Recent update made things more difficult: screen sharing and breakout room tool


It seems with every update Zoom does, not much is improved. In fact, it is quite the opposite. With this recent update (literally from yesterday to today), now when I share my screen with my students, I can no longer see the students on the side panel as I could before. Has anyone found a workaround for this? I like to see the students expressions if they are on camera to see if the lesson is registering. I also like to see who is still in the class without having to click anywhere else.


One other small thing I am finding to be the opposite of an improvement is the breakout room tool. In the past, when I clicked on the breakout room box, I could stretch it out vertically so that I could see all the participant groups at once. Now I cannot do this. I did not have a picture for this attached, but I think you get the idea. 


I would greatly appreciate if anyone could inform me of any tips. Thank you in advance.
