Zoom: Access Meeting Controls

  • Mute All.

On the session toolbar, select the Host tools icon to

  • Lock the session quickly.
  • Enable or remove a Waiting Room in real-time.
  • Allow or remove access to the Share Screen icon in real-time.

The leader's toolbar may also include these icons:

  • Unmute/Mute Audio - Activate or mute your own audio. Select the chevron beside the icon to choose an audio device.
  • Start/Stop Video (Webcam) - Active or deactivate your own webcam. Select the chevron beside the icon to choose a webcam.
  • Chat - Post and view chat messages during the session.
