Create a Windows Shortcut to Join a Zoom meeting without opening your Browser
When you are provided a link to join a Zoom meeting room, it will look similar to this: https://zoom.us/j/999999999?pwd=NknUqNWtwZz09
https will open your default web browser first, then opens your Zoom app if it's installed (or prompt you to download it if it isn't). Then join the Meeting with the supplied link which may contain the Meeting ID and Passcode.
If you already have the Zoom app installed on your Windows computer, then zoommtg (or zoomus) should be registered as a valid protocol in your system. This allows you to open Zoom directly to join (or start) a meeting automatically, without opening your browser - much faster! Just create a shortcut starting with zoommtg and containing the Meeting ID and Passcode and it will open the Zoom app and join the meeting automatically.
