For best results, when the meeting window is open on your computer screen, make sure the microphone icon (probably at the bottom) is muted (shows a slash) or there could be feedback for everyone. And if all you see is a whole page of other participants names and pictures, click on “Speaker View” rather than Gallery View. Click on “Chat” to make a remark when questions or comments are invited. The host may allow one person at a time to unmute their microphone and to speak.
