I was trying to explain to my 78 year old dad yesterday how to log in to his blog. (And how cool is it that my 78-year-old Dad is keeping a blog!?) I was trying to talk him through it on Skype--it would have been a lot easier had I known that Skype recently added a share your screen feature.
To Share Your Screen (for Mac and Windows)
Once your call is in progress, go to Call>Share Screen.
How easy is that?
You will need Skype 2.8 for Mac and 4.1 for Windows.
Screen sharing is available in Skype 2.8 for Mac and Skype 4.1 for Windows. You can share your screen with someone who has an older version and they will be able to see it, but they won't be able to share their own.
