Screen sharing with an ultrawide / 4K monitor - what’s everyone’s experience like? In the past I tried to screen share with a 1440p monitor and people would complain my screen was too small so I have a secondary 1080p monitor that use exclusively for screen sharing. I’d love to move to either an ultrawide or just upgrade the 1080p monitor to a 4K one but am worried I’ll have the same issues it appearing small on the other persons end. Anyone have any suggestions?
