Screensharing is a useful feature that allows you and your participants to share application windows or your/their desktop. This article illustrates how to share a screen on Zoom.

 

Zoom allows screen sharing on a desktop, tablet and mobile devices running Zoom.

 

The host does not need to make someone else a presenter in order to share screen.

You can choose what you would like to share whether it's your whole "Desktop" or just an "individual application/window".

 

 

Note: You can also select to share your "computer's audio" when sharing a video clip such as YouTube or a locally stored video clip.

 

 

While you are sharing screen, you will have the option to use several different features. When you click on "Annotate" it will bring up another box with the features, "Draw, Text, Eraser ect."

Other participants can also Request Remote Control from the Options menu (right).
