I'm having problems with screen share on Google Hangouts. When I click screen share I can only share my entire screen.
I would like to share individual windows or one specific monitor.

It seems that screen sharing is somehow limited or broken when using Hangouts without the plugin. I have got the plugin installed and screen sharing of individual windows is working fine in both Chromium and Firefox. I tried to disable the plugin in Chromium (43) and screen sharing didn't work at all (this is probably related to another issue: https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=413942). I would recommend you to install the latest plugin.
Now the plugin should be used for Hangouts. Please send us more information if the screen sharing is still not working for you.
A note to sharing a specific monitor: I think it's possible to share just a specific window or the whole desktop. I didn't see a possibility to share a specific monitor yet.
