All Winona State University students and employees should sign in to Zoom using your StarID to join meetings that require authentication. If you are not signed in to Zoom with your StarID credentials, the "(Guest)" tag is appended to your display name in the meeting's Participant list, you may be placed in the session's waiting room, and you will not be recognized as an Alternative Host or Panelist. You can sign in to Zoom using your StarID credentials at any time and you will remain signed in until you sign out or are required to sign in again (e.g., following a major Zoom update).

Open the Zoom Client (desktop application)

  • PC: You might already have a Zoom shortcut on your desktop. You can also select the Start button in the lower-left corner of the screen and type "Zoom" to find the shortcut. Consider pinning it to your taskbar.
  • Mac: Look in your Applications folder. Consider adding Zoom to your dock.
  • Phone or tablet: Open the Zoom app
  • If you can't find the application, download and install it.

Sign in with SSO

If you have never signed in to the Zoom application before or you are signing back in after signing out or following a major Zoom update, follow these instructions. NOTE: If you have signed into Zoom before with a personal Zoom account or with your Google or Facebook credentials, you must first Sign Out. See instructions in the next section on how to Sign Out.

On your computer

  1. Open Zoom desktop application (see instructions above) and select Sign In (Fig 2)

  3. Enter company domain minnstate in the Sign In with SSO window (Fig 4.1) and select Continue (Fig 4.2). Your default browser will open to the StarID sign in page.

Once you sign in, you will remain signed in until you sign out or install a major Zoom update. When you sign in with SSO you are an Authenticated user and will not show up as Guest.
