How to turn your microphone and webcam on or off in a WebEx meeting

Once you sign into a WebEx meeting you can easily turn your microphone or webcam on and off.

It is common courtesy to turn your microphone off if you are not presenting. This helps reduce background noise for all participants.

Also, please do not turn your webcam on unless it is needed. This uses extra bandwidth and can make the session operate slowly.
