  • Presenting as a third-party participant in a Skype meeting

    A third-party participant can join our Skype meetings using the audio and video features (if you

    have a headset and webcam) and view the content that is being shared in the meeting. You will appear as an attendee rather than a presenter, which limits what you can do in the meeting.

    For example, you can view the content that is being presented but you cannot present content

    yourselves. This section shows you how to present content once your access has been changed.

    1. Under Participants youll see whos in the meeting, third-party participants will appear under Attendees

    2. To allow an attendee to share their screen, a presenter must right-click on their name

    3. Select Make a Presenter

    4. Your name will now appear under Presenters

    5. You now have the same access as the person that organized the meeting and can share your screen by selecting Present and Present Desktop
