How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

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.

    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.

        The problem is that it is not that clear. After using webex for 15+ years I struggle with Teams how I can quickly share an application. In webex you see an icon at each right top corner of a window that you can click to quickly share another app. In Teams I now have to stop sharing, than click share again, followed by clicking another window.
        This must be easier.

        This one is a blocker for completely replacing other products like WebEx or Chime. When I'm sharing, sometimes things come across the screen I don't want to be presenting. For example, sometimes someone will say something that pops up in a notification that should not be seen by the people I'm presenting to. Another example is when I need to bring up an Excel sheet with sensitive information on it.

        Teams is another good product from MS, But in collaboration sharing screen shot must be there, please bring it asap if not exists already

        Same here, I have a 40" 4k screen with 4 full 1080p quadrants, the lack of this option that is on Skype for business makes Teams unusable for me as a audio call tool.
