Zoom: Share Screen Annotation Tools


During a Share Screen session, a variety of annotation tools are available for use. Leaders (hosts) and participants of meetings may use the Share Screen and Annotation tools. However, the leader of the meeting may lock the Share Screen tool and deactivate annotation permissions for participants.

To view the annotation tools during a Share Screen, move the mouse to the top of the meeting interface and select Annotate on the toolbar. Or, on the bottom-left of the Zoom content window, find the Annotate icon, which is shaped like a pen.
