Follow Presenter’s Pointer During Screen Sharing Follow

Overview

When a presenter is sharing a screen that is at a higher resolution than yours, you can automatically follow the presenter’s pointer on your desktop client. This is particularly useful when only a portion of the shared screen is visible to you, helping you stay focused on the important part of the shared screen.

Prerequisites

  • Zoom Client for Mac, version 4.1.8826.0925 or higher
  • Zoom Client for PC, version  4.1.8826.0925 or higher

Instructions

  1. Start or join a meeting or webinar on a Zoom desktop client.
  2. When screen sharing begins, the Follow Presenter’s Pointer option is automatically enabled.
