What About Classrooms Without Projectors?

Not all classrooms or labs have projectors in them, so Remote Desktop includes an innovative solution for instructors called the Share Screen command. The Share Screen command is almost the exact opposite of Remote Desktop’s Observe command: it allows the user of the administrator computer to replace the contents of the screen of the selected workstation(s) and display either the contents of the administrator computer’s screen or the contents of another Remote Desktop client. If the displays of the target computers are set to a lower screen resolution than the screen that is shared, it will be scaled down to fit.

When a screen is shared, the users of the target workstations can view only the shared screen; they cannot interact with it. Users also cannot interact with their workstation while it is receiving shared screen data.
