Screen sharing

During a Skype session you can present screen content, i.e. make your entire desktop or individual windows visible to the communication partner. You can also hand over control so that a help desk employee can actively support you remotely in case of problems. These actions always start from you. nobody can control your PC without your prior consent. You can take back the control or stop the presentation at any time.

Also holding a PowerPoint presentation to the conference participants is possible.
