Hi there! I’m Christa with Fixed Fee IT, Portland Oregon's best IT support. Welcome back to our series on How to use Microsoft Teams. Today’s tutorial walks through how to share a live screen or a specific window in a Microsoft Teams meeting.
If you are looking for a specific section of this video, hover over the progress bar and select the part you need. Otherwise, let’s get started…
To begin, we are going to start a call with our coworker, Caitlin.
From here, we are going to select the Share icon in the upper right hand side of our screen. Clicking on it will open our Share Options Panel.
In our Share Options Panel, you will see a choice between Screen and Window.
To share our computer screen with everyone in the Teams Meeting, we are going to click on Screen.
Now, everyone will be able to see what we are doing on that Screen of our computer.
This is a fantastic way to show how to access a website, give feedback, or even watch a tutorial together. Everyone will be able to see what you do on that screen of your computer until you stop sharing.
To stop sharing your screen, you are going to return to the upper right hand side of your screen, and click on the Stop Sharing button.
Sometimes, you only want to share one specific window rather than everything that you are working on or navigating to on your computer.
To share one specific window, we are going to go back to the Share Icon on the top right of the screen and click to open our Share Options Panel. From here we are going to select the Window button, and then choose which window we want to share.
Sharing only this window means that no matter what you do on your computer, the only thing the other people in the Teams Meeting will see is the window you selected.
To stop sharing, you are once again going to go to the upper right hand side of your screen and click on the stop sharing button.
And there you have it! Now you should be able to share your screen as well as a specific window to your Teams video meetings.
