I help people with 'friends and family tech support' a lot and it is frustrating that I don't know of a super easy way for them to share their screens with me. I don't want them to have to register, sign up, etc. A site, or a small download would be ideal.
- Demodesk is a collaborative screen sharing tool that doesn't require any downloads or extensions. It works out of the box with any device and any browser, lag-free - yes, also Internet Explorer! Anyone can join by just clicking a link. And because Demodesk acts like a normal website, even the strictest firewalls won’t block it. What is so special about Demodesk, is that you don't have to share your local desktop. What it does is providing a virtual display on which you can set up websites, apps, slides, videos or documents to present. That way, you decide what the other participant(s) can see – and, most importantly, what not (like Slack notifications, your Sales Force notes, etc.) Also, both presenter and viewer can click and type simultaneously. Demodesk lets you even share control with multiple parties at the same time. Full disclosure: I work at Demodesk
