Hide meeting attendees

Occasional Visitor

Is there a way to hide the meeting attendees? When watching a shared screen in a meeting the panel at the bottom which is lising the attendees takes up a lot of space

You can enter in full screen mode that hides everything except the screen being shared

Hi @Smeagol from what I gathered it is not possible to enable the full screen mode from the meeting popup window (what a shame!)


There are 3 workaround nonetheless (from worst to best):


1/ You can manually extend the window passed your screen limits so the participants toolbar doesn't display and your caller's screen appear wider. Do so by dragging up the upper limit of your window and recenter the window after


2/ You can press ctrl+"+" and ctrl+"-" or ctrl+mouse wheel to zoom in and out of your caller's screen presentation


3/ In Teams Setting, under 'General', you can disable the option called 'Turn on new meeting experience (New meetings and calls will open in separate windows. Requires restarting Teams.)'. Afterwards you will be able to toggle on the Full screen mode during your calls (amen!)



Hopefully they add the feature in seperate window mode soon. It shouldn't be hard!

@Smeagol Click on the ellipses (three dots ...) and click on Focus (Focus on the shared content). This hides the attendees and turns the screen into kind of Full screen mode.
