Windows: Error starting screen share

Last updated: August 14, 2023.

Platform: Windows

Version: All supported versions


Sometimes an instructor may receive an error message saying, “Error starting screen share. SDK Error: WrongUsage”.  This article details how to resolve that error message.


Check the Zoom setting to Disable desktop screen sharing for meetings you host, and make sure it is toggled off.

Having this setting toggled on will prevent users from sharing their full desktop. However, users can still choose an application to share in Class.
