Hello @Fluvia06 ,

 

Go check your meeting settings in the Zoom Portal.  It looks like you have screen sharing disabled.

Hi Dan,

thank you for your helpful reply, it worked when you posted the solution but it is happening again now.

Apologies for the late reply.

 I am having exactly the same issue. I have screen sharing enabled, my setting looks exactly like the image you provided. I can share when I'm in a meeting alone but as soon as a participant joins I get that message.

Help...

Hello @Krista58 

 

Take a closer look at the setting just below the one in my red box...   that one prevents sharing when guests (unauthenticated users from your account) join a meeting.  Make sure that this setting is not enabled.  It may be the cause of your issue.

Hello @Dan_ZoomSE - thanks for replying, it isn't enabled.

Are you using Zoom on a personal computer or your work computer?  It is possible that your company has disabled this setting through Group Policy or installer settings.

 

If you sign in to the same Zoom account on a different computer or mobile device does it work?

I still get restricted on a different device. Any other suggestions?

The screen capture you shared of settings..  is that at the Account Level (under admin in the portal on left navigation) or the User level (under Personal in left navigation)?

It was in admin settings but I went to personal and it was disabled. I think it's now fixed! I didn't even know there were two settings as I'm the only user on this account.

Thank you so much for the help.

I'm on my personal computer and it's my personal account.

Let me see if it works on someone else's computer.
