Share Your Screen Via Chrome

Now that you have added the Newrow Smart Screen Share web extension, you can share your screen in your Newrow Smart live session.

Start Sharing Your Screen Via Chrome

  1. Click Tools
  2. Select the Desktop Share option
  3. Choose what you would like to share:
    1. Your Entire Screen - Default option. If you have multiple screens, then you can choose which screen you want to share. This option offers the greatest flexibility in that you can move around different applications and windows and your participants will see everything. Because of that, it does offer the least control on what you are sharing at a given moment.
    2. Application Window- See a list of applications currently running on your computer. Select the Application you want to share to share only a view of that application. The application cannot be hidden or minimized to share it.
    3. Chrome Tab- Choose a specific browser tab you want to share.
  4. Click the Share button

Share Your Screen Via Firefox

You can share your screen via the Firefox browser without adding an additional web extension. You just need to give permission to Newrow to share your screen similar to how you give Newrow permission to access your webcam and microphones.

  1. Click Tools
  2. Select the Desktop Share option
  3. From the Firefox permission bubble, choose the screen you want to share
  4. Click Allow

Sharing your screen from Firefox is like sharing Your Entire Screen when using the Newrow Screen Share Web Extension.
