Screen Sharing no longer works.....


Screenshot 2021-10-27 at 14.15.42.png

when I try to share screen, I get a message saying "You are restricted from screen sharing in this meeting". Does anyone know how to solve this? I have tried changing all the settings in my account ... to allow screen sharing for everyone everywhere! But still when someone joins my zoom, this message comes up.

Are you signed into the "host" account when joining the meeting?

If this is your meeting and you are signed in as the host and still seeing this error, confirm that the Screen Sharing setting in your profile is turned on.

Under Screen Sharing


I have just posted this same question - have you found a solution? My settings are as outlined in the previous post?


I am also encountering  the same issue.  Anyone have a solution to this? Thank you


I am also having the same issue. I'm the host and my settings are correct. Need to screen share for a training in two days. HELP,  PLEASE!!! 


I had this same problem on my 'pro' account.  This is how I solved it:
- go to
- (log in with your host credentials if needed)
- you should be on the 'Meeting' sub-tab
- in the 'In Meeting (Basic)' section, you'll see a setting called "Disable screen sharing when guests are in the meeting"
- toggle this setting to the left
