Hello - My Teams is opening all calls / meetings in a separate popped out window and there is no option in settings to disable this.
This feature makes Teams very hard to use when utilising more than one screen because it opens across two screens / off the screens. Adds time to being able to connect to a call quickly.
There is also no option to pop the call back into Teams when the call has commenced?

Unfortunately as of this morning that option has been removed and the awful new meeting experience is MANDATORY :(((((

@ChristianBergstrom What a stupid reply. "Besides our bad experience, we added other stuff that you may like" Why not give us both?

@LO9394 @BGvdS1996 I get that you don't like the new meeting experience because of the separate windows, but no need being impolite as I'm a community member just as you are. I'm pretty sure they would keep the option if it wasn't for all the features that comes with it, don't you think? I'm not saying this or that, but have a look at what you get from using the new experience in comparison if not Get a preview of new meeting features - Office Support (microsoft.com) and breakout rooms wouldn't be possible either.
As for the opinions you should really post them at Microsoft Teams UserVoice instead as that's where they look. MS representatives (besides a few) don't usually read or follow the posts in the community.

Christian, regarding your comment: I tend to prefer fewer but more mature features. Having used Teams for about a year now due to the pandemy I have learned how to do certain things (and I am sure that this applies to other people in the same way). I am not interested in re-learning processes that are already productive for me. Breaking stuff that works for people is in general a bad idea.

I overreacted. I was impolite.
I thought you worked at Microsoft because I saw "Managing O365/M365 Apps & Services" on your profile. Still not a reason to be rude.
For me, the breakoutroom are a good addition, but for the features in that link, I fail to see why that wouldn't be possible without opening a new window.
My annoyance is mostly that it is forced instead of an option.

@Kartikeya_the_helper this is not really a solution:
IMO Microsoft should just not change a behaviour considered useful by many or at least give people a choice.
