Dynamic Desktop Notes

  • Warning!!! Be careful of what you let others control. For example, you may not want to give someone control over your entire desktop.

  • Dynamic Desktop shares only what is inside the shared window. If another application overlaps the shared window, only the overlapped area is visible to participants.
