Standardize Webex application sharing

Problem:
Currently the specific application sharing feature within the Webex App works differently based on whether it's being shared in a meeting (for example Scheduled meeting or Personal Meeting Room) or if it's a Webex space ( for example 1 on 1 or Webex Space ).
The difference:
- While in a meeting: the specific application shared ( Notepad from screenshot) is surrounded by grayness covering up the Presenter's remaining desktop without upscaling the shared application itself to full screen unless the application is manually set by the Presenter to be full screen on their end as well.
This prevents Presenters from having a convenient partial sharing function of their screen (within a meeting) as they have to full screen the desired application on their end rendering them unable to interact with the rest of their desktop and to a certain degree forces them to use a second monitor in order to achieve the desired shared application size for their viewers' convenience and ability to clearly see the shared application.

- While in a Webex space: the specific application shared (Notepad from screenshot) is fully upscaled for the viewer even though on the Presenter's side it is not in full screen mode.
This allows the Presenter to have access to the rest of their desktop without having the need of a second screen as even though the shared application is not in full screen mode on the Presenter's end it is being streamed in full screen mode for the viewers convenience.

Feature request:
As mentioned in the title a standardization between these two types of application sharing would be greatly appreciated with an added option being also implemented to toggle between the two types of application sharing for the customer's convenience.

I appreciate taking the time to review this feature request and hopefully it gets implemented sooner rather than later for the sake of our customer's user experience.

Take care and stay safe,

    It's a bug not a feature. other vendors can handle this without any problem. why is Cisco working against user experiance?
