Meeting presenter must cancel current shared window before sharing another
When you are presenting multiple windows in SfB, you can switch between them as you need. In Teams meetings, you have to cancel the current share before you can share a different screen/window. Please make the behavior the same as for SfB.
This has been particularly frustrating, especially as a Designer at a company who uses Teams. As a Designer I'm expected to convey information visually and seamlessly. Having to constantly start/stop sharing disrupts the flow of working meetings where cross-departmental teams are trying to collaborate (and yes, I'm aware I could share my entire desktop, but I think we all know that it's much more safe to share specific windows, especially when NDA's etc. are involved). +1 for all the comments below, I echo that Microsoft "is losing the innovation challenge" with this one.
This is a no-brainer. Every other video conferencing software allows this, Zoom, Webex, and even Go-To Meeting. Makes presentations feel disjointed and off having to stop screen share, then re-share.
This is the exact reason I still use Zoom for content sharing. Microsoft is still trying to play catch up and is losing the innovation challenge.
Real nuisance not having this feature. Similarly there being no pause facility when recording a meeting.

I'm flabbergasted why this only has 47 votes... and even more why a feature that was in Skype YEARS ago is not included.

It's a bit ridiculous that this necessary functionality was completely overlooked while companies across the globe are moving to an all remote workforce. We have to rely on other 3rd party utilities in conferences. Teams is great, but is lacking some of the most obvious needs.

This should be a priority for Microsoft. It's such a basic requirement for any professional video conferencing software.
WebEx and Microsoft own Skype provide this feature. How can Teams , considered as an upgrade from Skype for Business, misses it !
At minimum you should be able to hit the share button again and pick another item to share window/screen.
This would be nice feature get also to Teams meetings. In Skype for Business you are able to share one or more programs or files, click Share Program, and then select a program or press Ctrl + program to choose more than one.
