Barco ClickShare is used to wirelessly share your laptop or mobile device screen through a room's audiovisual system.

There are three ways to connect to ClickShare:

    • If the touch panel is black or showing 'PRESS SCREEN TO ACTIVATE', touch the display to activate the panel.
  2. Select the 'Click Share' button at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Connect the ClickShare USB dongle to your laptop. The light on the dongle will flash.
  4. If you're using a Windows device, open 'File Explorer' > 'ClickShare' > 'ClickShare_for_Windows'. If you're using a Mac, open 'Finder' > 'ClickShare'> 'ClickShare_for_Mac'.
  5. When ClickShare is ready, the light on the dongle will stop flashing. To share your screen on the display, click the button on the dongle. The light on the dongle will change to red.
  6. To stop sharing your screen, click the button on the dongle again.
