Have you ever wanted to share your screen with friends or colleagues on Discord, but found that the screen sharing feature was not taking up the entire screen? It can be frustrating when you want to show something on your screen, but it’s being displayed in a small window. In this article, I will guide you step by step on how to full screen Discord screen share, so you can have a better sharing experience.
Step 1: Open Discord and Join a Voice Channel
First, make sure you have Discord installed on your computer and open the application. Once you are in Discord, join a voice channel where you want to share your screen.
Step 2: Initiate Screen Share
To start screen sharing, click on the “Screen” button located at the bottom of the voice channel window. A pop-up window will appear asking you to select which screen or application you want to share. Choose the screen you want to share and click on the “Go Live” button.
Step 3: Enter Full Screen Mode
By default, when you start screen sharing on Discord, it will display your shared screen in a smaller window. To enter full-screen mode, look for the “Full Screen” icon located at the top-right corner of the screen sharing window. It looks like two arrows pointing outward. Click on this icon to maximize the shared screen to fill your entire display.
Step 4: Adjust Screen Resolution (optional)
If you want to change the screen resolution of your shared screen, you can do so by right-clicking anywhere on the screen and selecting “Video Settings” from the context menu. In the Video Settings window, you can choose from the available resolutions or input a custom resolution. Keep in mind that changing the resolution may affect the quality of the shared screen.
Step 5: End Screen Share
Once you are done sharing your screen, you can end the screen sharing session by clicking on the “Stop Sharing” button located at the bottom of the screen sharing window. This will stop sharing your screen and return you to the voice channel.
- If you are experiencing lag or poor video quality during screen sharing, try closing any unnecessary applications or processes running in the background.
- Make sure you have a stable internet connection to ensure smooth screen sharing.
- If other participants in the voice channel are experiencing issues with the shared screen, ask them to check their internet connection and device settings.
In conclusion, sharing your screen on Discord can be a helpful feature for various purposes, whether it’s for gaming, remote work, or online collaboration. By following the steps outlined in this article, you can easily full screen your Discord screen share and enhance the viewing experience for yourself and others. Happy screen sharing!
