Controlling microphone or camera for other participants

If you are the host or co-host of a meeting, you can also check if the participants have a microphone and camera on. To do this from the list of participants:

  • Move the mouse pointer to the bottom of the Zoom window and click on Participants.
  • When you click a name in the participant list, you can mute or unmute the microphone by selecting Mute or Unmute. To check if the camera is on or off for a particular participant, hover over the participant's name, click More, and select Stop Video or Start Video.
