Step 1: Launch Microsoft Teams

To begin, open Microsoft Teams on your Mac. You can find the application in your Applications folder or by searching for it using Spotlight.

Step 2: Start or Join a Meeting

Once Teams is launched, start or join a meeting where you want to share your screen. You can either start a new meeting or join an existing one by clicking on the respective buttons in the app’s interface.

Step 3: Locate the Share Screen Icon

After you have joined a meeting, locate the toolbar at the bottom of the meeting window. In the toolbar, you will find several icons. Look for the Share Screen icon – it looks like a computer screen with an arrow pointing up.

Step 4: Click on Share Screen Icon

Select the Share Screen icon by clicking on it with your mouse or trackpad. This action will initiate the screen sharing process.

Step 5: Choose What to Share

A pop-up window will appear, giving you options to choose what you want to share. You can select either:

  • Your Entire Screen: This option will share everything that is visible on your Mac’s screen.
  • A Window: This option allows you to choose a specific application window to share. Only the contents of the selected window will be visible to other participants.
  • PowerPoint: If you have a PowerPoint presentation open, you can choose this option to share it directly.

Step 6: Start Screen Sharing

Once you have made your selection, click on the Share button in the pop-up window. Teams will now start sharing your screen with other meeting participants.

Step 7: Stop Screen Sharing

To stop sharing your screen, simply click on the Stop Sharing button located in the Teams toolbar at the top of your screen. Alternatively, you can press the Cmd + Shift + E keyboard shortcut to stop sharing.

Tips for a Smooth Screen Sharing Experience:

  • Clean up your desktop: Before sharing your screen, organize your desktop icons and close any unnecessary windows or applications to avoid distractions.
  • Select appropriate content: When sharing specific windows or applications, double-check that you are displaying the correct content before proceeding.
  • Avoid confidential information: Be cautious when sharing sensitive or confidential information on your screen. Make sure to hide or close any private content that should not be visible to others.
