Share Your Screen

At any time during a LoopUp meeting you can share your screen.


To Share Your Screen for the First Time:

  • Click the ‘Share My Screen’ button in the center of your screen
  • Follow the 1 minute set-up instructions (you’ll only have to do this the first time)
  • A popup box will appear to say your screen is shared and a green band will appear around your screen to show what is being shared with guests

To Change What’s Being Shared

  • The green band shows you what you’re sharing with others. You can either share your whole screen, or just part of it.
  • To move the green band, click the top edge and drag it anywhere on your screen (or onto another monitor if you have multiple monitors).
  • To resize the green band, click and drag any of the other edges.

To Change Who Is Sharing Their Screen

  • By default, guests can click the ‘Share My Screen’ button to request permission to share their screen.
  • To change this setting, click the Options icon at the bottom right-hand side of the meeting, select ‘Guest Screen Sharing’ and choose from ‘Guests can share’, ‘Guests ask permission’, or ‘Guests can’t share’.

To Stop Screen Sharing

  • If you are sharing, go back to your meeting and click the red ‘Stop Sharing’ button in the center of the screen.
  • If your guest is sharing, go back to your meeting and click ‘Stop current guest sharing’ in the center of the screen.
  • Also, if you end the meeting, the screen sharing session will stop automatically.
