"all monitors" desktop sharing option like Skype client
"All monitors" desktop sharing option missing from Teams
Desktop sharing in Teams includes sharing 1 monitor OR sharing 1 app... in Skype for business client there is also sharing "All Monitors". When used, a presenter with two monitors will present a view showing both monitors in one window. The viewer can see both of the presenters screens in the one window. They can view this on one monitor or stretch this window across two monitors to make it much bigger and easier to see.
Thanks for providing the feedback. This feature is in our backlog. We’ll update when we have more details to share.
Please have this support to share two screens in Teams ASAP. This is a critical feature which exists in Skype Business, but not in Teams, preventing the switchover.

This is definitely a feature that makes reduces Teams viability in the current hybrid/remote work work. My company has Teams but more and more people have been scheduling meetings with Zoom due to this feature missing from Teams.
It would be extremely beneficial for training purposes for the person I’m training to see both of my monitors. They can then not only see how my work space is set up, but also how I move through it regularly..... not with everything constantly moving in and out of the one monitor screen. This should DEFINITELY be something added soon! Skype is far superior in this area unfortunately.
Having not used Teams for a while, I have been using Zoom and Skype for Business which both have the function to view a presenters presentation screen on one of my monitors and the camera gallery on my other monitor, I was really surprised that Teams doesn't have this function. It is critical as some presentations are too small to see otherwise.
I feel like this should be moved to the forefront. Microsoft continues to ignore what is necessary for businesses

Support for multiple monitor or at least Dual screen is crucial for us.
Josh Walsh commented
Dual Screens should be non negotiable for video conferencing.
I would like to have the option that in an meeting one person can share the monitor and a second person can also share one. So if you have to monitors you see on your first monitor what person one is sharing and on the second what person 2 is sharing.
We need this for remote support, but could also use the ability to interact with UAC prompts.

This function is really needed in this covid world now! Please work on it asap.

Multi screen wanted urgently!
SCT User commented
Very keen to see multiple screen share. Please include a signal to show which screen the presenter has their mouse on (or active application) at any particular time and a way for those with only 1 screen to actively switch to the screen the presenter has their mouse on (or active application) .
looks like it has been 2.5 years since the post and over a year since it was added to the backlog... any update would be appreciated as this is something that causes major headaches every day with all our meetings now being virtual.
This is a blocker issue for me for switching over from Zoom to Microsoft Teams. I'm using the MacOS version of Teams.
My main use case: when others are presenting/sharing their screen, I want to see that window on my (much larger) side monitor, while seeing participants, chat windows, etc. on my laptop screen (where I use the front camera for interaction). I don't want to have to move the entire Teams window to my side monitor for that.
David Swan commented
Agree with this add. Critical for virtual work now more than ever
Seb Gore commented
Absolutely cannot understand how the developers did not implement this from day 1. Please, please get this addressed as soon as possible. Thanks.
Major feature missing - it is causing a slowdown in migration from Skype for business to teams
Ian Rule commented
There is a workaround shared by Nidhi1591 here - But to do the workaround you have to follow below steps:
1. Screen 1 : Join your meeting from desktop application
2. Screen 2 : Open teams web application and join same meeting from there
This way in 2 screen you can see choose video in one and presentation in other. Make sure to not join with audio/video in one of the screen.
