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.
Thank you for your continued feedback. We have a feature on the backlog for popping out content, so that you can see one screen with the video gallery and one screen with the shared content. We will share an update as soon as one is available.

real full screen by default when sharing screen (as Zoom)
Ben Bruss commented
We need more shared screen real estate. We share roadway plans to discuss design options. We need to see more of the design on the screen to stay oriented and understand nearby structures.
Zoom is not the answer. The app / program already consumes less usable space with borders. Person ribbon much too big. It feels more oriented to chat, and traded off productivity. We need productivity options!

Is there a date for availability for this feature? I wasn't able to see it on the roadmap.
I agree. When teaching software remotely it would be better if students could see my screen full screen. They often complain that it's too small.

Also, if I am recording a meeting, i want to control WHICH shared video window is recorded, or at least have a specified Window be recorded full screen - 4 participants on screen, with one doing a walk through - recording shows them 1/4 screen.
hope that MSFT not just does the pop-out content for video gallery and shared content (presentation) only. but also the chat and participant list. good for multiple screen usage.
The ability to clearly view what's being shared is crucial when training others on systems especially now you have to train whilst socially distanced. Please bring back the full screen functionality as this is causing us no end of complaints
was this ever released? My co-workers are blind and I have monster screens. Thanks
When participating in a meeting and trying to view a presentation or someone's shared screen, having a full screen view option is critical. Too much of my laptop screen is taken by borders that fixed showing participants and other info ... this leaves a very small screen to view the presentation material ... this is a big problem with MS-Team, and your competitors have better options and solutions ... I am getting a lot of complains from our employees about this, and push to change platform. This should become a high priority to fix.

I agree with all the comments saying that the shared screens are too small to clearly read and a big problem. I have to put on reading glasses and get close to the screen to read the tiny print that is being displayed. Please fix the screen sharing so that everyone reading that shared screen and see it much better than Teams presently allows.
I really liked this feature, please bring it back.
Is there any update on screen resizing when sharing. The info on shared screens is way too small. There is so much wasted space with nothing on the top bar, is it really necessary to show all users when presenting. It is taking up valuable presentation space and time asking the presenter to zoom or enlarge if they even know how. Clear buttons or viewer enabled zoom would provide better presenting visibility.

This is a critical feature to have.
This is a definite HAVE TO HAVE!
this is really a disadvantage compared to other video conference systems

We need it!
Isn't the ability to share screens a fundamental feature of Teams? Screen sharing is useless when it is too small to read!
Seth Cohen commented
Zoom lets you put the gallery on one screen and the share on another screen, why can't we do this with teams?
I got this fancy new 27inch 2k monitor so its pretty lame that when someone is sharing their screen, the video feed of my team members is about a half inch tall and the rest of my screen is the excel document they're sharing.
Its not a good use of screen real estate.
Are you able to give us a sense of where in the backlog queue this feature currently sits? It's been more than two years since this was accepted by the feature team.
