Computer desktop

If you use the ENGAGE app on a Windows or macOS device, you can share your desktop or a specific application that is open.

  1. Open your menu or tablet.

  2. On the Shared Screen page, select Desktop, and then select View desktop.

  3. Select the screen or application that you want to share.

  4. Optional: Turn on Share cursor to show your mouse cursor on the shared screen.

  5. Optional: If you use a Windows 11 computer, turn on Share sound to share your desktop or application audio through the shared screen. To prevent audio feedback, you can't share sound from the ENGAGE application.

  6. Select Share.

  7. If a warning appears that describes a 5 minute share limit. Select Continue. For more information about the share limit, see Sharing media.

To select a different screen or application after you start to share, select Change source in the upper left corner of the menu.

To cancel the desktop or application share, select Stop sharing in the upper-right corner of the Shared Screen page.

If you share your desktop for over one hour, a prompt is displayed to confirm if you want to continue sharing.
