Teams allows you to use a set of images selected by Microsoft as the background for meetings. It’s a nice feature, even if it lacks the ability to upload and use a custom image of your own. This capability was promised, but it looks as if Microsoft knows they need to some work on admin framework before they allow people to upload their own images.

@Kevin-M Hi - maybe I should put the computer back in the box as I have no clue where to find the Finder. Or I should just forget about it and wait for the update in May if there is one. Thanks and sorry that I may remedial in these tech issues

Hi there, You can find the finder application (the one with two faces, one blue and one white) on the dock bar at the edge of your home screen (the one with all the apps in it), the 'Go' menu for finder will appear once you open the app on the very top of the screen (where your time, wifi and other essential tools are, from there find 'Go to Folder' from the drop-down menu and there will be a box that appears, you need to type in what @Kevin-M wrote, (note: some of the script might already be typed in, as it was for me). From there navigate your way through the folders and into the Uploads folder in teams backgrounds.
Hope this helped

Thank you for trying to help.
I am working on a Dell with Windows 10 and no clue what you are referring to about two faces. Maybe I just need to accept I am too **bleep** stupid to try to attempT this an just be content with my drab old background of my kitchen. Saw some really cool Star Wars backgrounds that would be cool, but oh well. Thanks again - stay safe

Haha mate, that's fine, I also had trouble when I was trying this. On windows it a different process, in the bottom left corner of your screen you'll find the windows button that you're familiar with, click on that and then in the search bar type;
(you can copy-paste that and chuck that right it if you want)
from there you should be in a folder where you're able to add any Star Wars images you want.
If there are still any issues feel free to tell me, stay safe.

I see I've added an image which has a few steps, I'd suggest trying the bottom one first as that seems most probable because what might be happening is that your search function could be appearing as hidden.
Hope this helps.

@kg1kg save the image into the %AppData%\Microsoft\Teams\Backgrounds\Uploads folder. You can paste that link into File Explorer. The default backgrounds are PNG files at a resolution of 1920 x 1080, but I've used JPG files and a higher resolution.
