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.
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
