Unlike with typical programs, Sway was created from the ground-up to be a program that allows easy sharing. Once you
create a Sway, you will want to share your Sway with
colleagues, family, and even friends. Sway provides some awesome sharing options, and we will explore them in this tutorial.
Follow these steps to learn more:
- Open any existing Sway that you want to share, as can be seen in Figure 1, below.

- Now click the Share button as shown highlighted in red within Figure 1. This
brings up the Share drop-down menu, as shown in Figure 2.

Note: Depending on the type of account you are using to sign into Sway, the options you’ll see on the Share menu
may differ slightly.
Options within the Share drop-down menu are explained below, as marked in Figure 2, above:
- Just me: If you want to stop sharing your Sway, slide this Share switch to Just me, and you
will deactivate all Share options, as shown in Figure 3. Note that you can slide this switch only if you are signed in as the
owner of the Sway. Also, if you slide the switch to Just me, and then revert it again to Share, Sway restores
access for previously shared others.

- Share with the world: To make your Sway public, click Docs.com – Your public gallery. This option will
publishes your Sway to Docs.com, a file sharing and curation site from
Microsoft. Once the Sway is published on Docs.com, anyone searching Bing, Google, or other search engines can
find, view, and share your Sway.
- Share with friends: To share your Sway on social networks such as Facebook, Twitter,
Google+, Yammer, and others, click any of the icons within the Share with friends section.
Alternatively, you can copy the URL shown in the box under the social media icons and then paste it where you want.
Within this section you will also find the option to embed your Sway. To do that, click the Show more icon, as shown highlighted
in blue within Figure 4. Now click the Get embed code button (shown highlighted in
red within Figure 4).

This brings up the Embed this Sway window, as shown in FIgure 5. Copy the code by pressing the
Ctrl + C shortcut key (⌘ + C on a Mac) shortcut key to copy the already selected embed code, and paste it
wherever you want to embed it. Click the
Close button to return to Sway.

- More Options: If you want to permanently stop sharing your current Sway, click the Stop sharing button, as
shown highlighted in blue within Figure 2, earlier on this page. This permanently changes the URL
of your Sway so that anyone who previously could access with a link will no longer be able to do so. To share a Sway after you’ve stopped sharing
it, send a new share link.
- Choose any of the Share options based on your requirement.
