Share screen from the cloud; View participants from desktop


I can't figure out how to share a screen that's in our cloud on one monitor and view participants on the desktop on another monitor.

Hi @RJG 
I would configure your Zoom Desktop client to use Dual Monitors as shown in the attached picture. That way you can have content on one screen and the attendees on the second screen.

Hi Rob,

Thanks for the replay!  I have dual monitors set.   What happens when I share the screen to my monitor, my laptop monitor isn't changing.   The strange thing is that if I go back to the desktop, and the sharing is paused, and then I resume share, then it seems to work.
