How to perform screen share in Windows 10/11 [2 cases]

At work, you might occasionally need to take control of someone’s screen or share your screen with others. You might, for instance, need to provide a presentation, assist a client with a software issue, obtain technical support, etc.

With these circumstances, a screen-sharing tool is very necessary for you. In this part, we will discuss how to share screen on Windows 10/11.

Case 1. Share screen in Windows with professional software

To share screen in Windows 10/11, we first recommend you choose a professional tool like AnyViewer, which has more functionality than Windows native tools.

AnyViewer supports one-click screen sharing as well as other specific use cases such as obtaining unattended remote access and transferring files between devices. Even better, the software provides an entirely unrestricted free version. Therefore, if you need to share your screen for remote assistance or access, AnyViewer is the best option.

Simply install the program on both devices, then follow the instructions to share your screen.
