If you want another meeting participant to change a file, help you present, or demonstrate something, you can give control to that person. You will both be in control of the sharing, and you can take back control anytime.
Note: When you’re sharing an app, only give control to people you trust. People you give control to may send commands that could affect your system or other apps. We've taken steps to prevent this but haven't tested every possible system customization.
On the sharing toolbar, select Give control.
Select the name of the person you want to give control to.
Teams sends a notification to that person to let them know you’re sharing control. While you’re sharing control, they can make selections, edits, and other modifications to the shared screen.
To take control back, select Take back control.
To take control while another person is sharing, select Request control. The person sharing can then approve or deny your request.
While you have control, you can make selections, edits, and other modifications to the shared screen.
When you’re done, select Release control to stop sharing control.
Zoom in to shared content
Want to get a better look at shared content?
Click and drag to see different areas.
And to zoom in or out, try the following:
Pinch in or out on your trackpad.
Use the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl+Plus sign and Ctrl+Minus sign.
Hold the Ctrl key and scroll with your mouse.
Note: Mac trackpads don't support zoom in meetings. If you're on a Mac, use one of the other options. If you're using Linux, giving and taking control of shared content isn't available at this time.
