This document describes how to record in Zoom.

Zoom updates it's software on a regular basis with important security items as well as updates to features. To make sure you have the most current version, check for updates.

  1. Once you have started a Zoom meeting, locate the menu at the bottom the Zoom window. 


  2. If you want to show your video, make sure your camera is enabled. Click the Start Video button to enable your camera. 

  3. If you want to record a PowerPoint presentation or actions on your computer, click the Share Screen button.

  4. This will bring up a new window prompting you to select a window or application to share. Choose what you want to share (i.e. Screen) and click the Share button at the bottom-right corner of the window. 

  5. Note the menu moves to the top of the Zoom window when you share your screen.
