Sometimes when you try to share your screen on a Mac, you choose the application you want to share and nothing seems to happen.

This is usually due to a security setting. You can fix this by following these instructions:

  1. Go to your Mac System Preferences
  2. Click on Security & Privacy
  3. Click on Screen Recording
  4. Ensure that Google Chrome has a tick against it.
  5. Close your Chrome browser and re-open it. Screen sharing should be good to go.
