This tutorial will show you how to share your screen during a conference. When you share your screen, participants in the conference can see everything displayed on your monitor. This tool is great for showing participants how to do something on their computers.

Step 1

Select Share My Screen in the middle of the window.

Step 4

To make your screen take up the entire screen of your participants' computer, select Make Share Pod Full Screen for Attendees in the bottom right corner. To have your monitor appear just in the large gray space within Adobe Connect, leave this option unselected.

A small window will appear on your screen. The Share tab gives you the options to stop sharing your screen and pause and annotate your screen. Select the full-screen button in the top right corner to reopen the full-sized Adobe Connect window.

If you selected the Pause and Annotate button, a new window will open with an image of what your desktop had open when you selected the Pause button. Use the tools on the left to annotate the image. These tools are the same as those used when you share a whiteboard. Go to [insert tutorial here] to learn about these tools.

Once you have finished adding annotations, select Resume in the top right corner.

Select the Attendees tab to view the other members of the participants and their statuses. Select a participant's name to start a private chat, request a screen share, or change roles. If you request a screen share, the conference will display the participant's screen instead of yours.

If a participant requests control, you can relinquish control of the screen share to the participant so that the participant can perform actions on your shared screen.
