How to share

Sharing content can be initiated from a number of places within WebEx Meeting Center:

  • Quick Start Tab - Gives the host quick access to the most commonly used sharing options via icons directly through the meeting window.
  • Toolbar Icons - Allows access from the tools bar at the top of the meeting sharing tab.
  • Drop Down Menus - Allows access to the sharing options via the drop down menus at the top of the meeting window consistent with that of windows based programs.
