    Hello,

    I often use iChat's Screen Sharing feature to help friends and family with their computers, and it works pretty well. But I have a question.

    Is there a way to kill the Audio traffic ?
    1) I'd love to be able to have conversations here at home without the person I'm helping hear all the chatter.

    2) I'm assuming that if there's no Audio going then that's extra bandwidth that can be used for screen-refreshing etc.

    Anyhow, if anyone knows how to do this that would be great !
    (I'm using a 15" Pre Unibody MacBook Pro)

    Thanks !
    ~Ark

    Oh Man, just one of those days... I feel pretty dumb, I could swore I looked through the menu's but not well enough obviously.

    Thanks for pointing out what should have been obvious to me :)

    Okay one more question, hopefully this won't be as obvious.

    Is there a way to make it so it's not full screen ?
