Muting (and un-muting)
While taking part in a video conference using Zoom, sometimes you need to mute your microphone to cough, suppress background noises, or to simply be polite while other people are talking. Here’s how to do it.
To mute yourself during a Zoom meeting, you’ll need to bring up the toolbar. On a PC or Mac, position your mouse over the Zoom window and it will pop up. On an iPhone, iPad, or Android, tap the screen until you see the toolbar.
Locate the “Mute” button (which looks like a microphone) on the toolbar. On a Mac, PC, web client, or smartphone, the toolbar stretches across the bottom of the screen or window. On a tablet, the toolbar appears at the top of the screen. Click or tap on the “Mute” button.
The Mute icon will change into a crossed-out microphone and the text will now say “Unmute.” Your microphone is now turned off and no one on the call can hear you.
To turn your microphone back on, click or tap the “Unmute” button on the toolbar.
After clicking “Unmute,” your microphone will be active again and everyone on the call will be able to hear you.
