16. Screen sharing with Skype

It seems that everybody now is using screen sharing. The latest that I have used is Skype. All you need to do is start a conversation with somebody and then in the conversations window click Share > Share Your Screen in the IM toolbar (in Windows) or ShareShare Screen (on a Mac). It could hardly be simpler. Then you can expand the image to cover the whole of your desktop if required.

Hi ian.smythe,

Would you be interested in knowing about Mikogo desktop sharing? It's a freeware which allows you to share your screen live over the Web with 10 others. There are many features included which you can find at Or feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
