How to Share Screen on Skype on Desktop and Mobile Apps

-

|

Introduction

What determines how you share screen on Skype depends on a number of factors:

  • Where you are making or receiving the Skype call from (desktop or mobile app)
  • If on desktop, whether your screen is reduced or full
  • Also on desktop, how you share screen on Skype will also depend on whether you are sharing from the main call Window or from the pop up Window
You can share screen on Skype whether you are on an audio or video call. The steps are the same. However, Skype screen sharing option is only available on Skype to Skype call. It is not available on Skype to Phone call.

This guide provides simplified steps to share screen on Skype from a mobile or desktop app.
