I wish Microsoft would update TEAMS platform so a shared screen can be "locked" by the presenter.

I am a teaching virtually and when we take a 5 min. break i share my screen and put a timer on the student computers.

It would be great to be able to click on a box on that screen so it is "locked" on student screens, but still allows me to utilize the 5 min. break to manipulate tabs, programs, and documents on my computer so I can prepare for next part(s) of day.

Then, I could "unlock" my screen and resume teaching.

@ScottKauffman215 Hi, the feature is rolling out according to the roadmap.

*edit* just tested this myself, it's already in our tenant. Perhaps yours as well!
