Using ‘zoom’

When viewing a talk via ‘zoom’ it is possible to switch views by clicking the icon shown in the top right hand corner of the small floating preview window below. As you move the cursor into the position indicated by the red arrow – a descriptive pop-up should appear ‘swap shared screen with video’. Clicking the icon you can quickly toggle between the actual slideshow (a powerpoint or video which is being displayed in the room on the large screen) and the room view as seen through the camera lens (where the presenter might be demonstrating a prop for the talk). The small floating preview window then shows the alternative screen to the one selected. The selected (active) screen will now be displayed full size on your computer.
