Maximize Teams meeting shared content

When you are in a Teams meeting and someone is sharing content from their screen. In the new Teams meeting experience Teams meeting window open in a separate window and chat in a separate window and the sharing window size is really small.

We can turn off “New Teams meeting experience” but then we will have one single window for meeting and chat. though, we will have “Full Screen” option and can see large window when someone is sharing screen.

To turn off New Teams meeting experience go to Settings->General->Application -> Uncheck “Turn on new meeting experience”. This option is not available in new Teams versions.

Though, we can increase the sharing Teams window size in new meeting experience also.

To use Full Screen in sharing window.

Click on the “More Actions” (Three dots at the top of Teams Window) -> Click on “Full Screen”

Go to more actions again and click on Focus.

If the Window size is still small, you can also Zoom in the shared window.

Just press Ctrl key on keyboard + (rotate mouse wheel up) to increase Zoom in or rotate mouse wheel down to zoom out.
