I believe this is yet to be added. Current teams version does not support shared pointer location from teams linux client.

Hi MichaelMassee-9029,

No single window application sharing is a known issue on the client now.
As HelmutsReinis-7086 said, current Teams for Linux version does not support shared pointer location.

we recommend you that please give a feedback to https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/39786418-add-a-mouse-pointer-option-to-show-location-of. Microsoft will always focus on customer’s feedback and experience. Some new features would be added to the services based on customers' feedback in the future, and your good ideas will be very helpful for them to improve the service.

Your time, understanding and cooperation will be highly appreciated.

Hi Michael,

Yes, it's so annoying. I tested in my lab and participants can't see the cursor on Teams for Linux client.

It seems no workaround for this feature now.

thanks for the feedback.

any chance to get an update for the Linux Client in the near future ?

for us in this Corona period, it is urgent decision to use Teams or Zoom in our School.

Any news on this?

Using MS teams on linux for some time now and people don't see my mouse cursor as described in this thread.

it is pretty annoying .

I already reported bug via the client.

Sad to see Linux people are always served last.

@MichaelMassee-9029 @YannickDufils-0906 latest insiders version (1.3.00.16851) includes:


cursor visible for other party while screen sharing


red border around shared desktop


Although limitation to share the whole desktop only is still present.


If you are using the Preview version, you should be getting this update next week.
