How do I rename myself when in a Zoom meeting?

When in a Zoom meeting as host or participant, you can temporarily rename yourself if need be —

Click the "Participants" icon in the Zoom toolbar

In the Participants window, next to your name click "More" and choose "Rename"

Enter a new name and click "Rename" to save it for that meeting

You will see the new name showing in the Participants window

NOTE: When you rename yourself within a Zoom meeting, the name change is temporary.
