    • screen share scaling

      Mac client does not properly scale screen sharing content. While viewing a shared screen on Mac, the Mac Desktop Teams client overlay obscures part of the content being shared with no ability to scale or otherwise fit the shared content to the viewable frame.

      • Share pointer while screen sharing

        TeamViewer screen sharing has a nice feature to share pointer. So when other meeting participants wants to show the presenter something on screen, the presenter can see where they pointing. It's really useful feature.

          This request has been accepted by the feature team and is in the queue.

          It isn’t the neatest, but as a workaround you can request control in order to do this.

          I’ll keep you posted as more information becomes available.

          • screen sharing sucks

            How is that the free version Skype screen sharing have no issues, at the same time the paid version (Teams) always have issues, even though the teams screen share is a wrapper on existing skype?

            • screen share not displaying correctly

              Screen Share - bug1 - sharing screen 1 or 2 only displays a small section of screen, viewer is not able to scroll or resize window.

              Setup of presenter is two screens - screen1 laptop on the bottom, and screen2(main) external screen on top. When you share screen1 it will only show one small section.

              bug2 - Other issue is that if you share the top screen (2) the red active box doesn't not just stay on the top screen and bleeds into a portion of the laptop screen - image included. If you change…

              • Video screen size when sharing screen

                When video chatting and sharing your screen, the video window is very small and you can't resize it.

                When you are in an active meeting and have video and screen sharing enable:
                1. Able to resize video preview
                2. Able to use multiple monitors with video on one and screen share on the other.
                3. Able to move the video around the screen freely.
                4. Overlay video on full screen screenshare.
                5. Able to freely resize your split screen with video and screenshare.

                • When sharing screen, only the first tab of my web browser is shared even if I am sharing an entire screen

                  I am finding that screen-sharing in Teams is very hit or miss. Half the time, it won't share anything. Other times, it won't for example update the view if I change the tab of the browser I'm sharing. I can be working in a tab and all is sharing fine. When I switch to another tab in the browser, those viewing my screen continue to see the original tab instead. This is when using the "Share Screen #" or "Share Desktop" options, not one of the more focused screen-sharing options.

                    • Screen Share and capture

                      Could you please add the screen share without a audio/video call just like Lync in Teams? And screen capture is much useful in these instant message tools.

                          UPDATE: I have confirmed with the feature team that this is, in fact, functioning as you expect – you can share your entire desktop or a specific window directly from a private chat session, without starting audio or video. The mute microphone button is enabled so you are able to easily add audio by “unmuting”, but we realize this is causing confusion. We are working on further experience improvements.

                          Please feel free to respond to teamsml@microsoft.com if you are still seeing issues.

                          Thanks,
                          Alex

                          • Screen Sharing like Skype

                            It would be great if you could use the screen sharing functionality like what is used in Skype. I used screen sharing for training purposes with my offshore team. So even having the capability to record training sessions would be good so agents can keep it for future reference would be awesome!

                                    • ios disable screen share feed

                                      I attend a lot of Teams meetings when I'm driving. Skype iOS app has/had ability to disable the screen share when someone else is presenting. Teams app needs this too. When driving, can't watch the screen and it's an unwanted distraction. I mostly listen in and chime in when needed during the call. Team has the option currently to ONLY disable VIDEO feed, but screen share feed still comes through. This also eats up much more cellular data, so wish to have option to disable the screen share feed to save cell data when unable to be on wifi.

                                      • Enable sharing system sounds during screen-sharing

                                        We've been using Skype so far to review projects internally, and liked to have the option to share system sounds while screen-sharing (some of our projects are videos with voiceovers).

                                        Would it be possible to add the same functionality in Teams?

                                        • share a specific application/window in screen sharing

                                          When sharing "screen", add an option to share specific application rather than share the whole screen. I've got a 34" ultrawide and sharing the whole screen with someone using a small 13" laptop screen is untenable.

                                            we have this!  ·  Warren responded

                                            When you start a meeting and click the share button you are presented the option to share your whole desktop or choose a specific application to share.
