Where Can I Find My Zoom Recording Settings?

You can change your settings for your Zoom recordings as well. Start by opening your Zoom Client and clicking the “Home” button at the center of the top of your page. The software may bring you to your home area automatically. On the upper left side of the software, you will see a “Settings” icon resembling a nut or flower with a hole in the center. When the toolbar loads, click “Recordings.”

A box will pop up with all the settings you can adjust. Review these settings and select those that you desire. You can also change your local recording file path by clicking on the file path at the top. Then, click “Choose a new location” and select where to store your recordings.
