We are starting to use Microsoft Team in the company. We have automatic startup set up when the user logs in to Windows 10 and we need it to start in minimized mode and there's no way.

 

The problem is that every time we turn on the computer, Teams starts and you see the last conversation, last work computer, etc and we don't want it to be seen because there may be confidential information that we don't want to show when we turn on the computer to have a meeting with an external party.

 

Can you add some functionality in the menu that allows the execution of Teams in minimized mode? With Microsoft Skype for Business it is possible and we don't understand why not with Teams.

 

Thank you

Hi,

 

If you check in settings you have the option "Open application in background", that will start Teams but it will only run in the background and not as open window when the computer starts. Test that setting.

There is also a uservoice requesting this setting to be configured globaly.

Unfortunately this option is not available in Linux version.

Yes, the setting is there, but it does not do anything. I have tried uncheckin and checking it again, but Teams still opens up in a window, not minimized, after a restart. Any ideas for how to fix this? @Linus Cansby

@mstendah You could try clearing cache and/or reinstall Teams from your computer.

@Linus Cansby Running Microsoft Teams Version 1.3.00.21759 (64-bit).  I've got the same problem (application launches full screen every time even with "open in background" setting checked).  Cleared the Teams cache and no change
