Zoom.us (Version 5.x) limits screensharing to only the Host, by default. You have to enable sharing for all participants every session.

Is there a way to change that default to allow all to screenshare every session?


Under your profile on the Zoom portal, click on Settings on the left.

There will be an option called "Screen sharing" under the "In Meeting (Basic)" section as shown in this picture:

Screen sharing settings option

You can then toggle this setting to allow all participants to share their screen for the meetings where you are the host.

As per the Zoom help center:

For Free/Basic accounts, screen sharing is set to Only Host by default.

Hence, this setting will need to be changed to allow all participants to share their screen by default.
