Can't share a "window" in MS Teams, only the whole screen

Occasional Visitor

Hi everyone! I am using MS Teams on my MacBook and since a couple of months I am only able to share the whole screen or use the PowerPoint Live option, however, the "window" sharing is not available for some reason. For example, I have an Excel file opened and I want to share it, but when I click on share "window" there is always one widow with the current call in Teams. Could anyone help me with this, please?

Hi @khudiiashanna ,


When you are trying to share, do you have the meeting window full screen? If you make the Teams meeting window not full screen, can you then see options to share windows? Let me know.
