By using the web tool join.me you will be able to share your screen with someone else over the internet. Can be really useful if, for example, you are learning a new program at a new job, working together on a document, or are having error messages popping all over your screen and need someone to look at them. To use the screen sharing tool just follow these simple steps:

Step 1 – Using your favorite browser, navigate to join.me (you could also type in https://join.me)

Step 2 – Choose the option either to start meeting or join meeting, you would start a meeting if you want to share your screen with someone else, would join a meeting if someone else is sharing their screen with you.

Step 3 – If you are sharing your screen with someone else, you will need to generate a one-time use code to send to the other person. You need to click on start meeting, and follow the installation prompts on the screen. A small app will be downloaded to your computer, you will need to install it and wait for it to run

To install, click on join.me.exe where it has been downloaded to your computer, and when prompted, click on run.

Step 4 – Once you have clicked on Run, wait for installation to complete, app will launch automatically, and a one-time use code will be generated for you, you will need to give this code to the person waiting for you to share your screen with them.

To make it easier, you can send them the link in the following format, https://join.me/470-719-512, via e-mail for them to click on it and automatically join the meeting.

Step 5 – If you receive just the code, 470-719-512, you will need to go the website and click on join meeting, enter code, click Join and wait for the website to open the other computer’s screen.
