Screen Sharing - New Terminal Tabs (macOS) Do Not Show When Sharing Application Window


  • This issue applies to Mac users who join Highfive meetings using the Highfive desktop application or Chrome in-browser experience.
  • When clicking Share screenchoosing Application Window, and sharing the Terminal application window, everything will work as expected. This issue does not occur unless a user creates a new tab within Terminal, which will not be shared. 


  1. End and restart the screen share. 
  2. Share the entire window instead. 
  3. We will inform you once this is fixed or improved via the Highfive Release Notes. You can subscribe to email updates here:
