How To Do Recording In Zoom

Zoom is a widely used video conferencing tool that enables users to interact with others from afar. What sets Zoom apart is its functionality for recording sessions and webinars. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the steps to record a meeting using Zoom.

Step 1: Start a Meeting

To begin recording a meeting on Zoom, you must first start a meeting. You can do this by clicking on the “New Meeting” button in the Zoom app or by logging into your Zoom account and selecting “Host a Meeting.” Once you have started the meeting, you will be able to access the recording options.

Step 2: Enable Recording

To enable recording on Zoom, click on the “Record” button located in the toolbar at the bottom of your screen. This will open up a menu where you can select whether to record the meeting locally or to the cloud. If you choose to record locally, the video and audio files will be saved to your computer’s hard drive. If you choose to record to the cloud, the files will be stored on Zoom’s servers.

Step 3: Customize Recording Settings

Once you have enabled recording, you can customize the settings to suit your needs. You can choose whether to include video, audio, and chat messages in the recording. You can also select which participants’ videos will be recorded and whether or not to record the screen sharing.

Step 4: Start Recording

Once you have customized your recording settings, click on the “Record” button again to start the recording. A notification will appear in the meeting chat letting everyone know that the meeting is being recorded. You can pause or stop the recording at any time by clicking on the “Pause” or “Stop” buttons.

Step 5: End the Meeting

When you are finished with the meeting, click on the “End Meeting” button to end the call. If you recorded the meeting locally, the video and audio files will be saved to your computer’s hard drive. If you recorded to the cloud, the files will be available for download from your Zoom account.


Recording a meeting on Zoom is a simple process that can be done in just a few steps. By following these guidelines, you can ensure that your meetings are recorded and saved for future reference or sharing with others.
