How To Leave Gotomeeting

How To Articles

Exiting a GoToMeeting session may appear straightforward, however, there are important steps that should be noted. As a frequent attendee of GoToMeeting sessions, I recognize the value of a seamless departure. This article will walk you through the steps of leaving a GoToMeeting session and provide personal insights and advice.

Step 1: Locate the Leave Meeting Button

When you’re ready to leave the GoToMeeting session, the first thing you need to do is locate the “Leave Meeting” button. This button is usually located at the bottom right corner of the screen, alongside other meeting controls. It is represented by a door icon, indicating an exit.

Personally, I find it helpful to position my mouse cursor near the “Leave Meeting” button towards the end of the meeting so that I can quickly click on it when needed. This saves me a few seconds and ensures a prompt exit.

Step 2: Confirm Your Decision

Once you’ve located the “Leave Meeting” button, you need to confirm your decision to exit the session. A pop-up window will appear asking you to confirm whether you want to leave the meeting or not. This serves as a safety measure to prevent accidental exits.

Before clicking on the “Leave Meeting” button in the confirmation window, I suggest taking a moment to make sure you have addressed any last-minute questions or concerns. If you still have something important to say, now is the time to speak up. Once you click “Leave Meeting,” you will no longer be able to participate in the session.

Step 3: Leave the Meeting Gracefully

After confirming your decision to leave the meeting, it’s important to leave gracefully without disrupting the ongoing session. Take a moment to say goodbye or express your gratitude, if appropriate. Leaving a positive impression on the host and other participants can go a long way in maintaining professional relationships.

In my experience, it’s also polite to wait for a natural break in the conversation before leaving. If you’re in the middle of a discussion or presentation, it may be best to wait for an appropriate pause before clicking on the “Leave Meeting” button. This shows respect for the speaker and allows for a seamless transition.


Leaving a GoToMeeting session is a simple task, but it’s important to follow the proper steps to ensure a smooth and respectful exit. By locating the “Leave Meeting” button, confirming your decision, and leaving the meeting gracefully, you can leave a positive impression on the host and other participants.

Remember, professionalism and courtesy should always be the guiding principles when participating in virtual meetings. So the next time you find yourself in a GoToMeeting session, keep these steps in mind and exit with confidence.
