I work remotely and so heavily use MS Teams to collaborate with my colleagues. When I am sharing screen, the video link to show the attendees is quite small. If the video if the person is in front of a computer that size is fine, but often, I am seeing a meeting room of people and the screen is too small to show their faces clearly to see reactions.
If I click on the video to make it larger, it makes it larger for me, but also for them so they are effectively looking at themselves. Awkward and distracting.
One work around is that I can share the program rather than the whole desktop but it isn't ideal if I'm moving between applications.
So the question - can I share screens but toggle between showing the attendees video and my screen without constantly having to turn the share screen on and off?

That's a shame because it really hinders collaboration in workshops. Especially where you use a presentation to raise a point, then return to discussion on each topic.
Thanks anyway for your response.

How are people in the meeting room viewing the Teams meeting? Are they using the Teams client, which is then displayed on a screen at front of room?
If this is the case, I'd recommend looking at a Teams Room System endpoint that will display content far end full screen, and should allow you to select video feeds to want to see from your client. More on Teams devices here: https://dmunified.com/2018/11/15/devices-for-microsoft-teams

Thanks everyone for your advice.
I'll certainly look into it if this becomes a larger issue. Admittedly, I was chasing a more straight forward fix, perhaps where I'd missed an obvious button or shortcut key to toggle.
I'll definitely look into these if I come into bigger issues, needing to host broader stakeholder meetings. Much appreciated.

Did You find a good solution? I'm having the same wish and need here.
Thanks in advance for sharing and have a nice day!

@Kirsty Clark Work around - Open windows Teams app, log into call - This is version 1. Open Chrome login to office 365, select Teams, select Use web app instead, open 2nd version of Teams (Now V1 and V2). Use V1 and V2 side by side or best on 2 screens and press F11 to hide side bars of chrome. Each version can be used independantly and in the same call, so view presentation in 1 and receipients or notes or whatever in the other.
Works well as a recipient with 2 screens as you get the person talking on 1 screen and the shared screen/ presentation on the other.
