  1. I had to use Zoom during the Pandemic. The installation is straight forward and easy. The real problem is with updating. You won’t know you need to update until you open Zoom for the meeting and when you try to join the meeting you won’t be able to because it will only then tell you to update. You must download the new package, remove the old package and then install the new package. If you must use Zoom check the version a bit before your meeting so that you don’t miss half the meeting updating Zoom.
