You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our blogs. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

To share your screen like this, first choose to share it in Teams as normal:

Click on the icon to share your screen as usual.


Now choose to stand out!

Choose whether you want to save your window or just a single screen and proceed as normal!
