First Things First
What is screen sharing?

How It Helps
The benefits of screen sharing
GoToMeeting screen sharing allows you to display your entire screen, multiple monitors or specific applications at any time. It’s an incredibly easy way to show your meeting attendees exactly what you’re talking about, keeping meetings on track and everyone on the same page. Quick team stand-ups, weekly status updates and in-depth project reviews – our customers use screen sharing for all types of meetings.
What Devices You Can Use
Supported screen sharing platforms
The GoToMeeting screen sharing app is available on Mac, Windows, iOS and Android devices. GoToMeeting can also run in your web browser – perfect for Chromebook and Linux users. On all platforms, GoToMeeting is an easy-to-join and simple-to-use solution that you can rely on.

Step by Step

Learn and watch how to use screen sharing.

1. Sign in to your GoToMeeting account and launch a meeting.

2. Click the Screen icon at the top of your Control Panel. This will share your screen with meeting attendees. They’ll only see your main monitor at first if you have more than one.
You can also be more specific about what your attendees see. You can choose to show a separate monitor or even a single application running on your computer.

3. Open the Screen Sharing tab.

4. Click the first drop-down menu to see a list of all available views. On Windows computers, some options may be listed as “Clean,” which means that your tabs and taskbars will not be displayed. The menu will also display minimized apps and give you the ability to show multiple monitors.

5. Hover your mouse over one of the options. GoToMeeting will show a preview of what your attendees will see. Once you’ve decided, click the option to start sharing it. Have more than one presenter lined up for your meeting? As the meeting organizer, you can easily let other attendees step up to the plate.

6. In the Screen Sharing tab, click the Change presenter drop-down menu. Then select an attendee from the list that opens. That attendee will be notified they are now the meeting presenter and asked to show their screen. Remember, you can take back presenter rights at any time during the meeting. Alternatively, you can give an attendee control of your screen while you’re still the meeting presenter.

7. Open the Keyboard & mouse drop-down and choose a name. This is helpful if an attendee wants to navigate on the content you’re sharing.
