I have a population of users that share computers and I only want them to be able to use the web based version of teams.  It seems that Windows allows the installation of the Teams Windows App even though the users are not administrators on their machines. It doesn’t seem as though there is a setting to prevent installation of the windows app. Is there a another technical solution to prevent users from installing the windows app?

Agree with Adam, you should be able to do this with GPO and App Locker

Thank you for the quick response.  We'll try this.
