Microsoft SharedView – Share Desktop Screen

Microsoft SharedView is a great screen sharing  tool which is used to manage small meetings, as it lets you share your desktop, applications, or documents with 15 people at the same time. One of the perks of this utility over the other desktop sharing tools is that it works perfectly through routers and firewalls. All you need is a Window Live ID!
