To get the most out of GoToMeeting, you can download and install the full-feature desktop software on your Windows and Mac computer. This allows you to access all of our great collaboration tools, including drawing tools, shared keyboard/mouse control and multi-monitor screen sharing.
When you start or join a session using the desktop app, the app's Control Panel provides you with access to all of the in-session features and tools that GoToMeeting offers!
Note: Please note that this article applies only to the GoToMeeting desktop app (which is the software downloaded onto your computer). If you joined using the no-download, browser-based Web App, you will see a toolbar on your screen instead of the desktop app Control Panel that is described here.
Downloading the desktop app is available on paid plans only. Learn more.

The Windows Control Panel allows you to customize GoToMeeting to your own style and preference, including collapsing and rearranging the panes to whichever order works best for you and easily separating out some or all panes so that you can re-size them and move them where you want.
To separate a pane from the Grab Tab, click the Attendee and/or Chat icons to make the separate panes appear. If you expand the Grab Tab into the full Control Panel, the pane(s) will remain separated.
Even when the Control panel is minimized into the Grab tab, the most critical features remain accessible with just one click: Mute, Share Screen and Share Webcam.
When a presenter is sharing their screen and at least one attendee is sharing their webcam, you can rearrange the windows within your Viewer so you can focus on what's important to you.
