Taking Control of the Shared Screen

When you participate in a meeting that involves screen sharing, you need permission to present before you can control the shared screen. You cannot take control unless the sharing host allows other participants to control the screen.

Note Your system administrator might not allow other participants to control a shared screen.

Follow these steps to control a shared screen:

  1. Ensure that the participant who is sharing the screen has allowed other participants to control the screen.
  2. Verify that you have permission to present. You should be able to see the Start Presenting and Add Slides buttons. "You have all permissions" should also appear at the bottom of the participants list. You might need to ask the chair to give you permission to present.
  3. Click Take Control in the screen-sharing toolbar. When you use the mouse or keyboard, everyone except the person who is sharing the screen sees your initials beside the cursor.
