share custom area of screen
Teams full desktop screen sharing is not usable when one person has a wide or high resolution screen. Others who do not have a similar monitor have no way to see or zoom adequately. It would be ideal to have the ability to share a custom area of the screen similar to what Zoom meetings currently allow. As wide screen and curved monitors become more popular, this will become more important to address.
In company office I have 2x 16:9 monitors
In home office I have 1x 21:9 monitor.
With 2x 16:9 monitors, Teams is much more usable, as I can share just one monitor.
This fact I did not realize when I bought my wide screen monitor for home office.
Would be great if Teams would allow to share a custom area of screen (for me it would be great to share the left or right half of the wide screen monitor).
MS, come on, changing design and some little features is cool, but we need this big time...
Same issue. I have a 32:9 Monitor and have to connect it as two monitors with 16:9 to use the screen sharing in any helpful way.
Fancy Zones integration would be awesome, but a simple way to select a custom area for sharing would help a lot
Moved to a ultrawide monitor for wfh and this is essential for productivity!

Come on Msoft, Zoom is kicking your butt here.
Same issue. Ultra wide screens are not useless for screensharing.
I have a super ultra wide... and no one I screen share with has a monitor this large.
As such I need to be able to share the "center" of my screen (I use FancyZones for 3 zones).
Having to share individual applications is a pain in the butt.
Mr T commented
yes, need this very badly
Since switching to an ultrawide monitor, I still need an extra screen to be able to run a proper demo or presentation for customers using Teams
An integration with Microsoft Power Toys so that you can choose to share a FanzyZone would be amazing!
It has become a real hurdle to share screens of high resolution and widescreens as well. Please accommodate the need asap. Thank you.
With the growing use of ultra wide screens rather than mulptiple screens having a dragable screen area to share would be ideal.
Yes this feature would be a great help! Options would be to share 1/2 or 1/4 of the screen, like Windows supports to arange applications on the desktop. Pre-defined sizes like 1920x1080 would also be nice.
+1, I have an ultrawide monitor too and this is really a need
+1 vote, using 32" monitor.

Agree. I’ve switched to an ultrawide monitor and sharing windows one at a time is time consuming
I really agree. I recently changed to ultrawide screen and I cannot take a full advantage of it due to this technical limitation of Teams.

I have an ultrawide 49inch monitor. I need this to share to my team half area of screen because other colleague doesn t have my screen ratio.
Totally agree, sharing a portion of the screen is essential for effective and easy screen sharing to an audience with a wide range of screen sizes.
