1. To share your screen, sign in at www.gotomeeting.com and launch a meeting on your desktop. Prefer browser-based screen sharing? Open Chrome and start your meeting at app.gotomeeting.com instead.
2. Click the Screen icon at the top of your toolbar. This will share your screen with meeting attendees. If you’re using the browser web app, you’ll first be directed through a short, one-time process to set up a screen-sharing extension.
You can also be more specific about what your attendees see. Show a separate monitor or even a single application running on your computer. The web app will ask upfront which to show, while the desktop app lets you choose from a menu.
3. If you’re using the desktop app, open the Screen Sharing tab.
4. Click the first drop-down menu to see a list of all available views. On Windows PCs, 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 Attendee tab, click the name of whoever would like to screen share and select Make Presenter. 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.
If you’re using the desktop app, you can also 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.
