Screenshare window is a thumbnail


I purchased a new Macbook Pro and signed into Zoom.  When I try to share my screen it appears as a tiny thumbnail and the people I try to share with see it as tiny as well (not readable).  I can not for the life of me figure out how to expand it.  


PLEASE HELP I AM DESPERATE... I have been searching for an answer for hours and I can't find anyone to speak to.

Hi, @BruceL,


This tiny “confidence monitor” only shows at the bottom of the floating green-red menu bar when sharing. If others are seeing if, it’s because you have enabled the setting to not hide Zoom windows when sharing — they are seeing what’s on your screen, being shared.


The tiny monitor can be hidden by pulling up on the bottom portion of it. It’s a new feature designed to help people see what is being shared. It’s a help to some people — confuses a lot more. 

i recommend that most people not set the option to show Zoom during during Screen Sharing.

Does this help?
