In 2019, no one would have thought, but now it is it’s super important to know how to share your screen on Zoom. Zoom is a video chat app that many people use for work and talking to family when they cannot be together. It is like having a meeting but on your computer or phone.

So, instead of meeting in person, Zoom lets you have a meeting on the screen. You can see and hear each other, almost like you are in the same room. And guess what? You can also show what you are doing on your computer to everyone in the meeting.
