  1. THE MOST COMPREHENSIBLE Zoom Tutorial I have ever seen!! Much better than the ones on the Zoom site. Perfect pace, clear and precise instructions. Excellent use of the screens. You made it as easy as it can be. Coming across the answers you gave to every post, it's amazing your ability to teach in just enough words, so peaceful and patient. Besides, you look great! Wish every tutorial on the internet had this clarity. We could get rid of millions of training videos and would need but one for each new app/gagget. Thank you soooo much!!

  2. Thank you so much! This was very comprehensive and clear and helped me understand sharing in time for the zoom meeting I am hosting this afternoon. Thanks again, you do a great job!

  3. At 2:42 how to know you are signed in. My screen is different. Does not show that icon. But it says “my account” at top right, next to “host a meeting “. Again, I do not know why my screen is different than what is shown here. We are under lockdown. No one to ask for help. Just want to host a meeting so I can see my friends. Good luck!

  4. I had attended zoom meetings for work using my work email (work gmail account). I want to host a zoom meeting for friends, using my personal gmail account. I had to “sign up” (they ask for birthdate; give a fake one) because it is my first time to use zoom using my personal gmail account. My experience (2 different gmail accounts) is different than what is presented here. Good luck !

  5. I have a completely different experience. I have already used zoom but never as a host. So, I have the zoom app on my laptop. The host always sends me the link. I never had to sign in to zoom. Now I go to Download Centre Zoom as she said. I click Download. I click Launch App. I click on Sign In. It asks me for my email and password. I do not know my zoom password. If I choose sign in with Google, it asks me for my birthdate (very sensitive info) which I do not want to give. I gave a fake birthdate and that seemed to work. I made chose a password (remember to record it). This is not for work. Just a zoom meeting with friends. So, I used my personal email. They asked me to invite colleagues but I did not as my friends’ emails do not have same domain name as mine. Zoom assumes you are using it for work.

  6. Hey, when you said its good to mute participants on entry does this keep thrm muted or is it literally just for a few seconds when they entry? And also the share page option, i am doing a baby shower and need to include music from an amazon music playlist and a powerpoint wjth slides in, do i put those documents into a certain place so that when i go to get them they are easy to find? Thanks x

  7. I'm hosting a zoom meeting on Thanksgiving day since all my family can be together for Thanksgiving this year how do I let people into the zoom meeting I've never hosted one before

  8. Thank you SO MUCH for this video! I've been wanting to try Zoom just so I can connect with my family who are far away, over these upcoming holidays! I'm totally new to any of it. Your video is so clear and concise. I've watched others and they left me wondering… were too fast or not clear. If I don't have a password, and we're only doing Zoom via a computer or tablet, do I have to send that entire "meeting information invite" with all the phone numbers, etc. to the people I email to? or can I just get a url link that will hook them up to the meeting? not sure why I have to send all those phone numbers. And I hope I'm clear on how to invite. Do I just manually send an email to the ones I want to invite, with a url for the meeting? Thanks so much!

  9. Loved your tutorial! I want to schedule a zoom call for Thanksgiving with my family, how do I invite people for a future day? And is the invitation only with a persons email or can it be like a text and use their phone number?

  10. I really liked your careful way of sharing this but now that I've gone in, I definitely don't get the same "box" that comes on your screen when I schedule. So there is no "invitation" and no box with all that info. No idea how to invite the person.

  11. I echo Milovan's comment. I tried a couple of other YouTube videos and they came nowhere close to this one. I've used WebEx, and Lynx. It's always tough getting accustomed to new applications. You gave me a great start. I'm going to practice with a meeting tomorrow. Thanks

  12. The problem I was having was retrieving the invitation from the clipboard and into the e-mails. I discovered from someone that when in the e-mail, push the Windows flag key with the v key together, then the invitation will be there. Is there another way to do it?

  13. Really helpful thank you but I am really dumb. How do you put the link onto the clipboard ? What is a clipboard ? How do you get that invitation link onto a persons email address ? Talk slow I'm 80 !

  14. Terrific and very clear video – thank you. Could I ask this question: If I set up a meeting, and log on to wait for recipients to join, will I get a notification that they're in the "waiting room" and will I then have to admit them in some way? Or will they just appear on the screen? I'm hoping to arrange Zoom meetings with an elderly friend, who isn't at all computer-literate, and I want it to be as easy as possible for her. Thanks.

  15. I agree with everyone else…I had begun to think it was impossible to find a clear, straightforward tutorial on hosting for the first time. What is so often missed out is that the host's screen looks like when a participant enters. Thank you – I now know that is gallery view! And that when you share your screen the participants' videos become invisible to you. Can I check though that you can still see your own video when you are, say, hosting a powerpoint presentation, and the participants can still see each others videos as well as the host's? Thanks!
