How To Show Your Screen On Webex

Displaying your screen during Webex meetings can be a useful method for exchanging information, working with colleagues, or delivering presentations. As a frequent user of Webex for online gatherings and demonstrations, screen sharing has proven to be an indispensable tool. In this article, I will lead you through the steps of sharing your screen on Webex, offering thorough instructions and my personal insights throughout the process.

Step 1: Launching Webex

First, make sure you have the Webex application installed on your computer. If you don’t have it yet, you can download it from the official Webex website. Once the application is installed, launch it by double-clicking on the Webex icon.

Step 2: Joining or Starting a Meeting

Before you can start screen sharing, you need to join or start a meeting. If someone else has invited you to a meeting, simply click on the provided meeting link and follow the prompts to join. If you want to start your own meeting, click on the “Meetings” tab and select “Schedule a Meeting” or “Start a Meeting” depending on your preference.

Step 3: Accessing the Screen Sharing Feature

Once you are in a meeting, you will see a toolbar at the bottom of the Webex screen. Look for the “Share” button, which usually appears as an icon with an arrow pointing upwards. Click on the “Share” button to access the screen sharing options.

Step 4: Selecting the Screen to Share

After clicking on the “Share” button, a pop-up window will appear, showing you the available screens or applications that you can share. If you have multiple displays connected to your computer, you can choose to share a specific screen or share your entire desktop. Select the screen or application you want to share by clicking on it, and then click the “Share” button.

Step 5: Adjusting Screen Sharing Settings

Once you start sharing your screen, Webex provides you with various options to control how your screen is presented to others. You can choose to share the audio along with your screen, enable annotations for participants, or optimize the screen sharing quality. Take some time to explore these settings and customize them according to your needs.

Step 6: Ending Screen Sharing

When you are ready to stop sharing your screen, simply click on the “Stop Sharing” button, typically located in the Webex toolbar. This will return the meeting to the normal view, where you can continue discussing or participating without your screen being shared.
