How do you do Share My Desktop in Messages.  I help a few friends with problems on their Macs and I used to use iChat.

 

Can't quite dope it out in Messages.

 

Thanks.

That doesn't do it for me.  It just gives me my Buddy List and that doesn't seem to work anymore. E.g., I was Messaging with a pal who is on that Buddy List and his entry there never lit up:  no green camera. He explained the way to do a Share My Desktop/Screen sharing was to type the name of the person whose screen you want to share into the Messages To: box, then, when contact is established, click on the camera icon next to that To: box.   Worked just fine. How do you get the old Buddy List to "light up" showing the person with whom you are exchanging Messages?
