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.
Please MS, this is soooo needed!
Definitely needed!! Check out this thread for more users asking for this functionality!!

This cannot be difficult to implement, most screen recorders have the facility to draw out a zone for capture and as has been pointed out Zoom already can do this. As Jean Luc Picard once (or twice) said "Make it so!"

Have a 49 inch widescreen and NEED this.

We need this ASAP, teaching online - and I am using workarounds which are not good at all. We need this implemented!
Must have feature. We should be able to draw a 1080p equivalent box in the screen and share that portion, so it behaves as a "virtual monitor"
+1 for this feature.

Please do this. I do have a 4k screen and my teammates cry loud when they need to see a 4k screen

I don't understand why it has not yet been implemented. Is it that hard ?

This is a dam must! Why this is taking som long! I work with a 43" monitor and I split my screen in 4 full screen. I don't have the option to share only one of these split. :-(
The following requests are similar!!!
Please implement, this is crucial when working with a widescreen monitor.
Please add this feature.
As a workaround, i use a streaming app like OBS Studio to share a virtual webcam but it's obviously not user friendly.

Please add this feature...
Just adding my voice to what's already been said here. This is an essential, especially as ultrawide screen monitors become more popular. Please prioritize this functionality!
Will Walton commented
Please add!! I'm sick of having to manually switch back down to a lower resolutions when screen sharing my ultrawide monitor..
I'm surprised I've not worn out my [WIN]+[i] keys changing resolution 3 or 4 times a day.

Indeed, much needed feature. Thanks for listening, MS !
Logan Marshall commented
definitely needed for the Ultra Wide and super Ultra Wide monitors. A well needed feature.
Thank you so much for posting
This is much needed!

I have a 49” ultra-wide monitor and it gets annoying to share an app at a time because the whole display sharing would be too big for my coworkers. This is a must-have feature.
