Screen Sharing Meeting Controls Should Auto-hide or minimize
On Screen Sharing Meeting Controls Should Auto-hide or minimize.
The current setup shows the incoming video of the presenter and the Meeting control hover over the presenters screen share causing some data to be covered by the controls.
just another plea to manipulate the banner that BLOCKS portions of presenter's screens.Make it smaller? Put it somewhere else? ANYTHING!!!
And yes please!!!!!!!!! super frustrating to try to take a screen shot of a presentation when the bar returns on screen.
This would be a great UX improvement.
With the increase in remote work and the need to share "snippets" of information versus revisiting a full recording the ability to take a quick snip without the control bar there has merit and provides clarity, fidelity of information and enabling full collaboration and remote work experience.

Agree, the control bar needs to auto-hide and re-appear when the mouse moves.
Bar gets in the way of the last line of every shared powerpoint.

Please allow for hiding meeting controls or allow for docking them so they aren't blocking the screen share.
I agree, the Teams control Task Bar is not auto hiding when click off the presentation during a call. This is a break which needs to be fixed.

Please come up with a way to manually hide or move the Meeting Controls. The controls are always blocking the person's face or content. I am usually taking notes too, which means moving my mouse which unhides the controls when they have been autohidden. It is insanely frustrating.

Seconding all the requests for a way to *manually* hide/minimize the control bar. Auto-hide doesn't seem to be enough - on multiple occasions, I've moved my mouse down to the video feed or even completely outside the window, kept it completely still for several seconds, and the control bar still stayed on screen blocking my view of the presentation.

Please give users a control to hide that meeting controls manually. The automatic auto-hide does not work adequately, meeting controls often hide data in presentations that needs to be seen, especially in layouts that place diagrams on top and text with numbers below.
This is one of my top complaints with using Teams for meetings. Most presentations are full screen of information and this blocks it. Occasionally I need to do a screenshot especially charts and this blocks the X-axis so I can not view units.

The control bar often serves to block display content and would be best if the bar could be placed on the side of the screen as a menu of options.
An intuitive minimize or 'hide controls' button would suffice so viewers can see the entire presentation.
Even just being able to move the controls to another part of the screen, like you can in S4B would be helpful.
I find that the controls will now block / hide content during presentations as well. Its distracting

We find it distracting. The placement of the buttons is certainly not essential to the function. Being able to move or minimize them would be great. In Google Hangouts the autohide at the footer.

There is little reason to displace the Teams Meeting controls to everyone on a meeting. When presenting a PowerPoint presentation, for example, the control window takes up screen space and can block content from showing.
Idea: move control to tab that's only visible when the presenter moves cursor (like Skype, same tab as Give Control option). Mockup here: https://pasteboard.co/HVwmE7j.jpg
