  • Unfortunately you will not be able to get to that level of granularity. There are no configurable settings within the conferencing policy in which a user can only share, say, Microsoft Excel and not Microsoft Word or Microsoft Access.

  • Extremely sorry about that, but maybe you don't like users sharing their entire computer; after all, when they do that everyone in the meeting sees everything that happens on the shared computer, including such things as a Microsoft Outlook "toast" popping up to announce a newly-received email. Because of that, you might prefer to limit users to sharing just a single application; that way, people in the meeting only see the activities that take place within that application. In that case, just set EnableAppDesktopSharing to SingleApplication:

     Set-CsConferencingPolicy –Identity global –EnableAppDesktopSharing SingleApplication


    When you do that, the Desktop option will no longer be available under the Share menu.
