I'm presenting in Zoom...what are some important things I should know?
Here are some tips for those hosting Zoom meetings for the first time.
Share a Screen
Hosts can share from their computer, everything from documents, spreadsheets, editing programs, to file in your Google Drive. The share button is on the bottom tab, in the middle of the screen. Just click it, and choose which program you want to share.
Pause or resume screen sharing: Alt + S
Ambient or background noise can often get in the way of clear communication. The meeting host can hit ⌘Cmd+Ctrl+M (Mac) or Alt+M (PC) to mute everyone on the call at once. Or follow the steps below and click on the mMute All button.
