How to join a Zoom meeting

We are not all digital natives so don't dispair! Hopefully below instructions will help you. Otherwise don't be shy to just ask me and I will guide you. Rest assured, once you've done it once it becomes very simple.

JOIN FROM YOUR DESKTOP PC​

  1. Click on the meeting invite URL that the host shared via email or text.

  2. Open the Zoom app.

  3. Approve the request for permission to use your computer's audio and camera.

Depending on the meeting's set-up, you may enter the meeting right away, you may need to wait for the host to arrive first or you may be placed into a waiting room that the host controls.

JOIN FROM YOUR BROWSER

You don't need to install any extra software to join or even host a Zoom meeting. You can do it all through a web browser.

  1. Click on the meeting invite URL that the host shared via email or text.

  2. A new tab will open on your preferred web browser. If you don't have the Zoom desktop app installed, the page will urge you to download the app.

  3. Ignore that and skip down to the small print: "If you cannot download or run the application, join from your browser."

  4. Click the highlighted text in "join from your browser".

  5. Sign in with your name to join the meeting.
