What is Windows Meeting Space?

Windows Meeting Space gives you the ability to share documents, programs, or your desktop with other people whose computers are running Windows Vista. Some advantages are:

  • You can share your desktop or any program with other meeting participants.

  • You and other meeting participants can distribute and co-edit documents.

  • You can pass notes to other participants.

  • You can connect to a network projector to give a presentation.

Windows Meeting Space uses peer-to-peer technology and automatically sets up an ad hoc network if it can't find an existing network. So you can use it in a conference room, a favorite hotspot, or a place where no network exists. You can join a meeting that someone else sets up, or you can start a new meeting and invite other people to join it. Windows Meeting Space is on the Start menu, under All Programs.

Open Windows Meeting Space by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking All Programs, and then clicking Windows Meeting Space.

If this is the first time you open Windows Meeting Space, you will be prompted to turn on some services and sign in to People Near Me.
