When sharing content in Teams meetings, you control what others can see. You can decide whether you need to show your entire desktop, or just a specific window. If someone is sharing their desktop or an application, you can request the presenter to give you control. You can decide to share your desktop, a window, a previously opened PowerPoint in Teams, a browser page or a whiteboard session.
To share your screen in a meeting, select Share in your meeting controls. Then, choose to present your entire desktop, a window, a PowerPoint file, or a whiteboard.
|Share your…||If you want to…||Great when…|
|Desktop||Show your entire screen, including notifications and other desktop activity||You need to seamlessly share multiple windows|
|Window||Show just one window, and no notifications or other desktop activity||You only need to show one thing and want to keep the rest of your screen to yourself|
|PowerPoint||Present a PowerPoint file others can interact with||You need to share a presentation and want others to be able to move through it at their own pace|
|Whiteboard||Collaborate with others in real time||You want to sketch with others and have your notes attached to the meeting|
When you’re done sharing, go to your meeting controls and select Stop sharing.
