Good afternoon,

 

When a group member shares their screen I am unable to bring the mouse over the taskbar. This is quite a hindrance in situations where I may need to select an open window or click the Windows Start button. Has anyone else encountered this and is there a solution?

 

Thank you,

 

Ray

Same problem using lastest Teams version.
On Windows 10 1809
Task bar innaccessible (Start menu, pinned items, tray)
I can only use program already started. Cannot start any new program since Taskbar hidden or overlayed by Teams program

@Raymond Satterfield , did anyone ever give you a work around for this annoying issue?

I am amazed no one looked at this yet in Microsoft. Screen share misses the taskbar, which makes it impossible for true screen sharing and allowing others to take over the complete screen and run tasks.@Raymond Satterfield

Not the case for us at all as long as we share the desktop...  Your share is scoped to what you share -- an app, desktop, whatever...

@Michael Creel It was the case months ago even on a desktop share but has been resolved and is much more reliable now.

My solution is to unlock the taskbar and make it taller...

It's not really that the taskbar is not shared, it's the bottom of the screen...
