Configuring your microphone, speakers and camera in Zoom

This guide will show you how to set which microphone, speakers and camera you will use in your Zoom session.

Selecting your microphone and speakers

While you are in a Zoom meeting, you can move your cursor to the lower portion of the Zoom window to bring up the Zoom toolbar. There you will see a microphone icon and an upwards facing arrow to the right. Select the arrow to bring up a menu of your available devices for your microphone and speakers. If you are using a headset or external microphone and Zoom does not automatically use them for your audio, you can select the correct device here.

Selecting your camera

In a Zoom meeting, move your cursor to the bottom of your Zoom window to bring up the Zoom toolbar. There you will see a camera icon and an upwards facing arrow to the right. Select the arrow to bring up a menu of your available camera devices. If you have multiple camera options and Zoom did not automatically use the correct device, you can select the correct device here.
