Ownership of Google files

If your company uses Google Drive, you may need to gain access to the entirety an employee’s files if they leave the company. In order to do this, you will need to change the ownership of that employee’s files using the following steps:

  1. Log into your company’s Google Admin Console
  2. Click Apps -> G Suite -> Drive and Docs
  3. Click Transfer ownership. Fill in the emails of the old owner and new owner.
  4. Click Transfer Files.
  5. The old owner will still be able to view the files until you suspend their account.

If you only need to transfer ownership of singular files, follow these steps:

  1. Note that only the owner of the file can transfer the ownership
  2. Highlight the file or document you would like to transfer ownership of
  3. Click share -> advanced
  4. Click the dropdown menu next to the name of the person who you would like to be owner -> click “is owner.”

Unfortunately, Google Drive does not currently support transferring whole folders and subfolders, so ownership of singular files must be transferred individually.

Two Ways to Create a Shared Folder in Google

Two ways to create a shared folder in Google

  • Create a server  account (Ex: “Company Name” Server”) – this is best if you need to share subfolders.
  1. Transfer folder ownership as you migrate
  2. Always transfer documents before removing a user, as the user’s documents will disappear.
  3. Have the employees add the shared folder to My Drive so it shows up in Google Filestream
  • Use the Team drives – best for simple departmental sharing
  1. The advantage of team drives is that you do not need to transfer ownership if someone leaves.
  2. However, you cannot import folders, and you cannot share subfolders. (You must share each document individually).
