Summary List Placement
Whether it’s your Friday team check-in or your grad school Wednesday workshop, Zoom allows you to stay in contact with colleagues and classmates to complete work remotely.
While the platform is fairly easy to use, its basic functions are organized slightly differently depending on if you use the desktop or mobile version.
Most of the key tasks, however, remain easy to spot despite slight changes: scheduling or joining calls, keeping track of your contacts and meetings, and making changes to your account settings.
Many companies may already have video services in place, but Zoom is proving to be especially helpful for high school and college-level courses as it allows for up to 100 participants with a free account subscription.
Here’s a quick guide to the app’s essential features.

How to use Zoom on your computer
1. Open the browser of your choice on your Mac or PC and head to the Zoom website to create and manage an account. Click on “My Account” after logging in to bring you to your account details.

5. Other tabs on the left hand side include webinars, recordings, and your settings. The webinar feature can only be enabled if you pay for an account, and recordings will direct you to enable the feature for you and your meeting participants.
6. You’ll also find more advanced settings towards the bottom of the left panel, including managing users and rooms. You can also upgrade your account under “Billing,” or manage your payment information if you’ve already upgraded to Pro, Business, or Enterprise.
