screen sharing sucks
How is that the free version Skype screen sharing have no issues, at the same time the paid version (Teams) always have issues, even though the teams screen share is a wrapper on existing skype?
I need to collaborate with clients and the sharing experience is super slow when I'm using MS Teams on a Mac Pro with Bug Sur v. 11.1. The most acute problem is navigating on SharePoint (using Chrome Version 87.0.4280.141) while I'm sharing my screen. Every click is 2-3 seconds waiting.
I use Teams sharing with my helpdesk work
Skype is way better in screen sharing,
after user hits the mouse , I can't use the mouse anymore
I have a user at my organization who's calls always end when he is sharing his screen on teams, can anyone help with that?
Use OBS studio as your camera feeding TEAMS instead of using the screen sharing. You will be surprisingly impress by the results.
It is a bad choice of platform. Electron is always the culprit of a lot of things in background.

Still broken as of September 2020. Going into meetings is like rolling the dice for reliability.
Sometimes my students can't see anything when I share my screen, I need to stop the sharing then start sharing again to problem solved, but I have to do every time same thing. It is realy sucks! I have to use teams because of my school, please say something to the schools which use your software, teams not a remote classroom software!!
Two and a half years on from the original post and they still haven't fixed it.
If I need to screen share, I use Skype; no issues. Simple & reliable.

Because the free skype version was made and code by others. MS bought Skype from them in 2011 and than created Teams and mess up the code. Anything MS touches turns bad very quickly. Look at all the issues that Windows 10 has. MS steals code or buys code or borrows without giving credit and makes it worse since they have not idea what they are doing. I wish the old company had Skype still. It would have been greatly improved by those coders. Right now the code is stuck back in 2011 and running in currnent times. It is 9 years old code that has not been improved since than. MS has add garbage code to it and things it will become a diamond.
Screen sharing is confusing as many files that isn't open at the moment but perhaps was opened before shows up on the selection screen when we wish to chose a particular file for sharing. This has caused sharing of wrong files and waste time as we look through the long list
How can we share screen on a tablet if we are attendee in Microsoft team.
How can we request controle on Microsoft team if we are using a tablet
Had a Teams meeting with a colleague, who was presenting the features of a particular software tool. I was able to see all the dialog windows fully expect for a field lookup dialog windows of which I only saw the top half. Tried the same presentation on both Google Team and Zoom and was able to see the field lookup dialog window fully.
Microsoft needs to fix these screen sharing issues if it wants persons to adopt Teams for meeting/presentations.

Why don't we here anything from Microsoft regarding this problem. I think a lot of users have this problem, when sharing the screen everything goes dead.
We are start noticing this that each time you share screen its gone blank or with a black screen. and you have to wait for a while its comes up again. Which is never happen before.
Is Microsoft going to do something about this asap.

Even when running Teams on the local machine that is being shared, and connecting to that machine over RDP, there is a very noticeable lag that makes it nearly impossible to use at times. Which side of the RDP Teams is on makes no difference.

yes screen sharing doesn't work it shows wrong window whenever i try to share 1st time and on 2nd time ply screen is shared
We have been running into the same issue so I wanted to upvote this as well - we use Teams over RDP for intra-support processes and its quite annoying when you are presenting your screen and the mouse cursor is lagging behind (you end up clicking on the wrong things because the cursor is lagging behind).
Skype for Business didnt have much for it, but its screen presenting was worlds ahead of the performance Teams has to offer.
This is really annoying, I can't share my screen during a meeting because the computer gets overload, and I can see the process "System interruptions" running at 100% in the Task manager.
Microsoft must fix this issue ASAP.
I just tried it and got the impression that the other party could see it that clearly - I think they found it rendered it in a small area of the screen or something.

May 2020 started to notice major screen sharing latency issues.
