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 not forgotten about this ask. We have a feature on the backlog for popping out content, so you will be able to 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
Please, restore "Full Screen Mode" functionality. It's a must have for developers when doing code reviews with remote teams !

This functionality is also present in Zoom. You need to integrate asap on Teams.

Why did Microsoft remove the full-screen mode with shared screens? It seems that Microsoft Teams developers are trying to push its users to use Zoom instead. It is a very strange way of engaging users.
When will ms Teams get this among other application standard feature?

This is important for workplace also, I keep having to manually change back to see the interpreter, and my industry includes a lot of presentations between multiple people to visually share what is being worked on, so I end up having to set up triple screen by using the computer app, website, and smartphone, and even then every time someone shares a screen, my pin of the interpreter view gets overriden and I spend a minute missing information while I adjust setting to unpin then repin and override that shared screen on one or two of the screens.

It is absolutely mandatory, to see participants on one screen and shared screen on the second screen.
Please give the ability to view the screen in full screen when its shared.
Previously it used to work in full screen.
This is very useful functionality that already existed in Skype. Please bring it to Teams!
Please-please-please give the ability to resize and move video windows (yours and others) and the shared presentation composition (size/where it sits) like Webex or Zoom. I miss both for this reason. It is so hard to attend video presentations without this.
An update occurred and a workaround for a period of time is when the screen share is up you could click on the video images and it would switch back to gallery mode and minimize the screen share and you could go back and forth. With an update the occurred overnight when someone is sharing their screen you can no longer click on the video to switch between video feeds and screen share.

This request was posted three years ago, but should be the first priority for Video Call products such as Skype/Zoom/Teams. Still not able to properly monitor your own video feed as it is sized as a stamp while I have three monitors to give full screen real estate to preview all outputs (screen share/video/return video). Call monitor (my own video preview) is lagging, it is mirrored without option to change it to what the other end is seeing (what do you think the purpose of a Call Monitor is, yes to see if the other end receives the proper image from your end). C'mon guys ... this should get first priority if you want to drop Skype4B.
TEACHERS NEED THIS ASAP!!

This is a no brainer. Just do it.:)
I teach students who could benefit from SEEING me as well! Please address this concern. Thank you.
I also miss the full screen mode for the video. now the video is very small when content is shared :(
Really keen for this. Having video chat on the laptop and content on the monitor would make for much more natural eye lines as people turn back towards their webcam to speak to people and then away to look at content. Far too much of video calls is spent looking at people from the side or under the chin.
Please, restore "Full Screen Mode" functionality.
During a meeting when a person is sharing his/her screen, the video becomes very small in bottom. Being able to pop-out the video in separate window from shared screen makes possible to see and talk TO person and see shared content.

I’d you’d like to be ADA compliant you’ll immediately work on this as it limits many user platforms - like Hospitals and schools from utilizing without possibly being hit with a lawsuit for non- ADA compliance.
Change, this is a violation of a human right.
