wifi icon Share PowerPoint & View Zoom Participants
Below are instructions for viewing a PowerPoint presentation along with a larger image of the Zoom participants. Two monitors are required. If you only have one monitor, go to the Share Content page on the left.
View Student Video Larger when Screen Sharing (Multiple Monitors Required)
If you would rather view students larger than what is available with the floating video panel, the setting show your Zoom windows while screen sharing can be helpful. Your Zoom call will remain its normal size on one monitor while your content being shared will be on the other.
To activate this option, it will first need to be enabled within your account settings on https://zoom.usu.edu
Click on Settings within the left navigation
Find Show Zoom windows during screen share and toggle it on
This is found within the In Meeting (Basic) section.
Select the settings (gear) icon in the top right corner underneath your profile picture (or initials)
Open the Share Screen tab on the left
Check the box next to Show my Zoom windows to other participants when I am screen sharing
Share PowerPoint with Presenter View
If you would like to view your PowerPoint presenter notes, follow these instructions:
Follow the steps above to enable show Zoom windows while screen sharing
Start the PowerPoint presentation in presenter mode
Start the Zoom meeting
Move and resize the Zoom window to cover the current slide on the screen with the PowerPoint notes (presenter view).
One monitor should have the PowerPoint presentation full screen, while the other monitor should look like this:
In Zoom, click on Share Screen and share the desktop with the slide in full screen
Allow Others to Progress PowerPoint Slides
You can allow another participant in the Zoom call to progress through PowerPoint slides shared by yourself or someone else. Enable Slide Control in your settings on zoom.usu.edu. Then when in the call and after sharing content full-screen, select Slide Control in the sharing toolbar. See Zoom Help Center Controlling Slides for details.
