Recently, when I choose Stop Video or to participate in a meeting initially with Video Off, it just shows my Name. Previously, it was showing my Profile picture that I selected specifically for the purpose of providing some sort of visual presence. I can't find the Setting to restore my Profile picture to this status.

Make sure you are signed into the Zoom App before joining a meeting, so it syncs and loads your profile picture: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/360032812931-Starting-the-Zoom-desktop-client

I am signed in, and my profile pic doesn't show anymore. Why?
2022-07-21 11:11 AM
This doesn't work for me. My profile pic used to appear with video off whether I was signed in or not, but since switching to a new laptop all I see is my first name. What changed, and how can I change it back?
2022-07-21 11:16 AM
Never mind, I think I figured it out: I hadn't downloaded the app on my new laptop. We'll see if it works at my next meeting.

Same for me. I attend several Zoom's a day and others have their profile picture display when they have video off, but mine doesn't work.
2022-08-07 08:37 AM
I have never been able to show my profile picture during a Zoom meeting when I have my video off. Haven't seen anything in settings to change this.
2022-08-18 03:46 PM
My profile photo used to show when I stopped Video, but now only my name. Was there some change in an update? I can't find any way to change it back.

This is often caused by the following:

My question is for other peoples' meetings. Why does it sometimes show up and not other times?
2022-11-10 12:15 PM
Thank you. Signing in worked for me. The mobile app automatically signs me in, so my profile picture always showed. But in the desktop app, signing in first was necessary.

I haven't ever been able to activate my profile picture either in any computer I've had over the years. I just upgraded Zoom and still no luck. I see other participant images, but not mine. Is this an issue with the basic plan? Could it be affected by having linked accounts? If so, how do I eliminate those?
2022-09-25 10:26 AM
Sure, the profile picture shows when 'stop video' AND signed in. But an extra step to sign in, IS a problem. Background is accessible when not signed in. Please upgrade Zoom so that profile picture is locally stored, and a sign in is not required. I don't have time for the extra sign in and I don't want to always be signed in. Thank you.

Whenever I turn my video off during a zoom conference with an external host, my profile picture does not show up. I have the zoom app updated and loaded on my computer. What is this extra sign in for joining a meeting? I usually sign in with the link and password when a password is required. How do I resolve this?

I just did the "sign in" and it worked. It's counterintuitive but when you use your own desktop app, you have to sign in. Bad design, but that did work.
