There are all of the situations where you may need to share your screen with other people. Perhaps you want to show them a presentation. You need to teach someone how to perform a task. Or you need to show an error to a technician to get advise on solving a problem.

Whatever the reason may be, if you're running Windows 10, you can use the Skype app to share your screen during a call.

In this Windows 10 guide, we'll walk you through the easy steps to quickly share your screen with other people during a Skype call.

How to share your screen on Skype

To share your computer screen on Skype, use the following steps:

  1. Open Skype.
  2. Select a person from your contact list.
  3. Click the Video call or Audio call button to start the conversation.
  4. Click the Skype interface (or tab the screen) to unveil the call actions.
  5. In the bottom-right corner, click the two square overlapping button.

  6. If you're using a multi-monitor setup, select the display you want to share.
  7. Turn on the Share computer sound toggle switch (optional).
  8. Click the Share screen button.

Once you've completed the steps, your screen will now be available for viewing for all the people participating in the call. You'll also notice a yellow line around the screen letting you know the display that you're sharing and that the feature is currently enabled.

To stop sharing the screen with other people, click the Share screen button in the bottom-right corner of Skype.

Although we're focusing this guide using Skype on Windows 10, you can also use these instructions to share your screen using the desktop version of Skype for Windows 8.1, Windows 7, macOS, and even Linux.
