Sharing Desktop Zoom in and out capability
Participants should have the capability to zoom in on the user who's sharing their screen with the participants.
this functionality is available on Skype for business, it's called Actual Size / Windows Fit
We are actively working on developing a solution for this. I will update when this gets to testing/validation.
This is urgently required as most of usbrae on TEAMS now.

PLEASE add this functionality. If the screen being shared is a larger monitor from someone in the audience (and/or higher-rez), the viewers have a hard time seeing it with clarity. It appears too small and even blurry. Note: GoToMeeting handles this flawlessly. They have various zoom options, including "Actual Size", which is very nice. If the presenter has a larger screen than me and I choose Actual Size, it means I'll have to scroll a bit vertically and horizontally to see everything, which is a minor nuisance, but it's well worth it to have a crisp view of what's going on.
Yes, this would be a good feature.

First off, Suphatra responded with the words "THIS IS DONE" back in 11/2/18 and as of 1/2/19, she confirms it is still being developed (so that was a blatant lie). That was 7 months ago and this issue is STILL not resolved and is the MAIN REASON WHY WE ARE CONSIDERING DROPPING THIS GOD FORSAKEN APP WHICH IS YEARS BEHIND COMPETITION LIKE SLACK!!!!
Please escalate this one up. This is a major design flaw. Copy what WebEx does.

We need this functionality because we currently use SKYPE when sharing desktops to help end users. Without this functionality it is impossible to see what is happening on the users' desktop. You can use the CTRL+ and CTRL- but if a user has a smaller resolution, it is still not possible to see. Thank you for working on this. We plan to roll out MS Teams the end of this year.

This functionality is a great in WebEx, and if Teams were to offer it, it would help O365 Progam managers like myself encourage users to which properly from WebEx to Teams! Many still prefer WebEx which is frustration!
So I figured out if you press "Ctrl" and spin my mouse wheel... "Zoom" pops up. And if I 'decrease' the zoom, the screen share will actually grow. This does help.
But it is very confusing as you have to decrease the zoom to make the screen share bigger. I presume the zoom is for the entire Teams application as the people windows get smaller.
And how would anyone know to do those steps to zoom.
You need a button that clearly shows how to increase the zoom of the screen share!
You are touting this as an end all business solution...and for Teams! How could you not have this built in already?
I'd like variable zoom between Actual Size & Windows Fit. This, because the 1st can be too big (different screen size than the person sharing) and the 2nd can be too small.

On a call with Microsoft right now and I cannot zoom in to see the presentation. You need to get this FIXED.
Cisco Webex Meetings has had this feature forever
The lack of this functionality is discriminatory against those with accessibility requirements.
This was also logged at https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16933183-scalable-ui-zoom-feature. It claims it is complete but it did not work for me today.

+1 This is a frequent problem for me.
I use Teams on a high resolution screen and it's hard to read things. It'd be nice if the zoom in/out hotkeys worked in teams to enlarge text.

i also agree. Sometimes users has big monitors and then usually the shared screens are too small to see
