How to Access your Zoom recordings

Use the Zoom website to quickly find and manage your recordings

Your Zoom account's Recordings section will show you both the Cloud Recordings you have done, as well as a list of all of the Local Recordings you have done. Cloud Recordings can be fully managed through this section of your account, while the Local Recordings will only show you what you've recorded, and where to find it on your local device(s).

To find both of these sections, please first start by going to your account. General information on logging in to the website dashboard is found here.

The direct path to your Recordings can also be accessed here. Note that if you're currently logged in, you will need to do so. Please refer to the steps outlined in the above link on how to login to the website dashboard.

Cloud Recordings

Your Cloud Recordings tab will be the default view for this section. Here, you can download, share and delete your recordings. You can also recover your recordings here, should you need to. Information on how to do this is found here.

Local Recordings

The tab to the right on the Recordings page will show you information on recordings you've made on through your Zoom applications (Desktop/Mobile).

If you are on the computer where the recording was made, you can use the Open and Delete buttons to manage this content. Attempting to open the recording from a different computer will give you the following message:

Deleting the Local Recording information through the Web portal will simply remove its association from your account. This will not delete any local recording from your computer. You will have to go to that computer and manually remove it yourself. Luckily the Local Recordings list has both the Computer NameĀ and the Locations columns that will show you which Computer to look at, and in what directory those files will be. Clicking the Delete button will give you the following prompt:
