In my office or working from home, I usually work with my laptop connected to an external monitor and use the dual monitor mode. From time to time, I need to connect to a meeting with several other people on-site, so I connect the laptop to the bigger screen in a meeting room. On these occasions, the dual screen mode is not suitable, obviously.
However, if I did not recall entering the settings screen and unchecking dual monitors mode before connecting to the meeting, the only possibility I found is to leave the meeting, uncheck it, and reenter, as this option does not affect the active meeting.
Is there an option to turn off dual monitors for the active meeting that I missed?
Using Zoom version: 5.13.11 (13434) on Windows 10.
I just tested this in a meeting during an active meeting without ending or leaving the meeting using the desktop client (Version: 5.14.6 (17822)) and was able to change the setting.

Hey, @Frank_TB. After changing the setting, did your current session change between single and dual screen modes? Last I tried (6-8 months ago) you could change the setting, but you still had to exit and rejoin to get the new setting active.
