I had a Teams meeting with multiple people (~20-30 people) who joined. For the meeting (I created), I shared my screen and chose the PowerPoint file that I had opened to share. Everyone could see the PowerPoint File, but when I entered Presentation Mode it still showed the main PowerPoint editor screen on everyone else's screen but mine. I was in Presentation mode, but no one else was. I had practiced this multiple times with other people previous to the meeting and they all saw the presentation mode with out any issues. Do you have any idea why this wasn't working for me with this meeting?

Hi,

Could be a one of an issue with the Microsoft PowerPoint and Teams.

Since the last wherein the things have Worked have you made any changes in the application? Have you recently added a Dual Monitor recently?

I have the same experience and wondering whether this due to lack of RAM.

@rileyj6

 

This is normal behavior, because you select Teams to show the PowerPoint editor screen. If you only have one screen you might be using the option to share the whole screen the last times? Than everyone will see the exact same thing as you do.

 

If you just want to share the presentation you would have to start the presentation, go back to Teams, share the presentation, and go back to the presentation.

 

There is also the new presenters view coming up to Teams, this might be something you want to take a look into!
