Dear all,

How to forward a message in MS Team for Desktop version?

It's just on mobile. I do not see it on PC, Laptop.

And MS Team is High CPU, Disk, Memory.

How to reduce it?

 

Thanks,

The web snd desktop clients don’t have this feature unfortunately!
Hi @linhhai_nguyen

Not currently available on Desktop. There is a uservoice on it here

https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/36519106-add-message-forward-f...

Would recommend you vote to push it up the agenda. Would be nice to have parity across the clients

Hope that answers your question!

Best, Chris

@linhhai_nguyen Forwarding and replying to other messages seems to be possible by copying the sender name and text of the original message and pasting it in the gray area while using the "Quote" feature (see attached pictureForwarding & Replying.png)

Hello @linhhai_nguyen 

You can also forward the message via email by selecting Share to Outlook

As for CPU usage, this post by @Tony Redmond will put it into context for you. https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-teams/teams-and-memory-management/m-p/1537906
