Notes

  • Multiple screen may be displayed at once although network performance may suffer.
  • While someone is sharing their screen their computer is displayed live (with some delay depending on your network speed).
  • There is a set of controls at the bottom of the screen share window allowing you to turn the computer’s microphone on or off, a quick switch menu (which pulls up other devices and lets you switch to another computer on the fly), a screenshot tool (allowing you to capture what’s being displayed), a full screen button and a button to close the window.
