  1. Skype For Business Web App Mac Cant Screen Share Windows 10
  1. Aug 24, 2015  Screen sharing is a feature of corporate calls that many of us have come to expect. If you need to share what you’re seeing for the purposes of support, collaboration, or really any reason, the steps to do so in Skype for Business are easy. Check out the video above, or: At the bottom of the call window, click the monitor icon.
  2. Most features like share-screen and seamless video connectivity is good. Additionally, can just make a video call and add members to the group video/audio call, is a good feature. Cons: Cannot view all members at the same time in free Skype, in Skype Business, can still see all the participants, but still, cannot arrange the members and also.

There can be 3-4 different companies joining that meeting, and our company is the only company who can't see the shared screen, so the hoster's setup seems to be just fine. The problem is on our end.
