    Nice presentation!

    Mr. Wigley, if possible, can you please share with me the name of the application that are you using for sharing specific windows to the show? I see that you have on the top bar of each window, near the close, minimise and maximise buttons,  a new control which says "Currently Sharing".

    Thank you very much!
