It sounds almost impossible. I use Zoom and Viber to share screen. Have no idea 
of screen forwarding to a VM.


Maybe HMV can help, not regular AppVM :)


2) Cross-clipboard operations don't work by any means. Cross-usage of 
applications, user-generated shortcuts to apps - everything seems a problem.
On Windows I have the same problem :) Copy not work every time. 
After I migrate to Q, then it works perfectly



5) Templates are based on pretty specific distros like Fedora and Debian. It 
takes time for Arch and Windows templates to create.
First, What I do after migration to Q was setup of Windows HVM. After 
playing with Qubes and Windows... I does not start Windows, because I 
found all application at Fedora which replace the need to start Windows. 
Now, I start it one-two times a week for the specific problems only.



Again, the idea is excellent. If there is a way to save my time on points 1-3 I 
would be thankful.

Continue learning the system...

It should be easier to share a domU's screen, but sharing dom0's screen is, at 
least to some extent, inherently insecure.

Are you following the instructions here?

This might be a hardware incompatibility issue. I haven't experienced this, and 
I don't recall any other reports of this.

Can you provide more detail or context about what happened and what you're 
trying to achieve? The problem you're describing sounds like something that 
shouldn't be happening as a consequence of normal usage.

We welcome help in streamlining the process.

I suppose difficulty is relative, but it should be easier now with USB 
passthrough:
