can't see the option to use powerpoint slides as a virtual background in Advanced Screen Sharing

Hi out there, 

I'm trying to use Powerpoint slides as a virtual background for a presentation bu can't see the option to allow me to do that in Advanced Screen Sharing.

I've downloaded the lastest desktop version, and checked my web profile and the desktop settings allow VB, and I thought I'd done it before, but now when I follow the instructions I can't see the option.

 

This is all I can see

Can someone suggest what I'm doing wrong?  Thanks in advance

Hi Tony,

 

Instead of clicking the little chevron next to the Share Screen button which I think you did here, click the Share Screen button itself.  From there, click the Advanced Button across the top, and then the option for PowerPoint as a Virtual Background.  Zoom will have you open a file, and you should be good to go after that.

Here's some Zoom links as well.

Hi, @TonyL 

How about, Click Share Screen button > Advance >PowerPoint as Virtual Background, without click "^".
