« on: October 28, 2020, 05:11:00 pm »
Click on the invitation link in email

Click on the Launch Meeting button

Click on the Install link, then install from the down loaded file

Wait for the Zoom installation to complete

Click on  Open Meeting or Launch Meeting if that doesn't work
If you have an error, close Zoom and click on the email link again, you may need to enter a name

Click join meeting if you see it, rarely you may need to write in the ID & Passcode from the email

You have a choice whether you show yourself or speak by clicking on the named icons

With Picture, note audio and video buttons are not muted

Two members in the meeting, one with picture, one without

An example of a meeting with two members on the right hand side, Gallery View
The speaker normally mutes every one when the presentation starts

Speaker View

Only the menu bar visible

You can hide all of the video panel for the talk, so none of the presentation is missing

The speaker normally allows every one to unmute when the presentation finishes for questions
On a computer you can unmute yourself temporarily by holding down the space bar
You may need to select Gallery view then, the person speaking is highlighted with a green border around their video

Hopefully this is enough to get you started to enjoy Zoom meetings
You can leave the Zoom meeting by clicking end or the speaker will end the meeting

Here are Tricia's instructions for installation on your Apple device

So this is the App Store icon (ringed) on an Apple product - iPad, iPhone, Mac, etc.

Once in the App Store, need to search for “Zoom for iPad” as ringed at the top in this one. 
The ringed one is the free app to download. It will say ‘GET’ in the little  blue box.
Here it says ‘OPEN’ as I already have it!

Please note the Microphone Mute/Unmute and Stop/Start video buttons on the top right hand of the screen,
which are in a different place to Windows Zoom

If these buttons aren't visible on your ipad, tap the screen to make them appear

There are a Automatic settings in Zoom to:
Always have the top menu visible
Always join with Audio
With Stopped Video or to be visible
With Muted or Unmuted Audio

Screenshot soon

You may also find more clues in this Zoom installation document:
