How to join a Zoom Meeting PC & Mac

Hi guys and welcome to 123myIT. In this video, we will show you how to join a Zoom meeting.

If you have been asked to join an online Zoom meeting but have no idea how to do that, do not freak out. This video will show you how to do it.

Guys this video will show you how to Join a Zoom meeting, but I will also be doing a video after this one which shows you how to create a Zoom meeting. So please hit that subscribe button.

Setup Zoom on PC and a Mac

I will show you how to do it on Windows first then Mac later in the video. Ok Let’s get started. Open up a web browser and type in Zoom.US.

That will take you to the official zoom website and you should see the Join a meeting link on the top of the web page. If you click on that it will take you to a Join a Meeting page, where is asks you for a meeting ID. Below that you also have an option of joining a meeting from H.323/SIP room. Don’t worry if this doesn’t make much sense to you just pointing this out so you know where to go if you need to connect to this type of meeting.

Ok let us check the meeting invite details that were emailed to us. So if you have been invited to a meeting you will normally have some meeting details sent to you via email. Here I have a copy of that invite which says 123myit is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom Meeting. Topic My meeting and a link which you can use to join a meeting. Go ahead and copy that link and paste it in your browser.

Meeting ID details

Press Enter on your keyboard and the meeting will start. You can also copy and paste the meeting ID directly into the web page or if you have the Zoom app installed you can copy the meeting ID into the Zoom app. And below that you can change your display name. When using the Zoom app you might be prompted for a password copy and paste that to join the meeting.

You might be prompted to download the Zoom app or if you already have it installed you will be prompted to Open Zoom meetings.  You should then see a popup, which says Please wait for the host to start this meeting. As you can see the meeting starts at 12pm but the time now is 11:15am. So we are a bit early. While we are waiting click test Computer Audio. In here you can test to see if your speakers and microphone are working. If you have different speakers and microphones you can change which one you want to use in these settings. For example you might have desktop speaker or headphone.

Join a zoom meeting
Zoom settings important to setup before you start.

Video Settings

If you click on Video you can change you video settings around. So here my webcam is just pointing at my Samsung phone playing a video. If you want you can rotate your video. Under camera if you have more than one camera you can select a different one. Below that you can change the ratio from Widescreen to Original. Enable HD just allows you to up the resolution so that your camera looks less pixelated. Mirror my video flips the video around. This is important if you are reading a book or something and you want to turn the text around the right way for your views to see it. Touch up my appearance makes the video look better.

Virtual Background

Ok click on Virtual background. This allows you to virtually add a background behind you. So if I select the 123myIT logo I can add it behind me. If we untick mirror the logo faces the right way. Note that its not picking up the phone very well. We can fix this by using a green screen. I don’t have a green screen cloth but I can change the LEDs in the background to green. Watch this.

There you go you can see the phone now. Its not perfect but work pretty well on my hand!

Ok the meeting has started. Just select join with computer Audio. The first thing that I recommend doing is turning off your Audio and video in the bottom left until you are ready. Otherwise, you might interrupt the Host if he or she has started speaking. Next up select participants and chat in the bottom, this will allow you to see who is in the meeting and display the group chat if you have a question. 

Webcam

If your not camera shy you can show your video by pressing the Start video button in the bottom left hand corner along with the Unmute button to start speaking. If someone else is speaking its good practice to mute yourself until you want to talk again. Along the bottom you also have a thumbs up and clap reaction which displays on your video. You also have buttons to share your screen and record.

In the top you have gallery view and speaker view buttons. It just changes the view so you can see more participants if you need too.

If you want to make sure you leave a meeting, click the leave meeting button in the bottom right of the screen.

Join a Zoom Meeting on a Mac

Joining a meeting on the Mac is pretty much the same. Go to Zoom.us in the web browser. Click Join a meeting. Copy and paste your meeting id. If its your first time joining a meeting click download and run Zoom app. Press continue and enter your password to install. Paste your meeting ID and change your name if you want and click join. Copy and paste your password.

Congratulation you have joined a Zoom meeting. All the options will be the same as the first part of this video.

Hi, Guys Welcome to 123myIT. In this video, we will show you how to install Windows 10 on a Mac in 2020.

🔥 Check out the SanDisk USB on Amazon Click here. https://amzn.to/2JZiWMV

🔥 Check out the MacBook Air range on Amazon Click here. https://amzn.to/38ggr2g

I get allot people asking me. Why would you want to install Windows 10 on a Mac? Moreover, my reply is always. You have nice Apple hardware; why not put the best OS software on that hardware? People, if you disagree leave a comment in the comments section below.

Get Windows 10 for FREE

Ok let us get started. You will need a Mac a USB stick and a copy of Windows 10. To get a FREE copy of Windows 10 you can get it from the 123myit.com website under downloads. However, you will need a Windows computer to download that copy onto your USB drive. In the Downloads section scroll down to where it says Windows 10 Media Creator tool and run that. Select create installation media for another Pc. For language, I select English US, Edition Windows 10 Pro and Architecture 64 bit.

Next we want to select ISO file. This is the Windows 10 file that we will copy to the USB and then from that USB we will copy it to your Macs Desktop.

SanDisk USB C and USB 3

Ok so I have already copied the Windows 10 ISO file to my Macs Desktop from the USB stick. The USB stick I am using is a SanDisk Dual drive USB. It has both USB C and the older USB 3 so I don’t get stuck when using USBs on my new MACs. They are helpful I will leave a link here. Once the Windows 10 ISO file is copied to your Macs desktop. Go ahead an open Boot Camp assistant. Just click on finder and search Boot Camp.

Ok if Boot camp does not select your Windows 10 ISO file Automatically go ahead and select it manually. Mine has detected so all is ok.

Windows 10 on Mac
Partition the Macintosh hard drive to keep both Mac and Windows.

Partition your Macintosh HD

The next step is to Partition your drive so that you can fit Windows 10 onto you Mac. If you are unsure about this just move your slider to halfway. Click install and then your Mac will download the Windows support software. This may take a while so let the Mac do its thing. Next, it will partition the disk and just follow the prompts it will restart.

If everything has gone ok you should see the Windows 10 setup screen. Just go ahead and select the options for Language and Click do not activate Windows now.

Ok select your country and follow the prompts to setup Windows 10.

So setup for personal use, click that and I always just use offline account. However, feel free to setup Windows whatever way you want. Click limited experience and then type in your user name. I just create 123myIT as a user. Add in a password and click next. I always click no and decline. Up to you, what you want to select for Privacy settings I just click no.

Installed Windows 10!

Awesome you have just installed Windows 10 on a Mac. The last step here is to make sure the Boot Camp drivers are installed. It is an important step so do not skip this. Otherwise, things like your sound buttons on your Mac will not work properly.

You should see a Boot Camp Window on your screen just click next and follow the prompts. If you didn’t get this screen go back into your Boot Camp folder on your hard disk and run the boot camp setup.exe file again. If you want to check your drivers are installing properly go into device manager and you should see all the devices install properly.

Sweet that is finished now check your devices and you can do a restart and test if your Sound and Volume buttons work ok.

Drag it across into your Applications folder. Once installed. Click on Go and Applications and open the Android File Transfer software. You might need to tap Allow on your Android device to give the computer access to your music folder. Close your windows and tap on the Android Transfer Software at the bottom of the screen.

Awesome you should now see the complete list of folders on your Android device. Find your music folder and drag it to the Computer desktop.

Unplug your Android

Once your music is copied, you can unplug your Android device you are finished with it now. Next, Plug in your iPhone iPad or iPod. Open up your Apple Music or iTunes. Then drag your Music folder from the Desktop into your Music or iTunes. Once that is done minimise your Music or iTunes app and the click on Go and Computer. Click on your iPhone and click on Pair if you have not done this already. Next click on the Music tab and put a tick in Sync music, then you can select Entire music library or you can do selected Albums.

How to Clean & Disinfect your iPhone & Case

Hi Guys Welcome to 123myIT.

Let me ask you this, when was the last time you cleaned and disinfect your iPhone? If your answer is never or rarely then now is probably a good time to start.

Apple has just recently updated their website on  what you can do to clean or disinfect your device. So I wanted to show you guys how to do that.

Disinfect your iPhone

To disinfect your device Apple says you can use a 70 percent isopropyl alcohol wipe or Clorox Disinfectant Wipes. They also recommend warm soapy water and apply these with a soft lint free micro fibre cloth.

Disinfect your iPhone
Disinfect your iPhone

I would recommend warm soapy water over the a disinfectant alcohol for three reasons. The first reason is you don’t know what chemicals are in the wipes so do you research especially if you have Asthma. Seriously, it only takes a Google search to find out. Second, those chemicals could burn certain parts of your phone and the last reason wipes are just not good for the environment.

If you don’t have soap then warm clean water is the next best option and if you don’t have a microfiber cloth any lint free soft cloth will do.

Don’t press hard on your phone when cleaning

Now to clean your phone if you have a case just remove it. Here I have an iPhone case from Element I will put a product link in the description below. I will show you how to disinfect and clean your case as well.

When cleaning your device what you don’t want to do is wipe to hard or excessively. Use a soft lint free cloth. Don’t use paper towels. Make sure your device is unplugged from any cables and don’t use sprays or anything that can get into the ports.

Alright so just take your disinfectant wipe an gently wipe the device over. You just need to apply enough so its moist not wet. And you should be able to see that moisture that I have applied on the screen and cameras. Make sure you lightly do the sides of the device as well. If I turn the screen off you should be able to see the disinfectant on the screen.

Ok once you’re finished just sit your device down for 4 to 5 mins. This will give the disinfectant some time to dry and kill any Viruses or Bacteria on your phone.

Soapy warm water – Disinfect your iPhone

If you have soapy warm water and a cloth the process is the same again just apply some soapy warm water to your cloth and start wiping your device over. Again you should see that the phone is moist not wet and you should make sure you do the back and sides as well.

If you have lint or dust in the power, speaker, camera or ear piece ports you can very gently try to clean these with the SIM eject tool or a paper clip. Just be very careful not to touch or put any force on the inside of the ports. Very gently dislodge the lint or dust and then you can use a moist cotton tip to help remove the dust from the port.

The process is the same for your case. However, be careful when use alcohol wipes on your case, as some cases might not like the Alcohol wipes. I suggest just spot testing the alcohol wipes first in a part of the case you won’t see. If it works fine just wipe your case over the same way you did with your phone. With soapy warm water you should be fine to use it on your case. No issues there. Don’t forget you can use the SIM eject tool and cotton tips to get into the harder places. Once disinfected put your case down for 4 mins to dry.

Cover your phone with plastic sleve

The last idea I had might seem extreme. However, if you are working in an extreme environment like a health care worker, it might be helpful. If you are going into an area where you know there might be the potential for infection you could also try putting your phone in an airtight zip lock back. So disinfect your phone first. Once its dry pop it inside a zip lock back and seal it up. You can still use the device from inside the bag. Then when you leave the hospital or infected zone you can remove it from the bag. If you are in this situation, it might be a good idea to disinfect the device again after you remove the bag.

Samsung S20 + Unboxing Firstlook Zooming Awesome!

Hi Guys and welcome to 123myit, in this video I will show you a first look at the Samsung Galaxy S20 plus.

Samsung S20 + Display

It’s pretty clear the Samsung S20 + does have allot of differences over its predecessor the S10 plus. These differences start with the design. The display is taller now and runs at 120 Hz along with that you an upgraded CPU, more Ram and a bigger battery. In addition, the annoying Bixby button is gone, thank goodness! Seems like Samsung is listening. Other features include and updated Camera, which we will talk more about later, and great sounding speakers.

Want to buy the S20 Plus? Click here.

Samsung S20 Plus
120 Hz display is amazing for games !

S20 Plus Colours

The colour that we have here today is Cosmic Grey, however the S20 Range also comes in Cloud Blue, Cloud Pink and Cosmic Black. In the box you also get some See us first, documentation with registration information and next up you will have a super-fast it’s a 25-watt charger and you can expect to fully charge the S20 in around an hour. The adapter I have here is the Australian new Zealand version, however if you are in the US you would have a US charger. It’s pretty standard these days to get a set of Headphones, these are design by AKG and are USB C Headphones. They also have three different sizes of rubber ear tips.

Hidden away in the top of the box you will have a SIM eject tool plus a quick start guide along with a see through case for your S20 phone. Having a cover case right out of the box is something that I think really makes a big difference and it is a really nice inclusion by Samsung. The quick start guide just shows you how to setup the phone and you have some warranty information.

S20 Plus Case

To show you what they see through case looks like on the S20 plus, you just push it in at the top and bottom corners. Without this case, the phone itself is a bit slippery, but once you put the case on straight away, it does not want to slip out of your hands. Actually it’s really hard to tell that there is even a case on the phone.

Let’s talk about the display. The S20 plus has a 6.7 inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X Capacitive touchscreen display. With a resolution of 1440 x 3200 pixels and 525 pixels per inch. Therefore, it is slightly larger than the S10 plus display. The display also supports HDR10+ and has a refresh rate of 120 and 60 Hz. There is no annoying camera notch on this model. Rather you just have a small round cut out for the 10 Megapixel front facing camera which has a F/2.2 aperture and it supports Auto HDR.

Samsung S20 + and iPhone 11 Pro side by side.

For the iPhone users out there is a quick comparison between the iPhone 11 Pro and S20 plus screen sizes. As you can see the S20 plus is a little bit wider and a fair bit taller.

S20 vs iPhone 11 pro side by side

Movies are amazing on this screen. I’ve set the refresh rate to 120 Hz and will give you 20 seconds of the new Star Wars screener. Just remember that it will be different when you have the S20 plus in your hand as some of the detail is lost during the recording, but you get the idea. One last thing listen out for the speaker sound it’s probably the most over looked feature on the S20 plus. They are described as simply Stereo Speakers but the sound is incredible. Here it is.

Camera Zoom on the S20 Plus

The Zoom on the S20 range is next level with the S20 and S20 plus doing 30 x Zoom and the S20 Ultra doing 100 x Zoom. Here is the S20 plus in action. It is a bit hard to see but can focus in on Sydney Tower which is about three miles or 5 kilometres away.

.05 x Zoom
30 x Zoom

I took some pictures at the different Zooms to give you an idea. So the way it works is that its Optical Zoom up until the 2 x Zoom. Then from four x to 30 x it’s Software Zoom. Samsung says they use AI to determine what the higher Zoom photos will look like. As you get higher in the Zoom, you do notice some pixilation of the photos. Overall pretty amazing for something you can store in your pocket.  Here it is again as I focus on a building that is out of the park and across the road.

Let’s not forget the other great features of the S20 plus. It has wireless charging and is IP68 dust and water-resistant. Along with Face Unlock, Finger Print scanner Micro SD card slot. I really think that the S20 range is worth upgrading too.

Apple MacBook Air Retina 2019 – Still good in 2020?

Hi guys and welcome to 123myIT. In this video, we take a look at the Apple MacBook Air 2019.

MacBook 2019 vs MacBook 2018

The 2019 MacBook Air is pretty much the same as the 2018 MacBook Air, However the 2019 version brings a lower price tag at $1099 USD for the 128GB storage model. An updated True Tone display and some small SSD changes and a butterfly keyboard which uses the same updated materials as the 2019 MacBook Pro.

Other included features are Retina Display, Force Touch trackpad, Touch ID, Great Speakers, the MacBook Air compact form factor. Modern eighth gen processor as well as Thunderbolt 3 ports. The colour that we have today is space grey. However, the MacBook Air also comes in the colours silver and gold. Now the MacBook Air only comes with one processor this is dual core 8th generation i5 clocked at 1.6 GHz.

Accessories

On to the accessories and it we take a look at the paper work first. We have the quick start guide, a set of colour matched Apple stickers and guarantee information. Next, up we have our charging Adapter. This is a 30-watt USB C charger. The model I have here is the Australian New Zealand version. However if you are in the US you will have the US version. You can actually remove the adapter prongs and add in an extension cable or an international wall adapter.In addition, the last accessory in the box is the USB C Charging cable.

Touch ID

Apple MacBook Air
Touch Id – A great feature on the MacBook Air

Although the MacBook Air did not get the touch bar it did get touch ID.  When you start the setup process, you will be prompted to setup touch ID.  Now you can use this to unlock your MacBook Air as well as authenticate payments and authenticate passwords. Along with the 13.3-inch Retina display, you also get a true tone screen. I hope that you can see the difference as I toggle true tone of and on.

The display is fantastic with a resolution of 2560 x 1600. This is the most affordable retina display on the Mac and it produces 40% more colour than the older design. You also get four million pixels, which is up from one million on the older models. The display is a IPS display now instead of a TN display, which means it has truer colours and better off axis viewing angles. IPS panels have a slower refresh rate than TN panels. Therefore, it means that this display is more suited to design work over gaming. The older models also had a wider display bezel. Which was aluminium right up to the glass. Now we have an edge-to-edge glass panel which is also more anti reflective than the old glossy panel.

Butterfly Keyboard

The Apple MacBook Air also has a butterfly keyboard which was the same one that debuted on the 2018 MacBook Pro. The great thing about this Keyboard is its quitter, but it also has a membrane under each key, which keeps dust out. This keyboard is a nice upgrade from the old keyboard as the keys are wider so that makes them easier to strike. Wider and more stable and they do not wobble like they did on the old MacBook keyboards. Because the keys do not move around so much you can type much faster. Improvements in backlighting because each key gets its own LED light, which means there is much less light bleeding around the side of the keys.  In addition, each key is brighter.

In terms of a Trackpad on the Apple MacBook Air, you get the force touch Trackpad that replaces the mechanical Trackpads on the older versions. So now, we have larger Trackpad surface that responds to pressure thanks to a haptic motor. The Trackpad is a little bit smaller than the one on the MacBook Pro, so there is more room on either side. This is good because it helps with palm rejection meaning that the mouse does not move around when you are typing.

Audio

On both sides of the keyboard, you have a set of front facing stereo speakers. Which are a massive improvement over the older keyboard design. The speakers are 25% louder and have twice the base with a much wider stereo sound. There are more immersive and less muffled. Take a listen.

Ports

If we look at the left side of the MacBook Air, we have two Thunderbolt three ports. These ports, which can be, used for charging as well as up to 5K displays. On the right side of the Mac Air, we have 3.5 Headphone Jack for your earphones. To plug in an external display you might need a USBC to HDMI adapter like this one. You just plug it into the USBC port on the left and plug the other end into your external display. Once done you should be good to go. Along the top of the MacBook Air, we have the FaceTime HD camera, which still records at 720p. You also get an LED indicator and ambient light sensor.

On the underside of the Mac Air, you have a single panel, which is held together by Pentalobe screws. In addition, they are matched to the colour of your Mac Air we also have plastic feet on each corner which protect the underside of the MacBook Air. Again, the ventilation hides in the hinge of the MacBook Air and this time the hinge is integrated into the Aluminium unibody. Gone is the black plastic of the old design. On top of the MacBook, you get the standard polished inset Apple logo. The Apple logo is colour matched along with the MacBook Air text on the front of the display.

Benchmark

Now I mentioned the Touch ID button before but here is the button in action. The Mac is locked and with a press of the Touch ID it unlocks itself and it’s very fast in doing so. For those that are interested in the Geekbench scores the MacBook Air brought a single-core score of 3510 and multi-core score of 6957.

The battery life is really very good considering its smaller than the old MacBook Air and they were to do this by Adding the more efficient 1.6 GHz dual core intel i5 Processor. So you can expect about 12 hours of wireless web browsing.  Which is good among the MacBook range.

So if you are looking a portable laptop that will be good for doing some video editing and designing then this MacBook Air would be a good choice. However if you wanted to do some gaming you might be better off looking elsewhere.
