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.

would be a blessing for all high resolution display users...

Really miss this from other dektop sharing applications.
I have an 38" Dell Monitor and the same problem. I can either decrease the screen resolution and live with a really big font size while I share. Or I can use the PbP Mode from my Monitor. I can either just use one part of the big monitor or connect my notebook with 2 cables to the monitor (USB-C + DP/HDMI) and then use PbP to display the one cable on the left side and the other cable on the right side. It kind of works, but it is hacky and I would like to use my full screen instead of just one half of it.
I fully support the partial screen sharing feature which is proposed here. Shouldn't be that hard. Zoom can also do it.

This is a must feature for those who have ultra wide displays. Please make this possible.
Daniel Kraus commented
This feature would be highly needed. Maybe also in combination with "split screen" software products of the different display vendors or at least useable in combination with the windows 10 implemented arranged window modes.
Need this feature

totally back this request, I have a widescreen monitor and need to screenshare but can only share a single application at any one time. I use fancy zones to split my screen into zones although would be content with using windows zones if this could work.
Same here. 49" 5K monitor - this feature is VERY NEEDED
This is a feature available via Zoom, it would be greatly appreciated to have this feature here as Teams is currently a preferred application. This may change if this feature is not made available as it is critical to the development of our use.

This would help my poor colleagues a lot!
This feature would definitely be very helpful for professional remote presentations as wide screen monitors are more and more widely used.
They offer so much productivity gain e.g. when handling large Excel tables.
I recently bought an ultra wide screen, which I mainly use for work when I'm working remotely. Since Covid19, I'm working 100% from home, and even after Covid19 this will probably remain on 50%. Every day I have meetings where I'm sharing my screen. I'm switching a lot between programs during the presentation, whereas I want to show my audience several programs. Since a lot of my colleagues don't have a wide screen, I'm forced to use the PIP/PBP on my monitor, and only use 50% of my screen. This results in an awkward aspect ratio, and between meetings I always have to change the screen settings. Displaying a custom area of the screen i a must have for any professional video calling service, so please add this functionality.
Please implement this feature. I am using a 49" screen (5120 x 1440) and I prefere to share a custom area of the screen OR that the screen is splitted in left- and a right area.
Please add this functionality. In my opinion it is an absolutely must have which should be implemented as soon as possible.
I have a 4k 42'' screen and can only share single applications which is a mess.

I found an *awkward* workaround, which is using OBS to capture the region of the screen I want to share, and then sharing in Teams just the OBS window (full screen and with panels closed or out of the screen).
Please, add suport for this, it's super needed when you have an ultrawide or super ultra wide screen
Same as everyone else, I have a 21:9 3440*1440 at home and presenting my screen is always followed by comments like "Can't see anything when you share stuff, sorry"
This is also necessary for single monitor users and PowerPoint presentations - I can share the presentation while using the Presentation View and still see my notes.
I just switched to a 49" Dell and this is the last hurdle I am facing. It been nothing but a hot mess constantly switching back-and-forth between applications. Almost feel like I have to undock my laptop and use it when having to present. Hopefully MS fixes this, like soon!
