The issue is whenever i try to screen share either in teams app or in a google meet , it shares some rando previous instances of the screen .Even though i had closed all other windows it shares some previous instance of the screen . By previous instance i mean that , if i had previously opened a document on okular and closed it .While screen sharing the screen i had at the time of viewing the document is shared.I am a college student and am attending online classes , so screen sharing is really important for me. Any help is appreciated.

Do you have a xorg config file? The chosen AccelMethod might be at fault.
Check the wiki for the different options Intel graphics - ArchWiki

Thanks a lot @mithrial , i added a intel-conf file in the xorg.conf directory with the Accel Method set to “uxa” and now screen sharing works perfectly normal . Thanks a lot for your help.

But now i get a different problem. I get a black screen with just the cursor when the laptop is left idle and the only option i have is to switch it off using the power button.
