To stop screen sharing you may choose the floating widget shown at the bottom of the screen:

Stop share

Or navigate back to the meeting screen and see the top of your screen there:


Note: for best results, use a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080. A higher resolution (2560 X 1440) will cause your audience to see a blurry screen
