Tech Tip: Free Screen Sharing in Skype
Skype has recently added a screen-sharing feature which makes it easy to share what’s on your computer screen with someone miles away. The person with whom you are sharing your screen can see your screen in either full or partial screen view. You can continue talking via Skype while sharing your screen.


To share your Skype screen:(Macintosh & Windows) During a Skype call, go to the Call menu in the Skype menu bar and selectShare screen.

Screen sharing is available in Skype 2.8 for Mac and Skype 4.1 for Windows. If the person you are calling is on an older version of Skype, they can view your screen but can't share their own.
