VidyoDesktop - Screen sharing is available for full display on Windows 8 and later


For VidyoDesktop version 3.6.5 and later, on Windows 8 and later, in certain scenarios when a user shares an application, other applications running on that user’s machine may also be shared into the conference. Due to this privacy concern, we have limited sharing on Windows 8 and later to sharing the full display only. On Windows versions earlier than Windows 8 and on Mac OS X, this issue does not exist, therefore application sharing is still available.


Please note this issue does not exist on the VidyoConnect generation endpoints.

    Dear Vidyo Team,

    Could you please get this feature back or make a option for alternative choice? Our customer feedback to me about full display sharing only, They can't see are participate in meeting room. For that reason they have request downgrade VidyoDesktop to previous version.
