titleChange default setting to save recordings on a pc

If you are logged in to a meeting room or shared computer do NOT follow these instructions.  If you are regularly recording meetings from a personal comptuer logged on with your username you may wish to record them locally as a default.   Zoom does not recommend setting your recordings to automatically save to a network drive or cloud storage like Dropbox or OneDrive as your recordings may become corrupted.  They strongly suggest that recordings be saved locally and then moved.   To do this:

  1. In Windows
    1. In Windows File Explorer
      1. Scroll down to the Local Disk (C:) section
      2. Right click Local Disk (C:) and select New and then click on Folder

    2. Open up the Zoom desktop client
      1. Click on the Settings cog icon on the right side of the Zoom window
      2. Click Recording
      3. Under Local Recording click Change
