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.
For the separate feature ask for full screen option, please upvote and comment at https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103/suggestions/41277121.
For split screen camera and desktop, please upvote and comment at https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103/suggestions/37118773.
For full screen for self video, please upvote and comment at https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103/suggestions/38322247.

Added my +1 for the true full screen mode (still not available in April 2021). Ability to have 1:1 screen content sharing without blank space is essential. Even a small zoom-out causes blur due to the resizing. It is not conducive to text and pixel-level sharing. Or any sharing, period.
I have multiple monitors, and I want to use one of the screens to see and interact with my Teams colleagues while presenting with other screens. I use powerpoint to present fullscreen and share that screen, i use another screen to read my notes, and I use the third screen for Teams. I set this all up, but as soon as Teams is instructed to share my powerpoint screen, Teams disappears and i have to hunt around for it to bring it back to the screen I had it on.Very annoying! When I bring it back, it has been changed to a reduced size mode and i then need to expand it to see my colleagues again. Everytime i present, i have to do this multi-step process to counteract some pretty bad assumptions about how multi-monitored people present using Teams.
all we want is a full-screen option when sharing content and when sharing just the video feed

This is a must! and I believe one of the reasons to keep using S4B, where you can easily pop out the video and use 1 screen for content and the other for video.

Please place the gallery view when a screen is shared at the top and not the bottom of the screen (or make it configurable) as webcams are almost exclusively placed above and not below the screen - this would improve the sense of eye contact not to mention the impression that people are looking at their keyboard when actually looking at the people they are talking to...

allow attendees at meeting to choose how much space a shared presentation occupies on their screen, so that they can see other attendees in larger windows, if desired.

It's like you want to drive our users to Zoom. Please have a real Full Screen without the attendees at the bottom and menu bar at the top. Look how long this has been a request. You can do it if you use the browser version. How hard can it be. When you move the mouse / click, show the menu, otherwise auto-hide. This is a deal breaker for meetings we have.
The video and user icons show up on top of the bottom right corner of screen share in the mobile Teams app. This overlaps and obscures the slides. There is no option to reposition or remove these windows.
Please add a true full screen functionality back into Microsoft teams. This would be a very big help!
Proper full screen by default please for video/screensharing, and smaller borders everywhere in general please

Please add this feature as now in the new feature where the meeting opens in new chat the middle screen cannot be made full size. Can only add focus mode. Which does not hit the bezels/bar on the top which is very annoying when viewing any presentations.

How is that not a thing?
Just to see the screen differences with default settings, with focus feature and focus and full-screen feature ...

This is unbelievable.
It would be valuable to have presentation fill entire screen while adding the ability to pop-out chat, participant, or other windows for multi-monitor setup.
On small displays (laptops) it is impossible to read the shared screen. Please make a real fullscreen, button-taskbar can slide in (as it is in common use of other Microsoft products e.g. Skype)
With the features 'Focus' together with 'Full Screen' mode, the shared screen is still ~20% smaller as it could be.
Normally my counterparts are using the same screen size (company laptops).
real full screen by default when sharing screen (as Zoom)
We have to use Zoom in order for the presentation screen to be really shown in FULL screen. Microsoft, please enhance on this as we every day have so many meetings in MS Teams. Now, we have to use Zoom.

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!
It is really strange they did not think about it right from the beginning. Please make a real fullscreen Microsoft.
