I am using Teams on MacOS Mojave. I would like to share a Remote Desktop session but if I have this maximised, it doesn't appear in the list of windows available for sharing. This seems to be because a maximised window is not on "Desktop 1".

 

Is there a way to share this window *and* have it maximised?

 

Thanks.

Hi @lb483,

 

have you tried to pick it from the listed windows available for sharing when it is not maximized and then maximize it?

Hi Sven.

That did work, thanks. Strange that that's supported but pre-maximised isn't.

Good workaround though :-)

@lb483 great!

I think there will be some enhancements in the future maybe even on this specific part!

 

Sven
