  2. Note the Meeting ID and the passcode.  Not every meeting will require this information but make sure you have it just in case.
  3. It’s a great idea to have Zoom downloaded on your desktop, especially if you’re participating in a lot of Zoom calls.
  4. Click on the link to join the Zoom meeting. 
  5. A dialog box will pop up that says “Open” You’ll see below the dialog box that you have the option to launch Zoom or download Zoom. 
  6. Once you hit open, it will take you to the Zoom meeting screen and you’ve successfully joined the meeting.
