Imagine being able to share your entire desktop or one program during a video conference. Skype lets you do exactly that during Skype for Business meetings, calls, or instant messaging (IM) conversations. It’s quite simple:

  • Go to the bottom of the conversation window, then scroll to the presentation icon, and find the present tab. Once you’ve found that, you’re able to:
  • Click desktop to share the content on your desktop
  • Click program then select the specific programs or files

This lets you share your desktop so everyone can view your programs and/or files OR share one program at a time, depending on what’s needed during the video conference. At the top of the screen, you’re able to use the sharing toolbar to stop sharing or allow participants to take control.

In addition, you’re able to choose to share one or more monitors, depending on what’s needed. If you have more than one monitor, the present tab will give you options of which to share.
