Stop going full screen when participant shares screen.


I would like to STOP automatically going full screen when a participant (and host) shares their screen. I cannot find a setting for this. I am in a Zoom study group and participants ask questions that I readily know the answer to and do not need to discuss/see. When I am studying other content and listening in, my screen will automatically open Zoom full screen and show the whiteboard, throwing me out of my study materials. I need this to NOT happen, as it is disruptive while I am covering content that is new to me.


Please, someone, HELP.

You can configure the Share Screen settings in the Zoom Settings > Shared Screen, from there you can change the Window Size when screen sharing and maintain window size when screen-sharing which may help your experience with the content being shared and the window adjustment.
