Zoom meetings can be hard to sit through if you’re struggling to hear other attendees. It can be even worse if you’re barely able to keep your headphones in because they’re too loud. Unfortunately it’s not immediately clear how to adjust the volume in a zoom meeting. If you’re struggling to find the volume controls then check out today’s article below.
Adjust Volume in the Zoom Desktop Client
Step 1: While in a Zoom meeting, hover over the window so that the
Meeting controls appear
Step 2: Click the up arrow to the right of the
Mute symbol at the far left of the
Meeting controls and then select
Step 3: Use the volume sliders to adjust your speaker (what you hear) or microphone (what others hear) levels
Adjust Volume via the Windows Volume Mixer
If you’re unable to adjust the volume in the Zoom meeting client, then you can always use the Windows volume mixer instead.
Sorry Apple people, I don’t have an iMac to demonstrate the same process for but it should be very similar!
Step 1: Right click the speaker icon at the bottom right of your computer’s task bar and select
Open Volume Mixer
Step 2: Find Zoom in the
Volume Mixer and use the slider to lower the volume
Note: Sometimes 2 Zoom options appear in the volume mixer. Try to turn down (or up) the one with a “bobbing” green bar.
