  1. Thank you for a very useful video, but my problem is still not solved. Whenever I share my screen it displays a full screen with a control bar. I would like to share the screen as a part of the Zoom screen. I do not see the switch screen icon full/reduce.

  2. I'm doing a scene from a play that takes place at night, in moonlight. I have a blue gel over the single light behind my monitor, and the camera does indeed look blue. But when I go to Zoom, it cancels out and "normalizes" the color. How do I keep the color as I see it on my camera?

  3. Thanks for the great video! Do you have any tips for playing engaging games on zoom? Things such as choosing a question and having a randomly selected person answer? Thanks again!

  4. I am trying to learn as much as I can about Zoom meetings as I will be hosting online game and need to look like I know what I'm doing. Mostly like to know how I can host to several participants while keeping them from conversing with me until I need to hear them tell me they have a winner. Not sure that can be done. Any advise? Thank you.

  5. Thank you for the video! Super informative! QUESTION: When sharing your screen, is there an option to remove the Picture in Picture (PIP) of the presenter or speaker? For example, when playing a video, I just want the video to be seen, not me as a PIP. Thank you in advance!

  6. Thanks, this is great! Zoom people can take advice from you. This is quick, clear, efficient training. I just watched 3 corporate Zoom videos, they leave out important information to successful. YOU ROCK!

  7. Hey, Scott… Michael Scott here.
    Great content, fabulous presentation, thanks, but since you raised the subject of "pet peeves" once or twice… here's one of mine.

    There's a thing in English grammar called an "article".
    There's a "definite article", the word "the", for identifying a specific thing: the table, the person, the car.
    And an "indefinite article", the word "a", for referring to non-specific items: a table, a person, a car.

    This word…a…is pronounced as it is in "have", or "ham". That's called the "short" sound of the vowel "a", as opposed to the long version, used in the words "bake" or "gate" (or tRump's favorite, "fake")

    Listen to your 15 minute presentation.
    In the first FIVE seconds you say "Sharing your screen in Zoom is AY must-know skill". And there are a couple of dozen more instances.

    Keep up the great content (AND smooth delivery), please, but watch those affectacious articles!

  8. I use screen share a great deal but have issues when I ask participants to record their breakout discussions on a flip chart, ie white board or file. Can’t seem to find file to share with everyone when back in main group.

  9. Ctrl S – one of the annoying things about zoom is the dead air while you do things. I'm all for creating a slicker performance. Also a reminder that participants can be prevented from annotating. It's amazing how seemingly intelligent people can think its ok to test out screen scribbling while a lecture is going on! I love my students to annotate, but it's not always appropriate.

  10. Thank you for this informative tutorial. So far, if a participant wanted to share their screen, the host thought they had to make them co-host. Now I know that the host can just go to Security and check Allow participants to share screen.
