Does the ClickShare extended desktop work on Mac OS X?


This article applies to the following products:

The ability to create a virtual second desktop is currently not available on macOS when using the ClickShare Button or app, but can be achieved when using Airplay to share your screen to a ClickShare device supporting Airplay casting. 

If you want to use this functionality to see presenter notes when presenting a Powerpoint presentation, we refer to the Presentation mode in the ClickShare Desktop application: see [KB10950]
