Why don’t I see all my applications in the list of available apps when sharing my screen (Web client)?

Last updated:

Currently, the Chrome API we are using to support screen sharing in Circuit (when Circuit is used with Chrome) shows the list of apps that are not minimized. Minimized apps will not show in the list.

To work around this you just need to maximize the application you want to share, go back to Circuit (without minimizing the app) and then you will see it available in the list.

Alternatively, you can just share the whole screen and then whichever app you have in view will be shared until you close the screen share session.
