Screen Share automatically pausing with PPT Slides


Noticed yesterday when trying to share PPT that screen that screen-share automatically paused and would not restart sharing. Could not share any specific open screen [window] in Mac device. Could only share whole desktop. 

Anyone else experiencing that problem, or know how to fix? 

Submitted tech support request for assistance, but not sure if that will be answered.

Still having that problem today.

Thanks,  Rod

Hey, @Rod_Gordon,


Check out my response here, which another poster found helpful:


In that post is a link to a User Guide I wrote for my clients on how to do PowerPoint presentations on Zoom.  If you follow that "formula" process closely, experience shows it will work!  Practice alone or with one attendee until it comes natural.  Now I can talk a nervous presenter through it and as long as they know how to switch windows with the Alt-Tab key, they get it done. [And as a Zoom event "producer and technical director", I'm always set up with a copy of the presentation, ready to present it for the client.]
