Sharing Monitors & Programs
Want instant feedback and results on a project you are looking at on your computer? Use Lync's built-in screen-sharing or program sharing ability to display what you are seeing to your Lync contact(s).
To share your screen, from the conversation window click the screen icon and then under present click either primary monitor or secondary monitor (dual-monitor setup) to share your screen.
From a Windows machine only, programs can be shared in a similar way by instead clicking the Program button. The only difference is that by sharing programs, you only show the individual program that you select.
You can even let people take over control of your screen by clicking the give control button at the top of the shared screen and select the contact you wish to give control to. This will not take control away from you - simply allow your contact to control at the same time.
If at any point you want to revoke control rights, you can do so under the give control button and click take back control. Alternatively, hit the Ctrl + Alt + Space buttons together to revoke all control back to you. To stop sharing your screen or program, simply hit the stop presenting button at the top right of the shared screen.
