How do I disable full screen mode when I start sharing my screen?


Whenever I screen share (or anyone else), zoom gets into full screen mode. How do I turn it off? I hate it:D

Hi @Gerdy thank you for your post here on the Zoom Community! This is an easy fix, it's a client setting you just need to uncheck basically. This support article walks through changing settings for your different computer operating system type: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/201362623


To disable automatic full screen when viewing a shared screen, adjust the Window size when screen sharing behavior in your desktop client settings.
