Sharing screen with one participant but not the rest


Is there a way to share your screen with one participant. Hypothetically say I am doing a trial and I want to show the witness the document but not the jury. Then after the witness confirms the document show it to the rest of the participants. Would there be a way to do so?

Thanks in advance.

Zoom screen sharing goes out to everyone.


I know taking a witness to a Breakout Room probably wouldn't satisfy court proceedings (I was a small claims hearing officer for a few years), but that would be one way to do it. 


Another -- assuming it's a PDF file and PDF file attachments ion chat were enabled in the host's account -- you could drop it in chat only to the witness as an attachment... but this would require the witness to download it, open it up, read/scan it, then respond.  Hardly worth the effort, in my opinion.
