Remote Control Not Showing Up

Chrissy1
Listener

Hello,

 

I use has an option to give remote control, but for some reason, it's not appearing as an option. Yes, in my settings I have toggled ON remote control. I'm using a desktop Windows computer, I'm running Zoom 5.8 and it's still not working. I do have the free version, has Zoom made anything changes I'm not aware of? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi @Chrissy1 

 

Windows changes are logged at the link below - but I do not see anything recent related to Remote Control.

Are you the Host in your meetings - and is another Participant requesting remote control from you?

I have the same problem as today. I was surprised the remote control button was gone when I shared my screen. Any update about this issue?

 

Here's what they told me...

 

The following steps should help get the old installation cleared, and get Zoom reinstalled and working for you.

Could you please run the CleanZoom application in the attachments, and then restart your computer when it's finished?

Once done restarting please visit this link https://zoom.us/support/download this will automatically download the newest version for you.

Please install this version once downloaded.

 

 

That didn't work for me.  Still no remote control option.

It is ridiculous! I noticed the same issue on my account. I recommend emailing support, that's my plan.

I am having the same issue. All settings are in place but I cannot get the remote control icon/option to display. Really disappointed right now because I am trying to use this to share features with colleagues.

Just FYI I have ver 5.4 and have both buttons (tool bar and screen share)  Test user ver 5.7 only has screen share

So you're only able to see screen share, that's it?

I have Ver 5.4 and this is my toolbar.  My other user who i tested with does not have the support button

Everyone doing a screen share has this toolbar to do remote control.

I had this issue today while conducting a remote training session. I ended the session and then tested with a coworker and the icon was there. Why would it be there for one and not the other?  made no changes to any of my settings. This has always worked for previous training sessions. Can someone help me out? Could this be due to the version the other person has?

By now, most users have installed the minimum version for remote support sessions, but there are many users that do not have the full desktop client installed and are just using the web client instead. Unfortunately, I do not believe the web client supports remote support sessions. 

Thanks, I thought it might be due to the version they are using. I will get them to install the full version and see if that fixes the issue.

Was there a solution? I have reinstalled, all my settings are good but the button seem to have been replaced by apps. I really need it for teaching.

^^^This is me^^^.  No more remote control button, replaced by apps.  No warning that this was going to happen, and no information on how to fix it.  This means that utilizing Zoom for conducting remote online notary sessions is done.  Thanks Zoom.
