Screen Sharing from your own Mac Computer

Screen Sharing

Open a Finder window. If no shared computers appear in the Shared section of the sidebar, put the pointer on the word Shared and click Show.
Select a computer, then click Share Screen.
If you know the IP address or the DNS name of the Mac you want to share, you can also connect to it by choosing Go > “Connect to Server” in the Finder, and then entering vnc://[IPAddress] or vnc://[Name.Domain] in the Server Address field.
Select how you want to connect to the Mac:
As a registered user: Connect to the other Mac using a valid login name and password. If the other Mac allows only specified users to connect, you must use a name that’s in its list of allowed users.
If someone else is already connected to the Mac as a remote user, a dialog asks if you want to share the display with the other remote user (Share Display), or log in concurrently using a different user name and screen (Log In). Choose the option to "log in" concurrently
If you choose Log In, you will share the Mac with the other remote user, but you won’t share the same screen.
If you know the IP address or the DNS name of the Mac you want to share, you can also connect to it by choosing Go > “Connect to Server” in the Finder, and then entering vnc://[IPAddress] or vnc://[Name.Domain] in the Server Address field.
