Allow presenters to hide or move the toolbar that appears at the top of the screen.
The toolbar that appears at the top of the screen while presenting does not auto-hide consistently, obstructing browser tabs and anything else that occupies the top area of the screen. This happens very frequently and results in having to move the entire browser window just to change to a different browser tab.
Suggestion: Add an option for the presenter to hide or move this toolbar for the duration of the current meeting or presentation, and also an option in Teams settings to hide the toolbar by default.
Not being able to use the top of the screen effectively adds another pain point to video calls. Fixing this would certainly help maximize screen sharing effectiveness.

This bar has been disruptive to me during calls, also the red border around the screen when screen sharing has prevented me from seeing which applications are open in my taskbar
This is great idea! A definite quality of life improvement as we are spending more time in video calls.

This feature would be incredibly helpful. The bar not reliably disappearing gets in the way of a lot of top-of-screen interactions.
