Share content


From a Webex App space, click Screen Share .


Select how you want to Optimize your shared content from the drop-down menu:

  • Automatically optimize—Chooses the best optimization for your content type.
  • Optimize for text and images—Displays text and images in your shared content at the highest resolution and clarity possible.
  • Optimize for motion and video—The video plays back much more smoothly, as some resolution is sacrificed in favor of a higher frame rate to reduce lag and increase fluidity in your shared video, animation, or dynamic content.

Select Share your computer audio to allow others to hear your computer audio in addition to your microphone audio.

Mac only — Webex App needs an extension to share your computer audio. If you don't have this extension, then it automatically downloads when you click Share computer audio. You must have administrator permissions on your computer to install the extension.


Select the screen or application to share.

Hold Shift to select multiple applications. Everyone in the meeting will see one of the shared applications at a time only.


Preview what you're sharing at the top of the screen. Make sure you’re sharing only what you want and that everyone in the meeting can see it.


To show the preview after it disappears, go to the tab in the control bar at the top of the screen and click the down arrow.


While you're sharing, you can select the following:


If the share control bar is covering the shared content, drag the bar to any other edge of the screen.

  • Share screen to switch to another screen or application without needing to stop sharing first.
  • Annotate to mark-up a shared screen during a call or a meeting.
  • Pause to pause sharing your screen or application.
  • Resume to resume sharing your screen or application.
  • Give remote control to allow someone to control your screen. Just make sure you're sharing your whole screen and not just an application.

Click Stop when you're done sharing your screen.
