how do i open 2 zoom sessions on one pc? (company pc, zoom is permant open)
I don't think you can open more than 1 zoom session at a time..
Agreed, technically (close to) impossible. How would the software multiplex the videostream between 2 (or more) sessions?
And how would the other party/session know you're talking to them, or to the other session?
It's difficult enough to have multiple conversions at the same time with people in the same room, let alone on the other side of a digital connection...

MS Teams lets you switch to another call, but it then puts your first call on hold, just like in a phonecall, and you can resume later, after ending/pausing the second call.

Actually, I've had teams, skype, and zoom up at the same time.  The trick is I'm not on-camera for the other two.  I usually mute the audio for the one(s) that I'm not in.  It's not possible to have more than one outgoing video, sure.  But incoming is fine.

Yup, here too, (well, not Zoom, but Teams, Skype and Skype for Business). I'm not that busy that I need to be in multiple calls often ;D

So I guess my point is that it's possible- it will just have to be enabled.  And video will not be enabled in both as far as your video cam, I think.

There is an option called "Join different meetings simultaneously on desktop" which is disabled by default. The feature to join multiple meetings simultaneously from the Zoom desktop client allows users to participate in or monitor multiple meetings at the same time. This is ideal for support staff who may need to monitor multiple meetings at the same time.

Once the setting is enabled, you can join multiple meetings by clicking on the join URL or navigating to https://zoom.us/join and entering the meeting ID. The Join button in the Zoom client will only work for the first meeting that you join.

I now own a webcam so I don't need to connect to Zoom on the PC AND my phone!

sorry bad english and Delphi are my hobby ;)
politeness is not one of my strengths in writing, just because it sounds rough doesn't mean that I mean it rough.
