The WebEx Meeting Window is similar to a conference room where people meet in person. The Meeting window tools allow the host to manage the meeting, while providing the environment where participants can view the meeting materials and collaborate.


The WebEx Meeting window has three main areas that you will use to control your meeting environment: the menu toolbar, the panels, and the content viewer.
