Re: signing in as host on Zoom

Yes Bob, the room needs to be I think it is called open in the settings on the web at otherwise you could not get into the room to claim host as far as I know.
If the room is open then once in the room you can go to the participant list and then go to your name and tab to more option and down arrow to claim host which will pop up a window put the key in and press enter and you should be made host.

According to the below article, it is possible to claim host privileges if the host key is known, which it is in this case. What I am not sure about is if the account has to be set up for anyone to come in and start talking, which this one isn't.

No, she will have to start the meeting, then grant you host via a
right click on your name under participants. This is how I did this. Good luck.

Hi all,
I'm guest hosting our monthly Zoom meeting for my friend who is going
to be

in Omaha this weekend. We've been on Zoom trying to figure out how to

me host privileges. She at first couldn't find her host key, but once
we figured out that, she sent it to me, the theory being that when the
time comes for hosting the meeting, I can sign in as host. The problem
is that I

can't find the button to do so on the desktop client using NVDA. Can

help please?
