In addition to voice and video calls, chat, SMS-messages, Skype developers added an opportunity to demonstrate your desktop to your friend during the call. For example, you are communicating on Skype with your friend and explaining to him how to remove the virus on his computer. To explain in words is quite difficult, especially when your friend doesn’t use the computer as much. It is a lot easier to show him how to do it, showing him the desktop. This feature allows you to display the work with a particular program, to show photos, presentations and more. In addition, this feature is available to all users free of charge. This guide will show you how to show desktop during Skype call.
