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.

I also have a 38" (3840 x 1600) but I use it as secondary display, as I also use my laptop screen, and when I need to share I use the laptop's screen.
Still, would be a very nice feature, especially when presenting in PPT.
I need this
Agreed. This should be a feature, not only for the reasons mentioned above, but simply because I would like to share my powerpoint presentation while I use presenter view, something one cannot do if they do not only share a portion of their screen (to my knowledge)
Same issue here, especially, when you can't just show one app due to the need of presenting multiple apps/windows in one session. Quit sharing and sharing of the new app window is just not practical at all.
I have bought a monitor 32:9 from Samsung and there is no possibility for me to split it virtually (I don't want to use third-party programs) or to share only the half of my desktop. Critical issue

A workaround which works with any application is to use Display Fusion. Have a look here to see how to do it: https://www.displayfusion.com/Discussions/View/teams-ignoring-monitor-splits/?ID=8de0da4d-e58b-4465-b89c-ba8daa00f57d
Nevertheless, it would be very nice to have this as built in function.
Another vote for this feature, i neeeed this! I have a 5120x1440 px monitor from Samsung, and full homeworking

This request must change the priority to CRITICAL since almost half of the world is working from home due to Covid and we need to share the screen multiple times a day....
Here is another user working on 5120x1440 that can only show a window at a time....
David Kennedy commented
This is a workaround which might be useful to some people with widescreens in absence of this requested feature...
I have an ultrawide. I'm running at 5120x1440 and have to share my screen a lot in teams. How I've gotton around this problem is as follows:-
1. Create a powershell script as per https://superuser.com/questions/1493334/how-to-set-display-resolution-via-powershell-on-win10-pro to change to a resolution friendly with teams (e.g. 1980x1080)
2. Create another script to change your resolution back to your normal 4k/8k or whatever.
3. Keep both scripts on your desktop to quickly change your resolution down/up before/after you do a teams screen share.
If you don't want to use powershell there are probably other ways or things to download to quickly switch resolution...

we need this please.
This would be very useful feature and I keep on missing it even with normal screen. Especially important if you're using widescreen of course. Can't believe it hasn't been implemented yet even though so many competitors have it.

I recently just moved to a 4k display, and this feature is absolutely necessary. Switching specific applications just so end users can see what I am trying to share is very difficult.

I have a 2K display and others can barely see my fonts
Oh, wow... one year and this is still not closed/implemented.
Zoom has it...

+1 This would really be useful. I have a 40" 4K display, and I can't share the whole screen: Since other people rarely have such a large display, it's unreadable on the other people screens, with too tiny fonts. The only choice left to me now is to share a single application, which is VERY limiting.
This is a MUST HAVE
